Vote Of Confidence Cannot Save You...Wike Tells Ayu


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Saturday mocked the former National Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, Uche Secodus for celebrating the vote of confidence passed on his successor, Senator Iyorcha Ayu, by the party’s National Executive Committee.

The governor said no amount of confidence vote would save Ayu from being ousted from the position.

Wike stated this at a reception for over 90 defectors from various political parties into the PDP in Port Harcourt on Saturday.

The governor said Secondus seemed to have forgotten in a hurry that it was not the first time a sitting national chairman was removed after a vote of confidence was passed in him.

Wike said a new strategy will be adopted for the coming political season in which political ‘bigmen’ will be replaced with people who are domicile among their people in various communities.

He said, “I was watching, listening. They say there is one man called Secondus. They say he was dancing and celebrating that NEC gave their person a vote of confidence. He forgets history.

“Ask him, the same NEC through Aliyu Babaginda, who moved a motion for vote of confidence supported by the same person, Ndude Elumelu. They gave him a vote of confidence. What happened? He left the office.

“We don’t fight and go back. If you like, you can have as many as 20 votes of confidence, it is not my business. My business and my team is to make sure the right thing is done.

“And the right thing must be done, whether today or tomorrow. So, let nobody worry him or herself. If you are dancing, come home and dance. Come and mobilise for the person you think will win the election.”

He challenged Secondus to return home and mobilise support for the candidate he was supporting for the 2023 elections.
