The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State has said Governor Nyesom Wike cannot be impeached.

The party made the assertion in response to comments made by former All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the state, Dakuku Peterside that Wike would not finish his tenure.

The Rivers PDP’s remarks were made by state Publicity Secretary, Samuel Nwanosike while speaking to journalists in Port Harcourt on Monday, August 29, 2016.

“Dakuku Peterside should know that the governor cannot be impeached because in the state House of Assembly, the PDP is in the majority. The issue of the governor’s regime coming to an end cannot come up,” Nwanosike said.

“Governor Wike is using the resources at his disposal to develop the state and that is why he will continue to enjoy the support of the people. They can try as much as they can, they cannot do anything to Governor Wike.

“Rivers State is PDP. We have got up to the Supreme Court and we won. So, to say that Wike’s administration will soon come to an end does not make any meaning to us,” he added.

The state Publicity Secretary of the APC, Chris Finebone, however dismissed Nwanosike’s comments saying that “Rivers belongs to the APC and will remain APC.”
