A former spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party, Kola Ologbondiyan, has revealed that Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, almost suffered a heart attack when former Speaker of the House of the Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, announced his exit from the party in July 2020.
Ologbondiyan stated this on Arise TV on Friday, adding that Wike, who was a presidential aspirant at the last primary, is a faithful party man.
He said, “I always tell people about this. When the former Speaker, Honourable Yakubu Dogara left the Peoples Democratic Party, Governor Wike nearly suffered heart attack. That is love, that is passion for your political party.”
He also explained that contrary to many speculations that Wike would leave the party, he won’t.
Wike has been at loggerheads with PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, since the latter trounced him to clinch the much-coveted ticket. Wike has also been reportedly riled when Atiku snubbed him to pick Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as his running mate.
