PDP Breaks Silence After Governor Wike Calls Party Leaders ‘Tax Collectors’


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to Governor Nyesom Wike’s claim of some members of its National Working Committee (NWC) being sycophants.

In a statement released by PDP’s national secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party denied sponsoring a media publication to malign Governor Nyesom Wike and further stated that it won’t allow its enemies to cause distraction within its fold ahead of the Edo State governorship election.

The statement read;

“The NWC also wishes to place on record that none of its members has acted like a “tax collector” in whatever meaning the term represents, either in the process leading to the Edo primary election, or any other state.

“Our party holds Governor Wike and indeed all our PDP governors, who, of course, have been the pillars of our great party, with utmost respect and had always consulted them on all party affairs.

“PDP appreciates the efforts and sacrifices of our governors and will not allow enemies of our party, who are out to cause disunity in our fold by sponsoring baseless publications against our leaders, to have their way.
