The Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers State has dismissed media reports that the Supervising Minister of Education, Chief Nyesom Wike, has resigned his appointment and membership of the Federal Executive Council. The minister reportedly resigned from the FEC in order to pursue his governorship ambition in Rivers State.But the PDP in the state said in a statement in Port Harcourt on Monday that Wike was still in charge of the education ministry at the federal level.
The statement read,
“The attention of the Peoples Democratic Party has been drawn to some media publications and speculations in some quarters alleging that the Honourable Supervising Minister for Education, Chief Nyesom Wike, has resigned his position as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The party wishes to state that the minister has not resigned his membership of the Federal Executive Council and has not at the moment contemplated doing so. He remains the Supervisory Minister for Education.The PDP therefore calls on its members and the general public to discountenance this concocted, false, misleading and calumnious speculation, which we are aware, is a creation by mischief makers and enemies of the minister and the party.”
It further warned members of the party not to be deceived by falsehood from political opponents, particularly the All Progressives Congress.
