Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has advised former Kaduna State governor, Ahmed Makarfi, to stop badmouthing him and focus on delivering Kaduna State for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general elections.

Wike stated this on Tuesday while reacting to Makarfi’s recent jabs at him over the internal crisis rocking the PDP.

Speaking during inauguration of the sand-filled area and estate layout project in Ogbum-Nu-Abali, Port Harcourt, the governor also mocked at an alleged rapist in Rivers PDP he failed to name for frolicking with PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in his campaigns when you should be in Rivers canvassing support for Atiku.

Wike said he watched Makarfi on national television say, “Wike, you’re sabotaging other people. I don’t know who says the other people have not. What I want to advise Makarfi is, look, you have a job, make sure PDP wins in Kaduna State. That is your job, leave Wike alone.

“Take it upon yourself that Kaduna falls to PDP. I don’t want to hear excuses that they rigged election or they didn’t rig election. That is what I’ve told everybody. In Kano, make sure PDP wins. In Niger, make PDP wins, in Jigawa, make sure PDP wins. If you win, then see whether PDP wins here or not. It’s operation deliver your state. Don’t use anybody’s state to add up.”

On the unnamed rapist Rivers PDP member frolicking with Atiku, the Rivers governor said, “I was watching television yesterday (Monday) when they went to Kano to receive Shekarau. I saw one rapist from Rivers state sitting at the back where he went to join them to receive Shekarau but I asked him, how many people have you made to join your party in your state?’

“You have gone to receive somebody somewhere but you have not made efforts to receive other people to join your own party in your state. You like when food is ready, you’ll go but for you to cook, it is where people have cooked that you go to eat the food but you won’t cook your own.

“As people who want the party to win or who want their candidate to win the election, what role are you playing in your state to make sure your party wins the election? How many people have you been able to galvanise, mobilise to leave their party to join your party? That is to show you are committed, willing and ready to make your party win an election.

“It’s not to go to Abuja and begin to gossip, say all kinds of things, come home and mobilise, let us see the capacity you have. It’s operation deliver your poling units, operation deliver your ward, operation deliver your local government. That is what politics is all about.”
