Nyesom Wike has vowed to help his political camp get rid of the factions allied with Abubakar Atiku and the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party.
He made the announcement while commissioning a project in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the State.
This is in response to the PDP’s failure in the 2019 and 2023 elections, which he attributes to failure in not keeping to the party’s constitution.

Governor Wike attributed the PDP’s loss in the just-concluded presidential election to those who he said had refused to obey the party’s constitution, and he promised to chase them out of the party and begin the process of rebuilding it. He referred to the move as the “second phase of the war.”
“These people left our party in 2014-2015, our party lost; again, they came back, and our party has lost again. They have destroyed our party. We are going to chase them away from our party. They have no role to play for our party,” Wike said.
Governor Wike further criticized the leadership of the PDP for accusing the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of not following election guidelines when the PDP allegedly refused to follow the party’s constitution. He also mocked the PDP leaders for staging a protest against INEC, describing them as “students unions.”
The governor’s statement has created a stir within the PDP and beyond, with many wondering how he intends to chase out influential party members such as Atiku and Ayu. Some party members have criticized Governor Wike for his comments, saying that such divisive statements are not helpful to the party.
It is unclear whether Governor Wike’s statement is a personal opinion or a strategic plan by the PDP to reposition itself ahead of future elections. However, his comments have generated reactions from party members and political observers, with many calling for caution and unity within the PDP.
