Who’s your father? You’re an ingrate for threatening PDP – Gov Wike to Philip Shaibu



Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers, has described Philip Shaibu, Edo deputy governor, as an ingrate for threatening to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)..

Speaking at the inauguration of the eastern bypass road project in Port Harcourt on Saturday, Wike, who was speaking angrily, tongue-lashed Shaibu for daring to threaten the PDP on television.

Wike said the PDP gave Godwin Obaseki and Shaibu the party’s ticket when they were denied the same by the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the 2020 state election.

“Threatening the party, that there are alternatives to PDP. This is the same people that were kneeling down to beg for us to give them the umbrella, today you have the effrontery to threaten the PDP. Such a shame. These are the same people when they were denied tickets under APC, they were running helter-skelter begging everybody to give them an umbrella and we gave them an umbrella,” he said.

“And he lost his local government when we were in Edo, he lost. And he would come out on television to threaten the party that there are alternatives, look at the deputy governor, it’s unfortunate.”

Shaibu had appeared on a Channels Television programme where he said he and Obaseki may leave the PDP if the party continues to treat them as outcasts.

Wike said he has written to the leadership of the party at the national level to discipline the deputy governor for the comment.

“I have written to the national chairman of the party that if they don’t constitute a disciplinary committee against the deputy governor, I will invoke the sanctions of the party and will make sure they must discipline that deputy governor,” Wike
