Philip Shaibu, who threatened to leave the party(PDP), made the statement while receiving the PDP national Chairman Iyorchia Ayu, in Benin city the Edo State Capital

The governor revealed he had written a letter to the National Chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu, requiring disciplinary action against the Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shuaibu, for his remarks against the PDP.

“This is the thing I am talking about impunity. I was watching when a deputy governor was ranting in the media, threatening the party that there is an alternative to PDP.

“This is the same deputy governor who knelt down to beg for us to give them an umbrella. Today, he has the effrontery to threaten PDP,” Wike said.

Governor Wike made the statement on Saturday, during the inauguration of the Eastern Bypass Road project in Port Harcourt. Wike described Shaibu as an ingrate for threatening to leave the PDP for another party.

There have been series of crisis swaying the PDP in Edo State over who controls the Party in the State.

The governor also hinted at the Federal High Court judgement which sacked Ebonyi State Governor Dave Umahi and his deputy Eric Igwe from office for defecting to the All Progressive Congress (APC) from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Governor Nyesome Wike stated that his party (PDP) was ready to go to the Supreme Court to reclaim its mandate.

“Governor Umahi can be sure we will pursue this case up to the Supreme Court and by the grace of God, PDP will recover its mandate,” he said.
