Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike who is also the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party National Campaign Council for the Edo State Governorship Election, has hit back at his Kano State counterpart , Abdullahi Ganduje who earlier said that the Rivers Governor deserves to be isolated that he will show Ganduje that he is from Niger Delta by ‘choping him to coma and his dollar‘.
He said this during the inauguration of the PDP campaign council in Abuja on Tuesday .
Wike said neither he nor the PDP could be intimidated by threats coming from the All Progressives Congress over the Edo Governorship election.
He further said that he was told that Ganduje said and also read that he is going to isolate him until election is over. He however questioned that between him and Ganduje who suppose to be isolated in the country, if Nigeria was to be a country.
He then said that a man who pockets dollar deserves to be isolated and that’s why he was made the Chairman of APC for the election to spend the dollar.
