One Thing Gov. Wike Said That Shows He Has No Interest In Becoming PDP National Chairman

In Nigeria, the two notable political parties are the All Progressive Congress (APC) and the People's Democratic Party (PDP). Regarding the latter, the party has been disrupted since Uche Secondus, the former national chairman, was relieved off his duty. Since his termination as the party's chairman, the question of the lips of many members of the party is "who will emerge the next National chairman of the People's Democratic Party?"

BBC News Interviewer.

People have been speculating that Rivers state Governor, His Excellency Nyesom Wike, has been stylishly showing interest in becoming the party's next national chairman. Governor Nyesom Wike's recent interview with BBC News Pidgin made things more clearer to the populace. Governor Nyesom Wike said one thing that shows he has no interest in becoming PDP national chairman.

Out of the many things Governor Nyesom Wike said during the interview, the single thing which relates with his loss of interest in becoming PDP national chairman goes was when he said, "I am not interested in becoming the chairman.

Governor Nyesom Wike explained the statement above saying that the power he has is "to vote who the next party's chairman should be in the forthcoming PDP national convention." Governor Nyesom Wike said politics is all about interest and not a game where people will expect him to fold hands and watch things unfold.

Governor Nyesom Wike added that what matters for now is the unity of the party and not the national chairman per se. He highlighted that when the party had a national chairman in the past, there was no unity among the party members. To him, unity should be sought first before a consideration of a party chairman.

Dear esteemed audience, do you also think Governor Nyesom Wike really has no interest in becoming the national chairman despite how many people believe he's a strong option for the PDP?
