IBADAN, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, has rebuked Governor Nyesom Wike for threatening to crush him over his support for Atiku Abubakar.
Wike lost the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential ticket to the former vice president at the Abuja primary in May.
Sokoto Governor, Aminu Tambuwal’s last-minute deal with Atiku knocked Wike, who supported him at the 2018 convention in Port Harcourt, to the second position.
The Rivers helmsman accuses his Sokoto counterpart Aminu Tambuawal of betraying him by stepping down for Atiku.
Voiceofnaija.ng reports that the governor threatened to crush anyone working with Secondus.
Wike lamented that influential politicians who claimed to be with him have shifted loyalty to his rivals.
“We will take every might we have, we will even leave our enemy and finish you first.
“So all of you going to Abuja to hold meetings with our enemies in the state, I’m going to finish you to the last”, he vowed.
In reply, a terse statement by the ex-chairman’s media office reminded the governor that he would not be in power till eternity.
Secondus condemned Wike’s “disdainful threat that he will crush anybody who works with him in support of the PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar.”
“Wike you cannot crush anybody, I cannot fight or join issues with you, only God can crush,” he stressed.
Quoting Nnamdi Azikiwe’s advisory, Secondus added: “No condition is permanent and nobody can become Governor of a state or President of this country forever.”
