The Rivers state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have issued a stern warning to the All Progressives Congress (APC) Guber candidate in the state, Dakuku Peterside.

The party accused Peterside of insulting the Governor of the state, Nyesom Wike, and warned him to stop calling the Governor names.

An excerpt of the statement signed by Jerry Needam, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the PDP Chairman in the state, Bro Felix Obuah reads: “Dakuku Peterside, perhaps, yet to recover from the nightmare of occupying an office he has no capacity to direct, an illusion placed on him by no other than his godfather, an equally deluded Chibuike Amaechi, without recourse to commonsense has continued to castigate the executive governor of the State, Chief Barr Nyesom Wike, calling him all manner of names as though we live in a lawless society."

Adding that “It’s on record that Mr. Dakuku Peterside had before now described Governor Wike as infantile, insulting the Governor at the slightest opportunity unrestrained and uncautioned. Same Dakuku Peterside on Tuesday, February 09, 2016 at a press conference in APC State Secretariat made rude denigrating allegations against the person of the Governor and most regrettably, putting words into the mouth of His Excellency by recalling and quoting utterances which according to him were those of Gov Wike.”

The statement also said “We therefore want to warn this political neophyte, Dakuku Peterside to caution himself, tread softly on the path of respect for the rule of law, civility and rectitude or be treated like a tout and political jobber he is. Even if, without conceding, Governor Wike had described election riggers as common criminals that deserve no better treatment than other criminals, what is wrong with that honest statement except if Dakuku Peterside is one and rather than be handled as a criminal wishes to be applauded and pampered like a king but God forbid.

“He is therefore warned for the last time to show some decorum and stop insulting the office of the Governor as the PDP and the authorities will not and cannot continue to watch him despise the sacrosanctity of that office. A word, they say is enough for the wise.”

Dakuku Peterside also alleged that the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom  Wike connived with justices to win at Supreme Court.
