Naija News reports that Melaye during an interview with PUNCH spoke on the issue of romance with other political parties by the River State Governor, Nyesom Wike.
According to him, Wike is on a democratic mission of trying to woo other people to PDP because they need them to win the election.
Melaye insists that Wike is working for PDP and inviting some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to Rivers State is part of the efforts to win more souls.
He said: “Why are you not thinking of it this way that Wike is on a democratic evangelism and he is even trying to woo those people to the advantage of the PDP? Why are you not looking at it from that perspective?”
“I will rather say that it is timely because he needs them to support the PDP to win the election and this is the time to do it and you are not privy to the discussions that Wike had with the APC members he is inviting. I still insist that Wike is working for the PDP and inviting those people to Rivers State is also part of his efforts to win more souls for the PDP, because Wike did not go to Lagos State, Lagos State governor came to Wike, and I think you should begin to look at the issue from that angle.”
Maleye added that there is no crisis in PDP but they are only experiencing disagreement and it is allowed in politics.
In his words: “I want to start by correcting the misconception that you and many others have that there is a crisis in the PDP. I want to say without fear that there is no crisis anywhere. What we have is disagreement, and disagreement is allowed in politics. Like I said on Channels Television, democracy is noisy and it is normal for noise to be made, but the truth of the matter is that the PDP is one strong, reliable and indivisible political party.
“Disagreements are normal; after every primary election, it is expected that there will be disagreement and what is happening is normal. But if you are specifically talking about Governor Wike, I want to assure you that we are on top of the situation and reconciliation is ongoing. We’ve gone extremely far on it. We have made tremendous progress. Wike actually is a distinguished member of our party. He is a strong pillar of our party and I can assure you that he will work and support the candidature of Atiku Abubakar and the PDP.”
