Wike’s alleged resignation, a misleading falsehood —PDP

Chairman of the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Felix Obuah, has described as false, misleading and spurious, the media report that Chief Nyesom Wike has resigned his appointment as the Minister of State for Education and as a member of the Federal Executive Council. Obuah, in a statement issued by his media aide, Mr Jerry Needam, in Port Harcourt, on Monday, said it was not true that the Rivers PDP chieftain had resigned. “The leader of the PDP in Rivers State and Minister of State for Education, Chief Wike, has not resigned. He is still a minister and a member of the Federal Executive Council. Therefore, the publication is completely false and misleading,” he said. The Rivers PDP chairman alleged that the national newspaper involved (not the Nigerian Tribune) had, on a daily basis, been acting contrary to the ethics of journalism, writing “malevolent, criminal, spurious, misleading and apparently paid reports,” all targeted at PDP and Wike.
