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.

“This time demands the unity of all our leaders in order to keep our political rivals, who are facing extinction, from importing their crises into our party.

“The PDP remains one indivisible family and our members are on alert and will continue to resist every attempt by external forces to divide our ranks at this critical time.”
