PDP: Nigeria now has a viable opposition says Governor Wike

Rivers State Governor , Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared  that the judgment of the Supreme Court on the  PDP crisis is a victory for democracy  as the nation will now have a viable opposition.

Speaking after the Supreme Court in Abuja on Wednesday, Governor Wike said: “This judgment shows that there will be opposition  in Nigeria.

“I am very  happy. Rivers  people are very happy because  we have no other party aside the PDP”.

The governor  said that the PDP  will emerge from the crisis stronger because all stakeholders  will work hard to rebuild  the party.

He urged Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and his supporters to keep their word and work with other stakeholders  in the interest of the party.

The  governor  said that  the former PDP  Chairman  called him last  week to assure him that he will respect whatever  decision  reached by the  Supreme Court  .

“I urge them  to keep their word. All of us will work together to re-position the party. The party will go back to the  drawing  board to  move ahead “, the  governor said.

He added: “I don’t  see any reason why Sheriff will not be a part of the party. He spoke to me last week that  whatever the situation he will remain in the party”.

He said that  at the end of the day, it is expected that the Caretaker Committee Chairman of PDP, Senator Ahmed Makarfi will meet with  all stakeholders to plan the  time table for a national convention.

Governor Wike  congratulated  all the members of the party for their victory at the Supreme Court, urging them  to build bridges of friendship to further  strengthen  the party.
