Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has alleged that the recently sacked Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff, was an ”agent of the All Progressives Congress (APC)”.

The Supreme Court had last week ordered Sheriff to vacate his position as the party’s Chairman after a long-standing leadership tussle between him and Ahmed Makarfi.

And Wike, who organised a thanksgiving service to celebrate the court verdict, said Sheriff was ready to ”Woe betide any person who is a mole of the deadly party (APC)”.

He, however, said that PDP will embark on reconciliation mission to reach out to all its aggrieved members.

”While we are reconciling, we must be vigilant. Nobody will take me unawares. Satan will never sleep. Satan will always find ways to cause havoc,” he said.

Excuses and blames

On the APC-led Federal government, Wike insisted that the president Muhammadu Buhari administration had yet to make a difference in its two years of governance.

”Two years after the mandate, what is the situation? Excuses and blames without delivery. Look at how individuals took it upon themselves to destroy the party that gave them life.

”PDP is the only party that is a household name in Nigeria. There is no unit in the country without a member of the PDP,” he added.
