Two Southern PDP Governors Who Have Never Dumped The Party

Some Peoples Democratic Party PDP Leaders have been committed to the Progress of the Party. It should be recalled that some Leaders of the PDP have never dumped the PDP for another Party since they joined the PDP. It should be recalled that some Governors under the Platform of the Party, recently dumped the Party for the All Progressives Congress APC. The Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, The Governor of Cross Rivers State, Ben Ayade and Bello Matawalle who is the Governor of Zamfara State have all dumped the PDP for the APC.

One of the Governor who has never dumped the PDP for another Party, is the Governor of Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Wike. Governor Wike is committed to the Progress of PDP in the State and the entire Southsouth. It should be recalled that Governor Wike was one of the PDP Governors that Pionered how the former National Chairman of the Party, Prince Uche Secondus was removed as Chairman of the Party. This is to show the level of Commitment of Governor Wike to the Progress of his Party.

It should be recalled that the former Governor of the State, Rotimi Amaechi dumped the PDP for APC when The former President, Goodluck Jonathan contested for Presidential election in 2015 Presidential race but Wike refused to follow him to APC in the State. Though, Governor Wike and Amaechi are not in good terms but that is not an excuse for Governor Wike to remain in PDP. Governor Wike has remained committed to PDP even before he became the Governor of the State. It should be recalled that Wike was the former Minister of State for Education, before he became the Governor of the State.

Another PDP Governor from Southsouth who has never dumped the PDP for another Party is the Governor of Delta State, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa. Okowa has also remained committed to the Progress of the PDP both in his State and in Southsouth. Governor Okowa is a silent achiever in the State and it will be difficult for another Governor that will take the mantle of Leadership from him, to Perform more than him. Meanwhile, Delta State is a neighboring state to Rivers State. Though, there might be other PDP Governors in Southsouth who have not dumped PDP for another Party, apart from Wike and Okowa but the two Governors have been committed to the Progress of the Party in Southsouth.
