The State Party Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah in a statement said the party is aggrieved the more, knowing the close relationship that existed between Gov Wike and his late uncle.
It's however consoled, the statement noted, because Gov Wike did all within his ability to give meaning to the strong bond between him and his uncle while he lived.
The party said it hopes Gov Wike, being a strong believer in God will see his uncle's death as the will of his Creator and continues to carry out his official duties with the usual composure and emotional stability which he is known for.
“While we whole-heartedly identify with His Excellency in his moment of grief as our leader and big brother, we also make bold to say that his well cherished uncle did not die in vain having contributed in raising one of the most courageous leaders, and defender of democracy Nigeria has ever had in the person of Gov Nyesom Wike”, the party declared.
The State PDP also condoled with the entire Wike family, government and entire Rivers people, enjoining all to take solace in the good works and worthy legacies left behind by late Chief Charles Wike.
“May the good Lord grant the Soul of the deceased peaceful rest and to his numerous relations, the fortitude to bear the huge loss”, the party prayed.
