The rivers governor affirmed he and others insistence on remaining in the party to force resignation of Ayu in the interest of fairness and equity, expressing hope that the party in the end could do the needful as going into next year’s election .
Wike said, “We cannot allow this opportunity that Nigerians have given to us to go. If we miss it, we will pay dearly. If the party so wish to suspend me they should go ahead. In fact, I dare them to suspend me. They know what I can do.
“Who will suspend me? What do you think is my job here? I’m not saying I’m bigger than the party but those who ran away from the party, and they cannot suspend me from the party. I beg them, today, today, they should come and suspend me. Anything they see, they will take.
