Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state says he has no regrets in ensuring Ali Modu Sheriff joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The defection of Sheriff from the All Progressives Congress (APC) and his enthronement as the PDP National Chairman was characterised by power tussle, litigation and counter litigation.
The power tussle between him and the party’s caretaker chairman, Ahmed Makarfi, resulted in a 14-month crisis.
And Wike said it was unfortunate that ”some people were in the meeting when the decision was taken, only to deny being part of the meeting.
I don’t live that kind of life; and for your information, I don’t have any regret taking that action, and even if such opportunities crop up again, I will not withdraw,” he told newsmen on Sunday.
Wike reassured Nigerians that the party is ”back and better” and it is ready to reclaim power from the ruling APC.
According to him, the success of the party’s non-elective convention on Saturday was a sign that it was ready for the 2019 general election.
He boasted that the APC was not a match for the PDP, adding that those who left the PDP for the APC are regretting their decision and are willing to rejoin the party.topics from
