Governors Fayose and Wike almost exchanged blows at the #PDPNigeria convention #HNNPolitics

How Fayose, Wike almost exchanged blows at PDP Convention

Governors Nyesom Wike of Rivers Sate and Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State ended their vociferous support for Senator Ali Modu Sheriff as acting national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on a rather sour note yesterday.

The duo almost came to blows after it became clear that they were riding a lame donkey.

While Wike remained steadfast in his support for the retention of Sheriff as chairman of the party at its convention in Port Harcourt, Fayose sensationally backed out.

And thus ended the controversial three month tenure of the former Borno State governor in the saddle.

But Sheriff insisted that he remained chairman.

The convention itself was aborted and a former governor of Kaduna State, Senator Ahmed Makarfi was picked to replace Sheriff in a desperate move to save the party from being submerged by the leadership crisis.
