“” When the court of Appeal judgment came against us surprisingly, because we knew we were right, every body was running away, everybody was running, away, but Governor Wike called me and asked if was ready for the fight, and i said i was ready as always, he then assured me that we are going to reclaim our party and the rest is history

” Yes, there are many others who supported in different ways, but no one single individual enormously contributed as he ( Wike) did for us to have the PDP that we have today

” if it is by appointment and I have the power to appoint, I will simply just appoint you( Wike), so that, you’ll go home and rest, but it’s democracy, it’s a convention, but the delegates know those who have been with them and will continue to be with them; the people know” he added
