Frustration at the 2017 Peoples Democratic Party, PDP National Elective Convention deepens after former Governor of Cross River State, Senator Liyel Imoke’s alleged attempt at frustrating Wike’s Secondus at the just concluded National Convention met a brick wall.
The former Senator according to TNN was said to clandestine a meeting with stakeholders from the West to rally support for former colleague, Gbenga Daniel, despite initially assuring Hon. Nyesom Wike, Governor of Rivers State and the PDP Governors his determination to support their joint course.
Meanwhile, the Governor of Cross River State, Senator Ben Ayade and that of Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, did rallied round Wike to produce Prince Uche Secondus as the party National chairman.
Currently, reports according to TNN says, Imoke is shamefaced and disillusioned, and contemplating leaving the Party but not for the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The report further said, “Information from his cousin who pleads anonymity said Imoke hinted of a mega party in the offing. A lot of people feel that is the reason why up till now he hasn’t congratulated Secondus.”
The chairman on the other side has equally shown disdain for the backstabbing nature of Imoke who had earlier assured him of his support.
The begging question now is; how influential would Imoke be in the PDP now? Time would tell…
