Wike to PDP: If you dare us, we will teach you a lesson
According to him, Rives State never lobbied for the convention to be held at the state but was very happy when the state was chosen for such event noting that the convention will boost the economy of Rivers state.
He advised the PDP to stick to the plans and not plan to use Rivers state as harlot saying, they will teach the party a bitter lesson if they shift the venue away from Rivers State.
“Let me warn the party, if you dare, Rivers State will teach the party a lesson. Those days have passed when they took Rivers State for granted. Nobody can use and dump Rivers State.
“No presidential aspirant can use and dump Rivers State. We never lobbied for it, we never asked for it, but it will boost the economy of the state. People will make money.
“Those who are against Rivers people from making money to improve their businesses, will not get our support.
“I don’t know why anyone who wants to be president, will be afraid of a venue. Then you are not prepared for the election.
“Nobody should dare Rivers State any longer. Enough is enough. PDP should know that we are not a punching bag. We are not a people you can use and push. We are not harlots. Whenever you want, you come. When you finish, you push us aside.
“We will retaliate at the appropriate time. When you go, tell your colleagues, the presidential aspirants. We were not interested, but having given it to us, you cannot insult us
