Some days after the screening committee for Rivers State had disqualified almost all the aspirants leaving former Education Minister, Nyesom Wike, as the only major aspirant to contest the PDP ticket.
Lancelot Anyanya, one of the aspirants initially screened out, mounted a spirited pressure on the party leadership asking for verifiable reasons why Wike should alongside others, not contest the PDP ticket.
The party unable to give any cogent reason for the disqualification reviewed their cases and gave them a clean bill.
“I am on a rescue mission. There must be orderliness in our political life and part of that orderliness is that Rivers State should be returned to where it rightly belongs and that is the PDP.
