The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has faulted an allegation by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, that members of the party’s National Working Committee, NWC, are tax collectors.

Recall that Mr Wike had on Tuesday pulled out of the reconciliation of the Edo State chapter of the party. Accusing the party NWC of being “being sycophants and tax collectors who would never tell the truth”.

Reacting to Mr Wike’s claim, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan, Wednesday, said: “The NWC also wishes to place on record that none of its members has acted like a tax collector in whatever meaning the term represents, either in the process leading to the Edo primary election or any other state.”

The PDP also called for unity among its members, urging them to resist an attempt by “enemies” to cause a crisis in the party.

“Our party holds Wike and indeed all our PDP governors, who, of course, have been the pillars of our great party, with the utmost respect and had always consulted them on all party affairs.

“The PDP appreciates the efforts and sacrifices of our governors and will not allow enemies of our party, who are out to cause disunity in our fold by sponsoring baseless publications against our leaders, to have their way.
