The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State has warned the defeated All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the state, Dakuku Peterside to respect the office of the state governor.
The party was reacting to Dakuku’s outburst against the Supreme Court ruling, which validated Gov Nyesom Wike’s election .
The party in a statement on Tuesday urged him to desist from castigating Governor Wike.
The statement was signed by Jerry Needam, the special adviser on Media and Publicity to the Rivers PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah.
The statement 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, Nyesom Wike, calling him all manner of names as though we live in a lawless society.”
“It’s on record that Peterside had before now described Governor Wike as infantile, insulting the Governor at the slightest opportunity unrestrained and uncautioned.
The same 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.”
“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.”
