Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi has described his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike, as a dictator saying many of the governors on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party – PDP – are very unhappy with him.
Umahi spoke exclusively to ARISE News and criticized Wike for single-handedly controlling the affairs of the PDP autocratically.
“Wike must know he is a dictator; Wike must know that one person cannot be called a crowd and Wike must know that a lot of governors in the PDP are very sad with him,” Umahi said.
He added that “Wike remote controls the party and he said that I made my brother the vice-chairman of PDP Southeast. I fund the southeast PDP completely. He has forgotten that he single-handedly made Secondus the PDP Chairman, he has forgotten that he also wanted to impose one of his own as the minority leader in the House of Representatives.
“He must know that there is nothing that happens in the PDP without his authorization; he must know that he said that the PDP working committee members are beggars and armed robbers and bribe-takers.
“He has called them all kinds of unprintable names, and I have asked Governor Wike, he is my friend, and let’s not take on ourselves because it will be very dangerous. So let us focus on the party, the party does not belong to him and this is nothing personal and he is demonstrating the dictatorship tendencies in him by taking on me a fellow governor.”
