The Senate Aspirant led this out on Monday at the Asaba airport while returning from Abuja.
According to his statement, Wike has constituted nuisance to the PDP.
Ned added that Rivers state governor has done a lot of damage to the party and should be shown the way out.
He said, “Wike is a nuisance, quote me anywhere. If I were [in] the leadership of the party, I would have acted differently. I would have done things differently. He has done a lot of damage to the PDP and I don’t know what they are waiting for to show him the way out.”
Recall that Wike and other party Governors have been callingl for the resignation of the National Chairman of the PDP, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, to step down the way for the emergence of a Southern Chairman in line with the zoning arrangement of the party.
The governors have also refused to attend the campaign rallies of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
- But, on Sunday evening, Governor Ortom at the Makurdi Airport, received Governors Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu and Seyi Makinde of Oyo state for commissioning of projects in the state.
