The immediate past National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has responded to the threats by Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike.
Secondus in a short reply told Wike that he is not God who could “crush” anyone.
A visibly angry Wike while speaking at the flagging off ceremony of the construction of internal roads at Omagwa in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state on Saturday, vowed to “finish” anyone who pitches his tent with the “enemies of the state.
“If anybody fights our system, we will fight the person back.
“We removed a national party chairman who was not doing well. All of them were here; we all agreed; now they are going to Abuja to hold meetings with the man we removed, thinking that you will use that to fight us; we will crush them,” Wike threatened.
But Secondus, in a terse statement by Ike Abonyi, his media aide noted that his attention “has been drawn to the haughty and disdainful threat from Governor Nyesom Wike that he will crush anybody who works with him (Secondus) in support of the PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar.
“The simple responses of Prince Secondus to the empty threats are: ‘Wike you cannot crush anybody, I cannot fight, only God can crush”
Secondus also drew the attention of Wike to the advice given by Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, who told public officers that ‘no condition is permanent,’ reminding the Rivers State governor that nobody can become the governor of a state or President of this country forever.
