Gov Nyesom Wike of Rivers State says the G-5 governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are not dead but are using silence to fight now.
The governor said the group has withdrawn from talking regularly in public to embark on strategic actions in silence in order to achieve set goals.
So, no matter how much those who think that the group has either disintegrated or died, he said, they are yet anxiously pushing to know the activities of the group.
The governor assured them that they will never come near knowing their next line of action.
Gov Wike stated this at St. Paul’s Primary School Field, in Ahoada Town, venue of the campaign flag-off rally organised by the Rivers State PDP campaign council for Ahoada East Local Government Area on Tuesday.
Wike, who described Senator Lee Maeba, a member of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council in the State in negative light for claiming that the G-5 is dead.
The governor said it is preposterous for a man he described as clueless who he said sold oil block allocated to him and allegedly took the proceeds to Chicago, United State, where he said he spent it to destroy a family of a kinsman from Khana Local Government Area to talk about the G-5.
The governor insisted that in politics, there is time to always appear in public to indulge in talks, and having satisfactorily maximised that time, the group has withdrawn into silence to activate requisite political actions because 25th February 2023 is in view.
“You people say G-5 is dead. We that you said are dead are not worried. But, you that is alive is worried. We are not talking again, we are not worried. Yet you are worried. You fail to realise that in politics there is time for talking and time for action. Action has started and 25th February is the D-day.
“You can never know what our plans and strategies are no matter how you people pressurise us, we will not disclose our strategy. The more you look, the less you see.”
