The Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike is said to be restrategiging on his next move following the failure by his camp in the PDP to force the removal of Senator Iyorcha Ayu as National Chairman at the National Working Committee, NWC, meeting.

Wike at Degema Local Government Area to inaugurate Rivers State Government’s upgrade of Community Secondary School in Harry’s Town, also shunned the chant of “Ayu you must go” and the recurring heated political comments that have defined his recent appearances in public functions over his differences with Ayu and the PDP Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

Contrary expectations in some quarters that Ayu could be removed Thursday, the PDP NWC at the meeting gave Ayu a confidence vote to carry on as national chairman. It urged Wike and all aggrieved voices of dissent to bury their anger and support the party to win the 2023 elections.

A sombre Wike, kept mum on the outcome of the NWC meeting, and focused on his governorship stewardship, saying: “All through this week, we have been busy trying to make people understand what Rivers have been doing in the education sector.

“Before people where saying, is it only road, road, we do. Now since Monday we have been talking about tertiary education. We are now talking about basic education. By the time we finish we will also go back to the health sector and let the state see what we have done in the health sector.

“For me, it is touching all round sectors, because no one sector can be said to be more important. We are trying to do more of the roads because road attracts development. If there are no roads, people will not go and build houses, and will not invest.”
