Dele Momodu slams Wike as a “civilian dictator” on national TV.



Dele Momodu, who serves as the director of strategic communications for the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, strongly criticized Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), for his actions during the 2023 general election.

During an interview on ChannelsTV on Tuesday, Momodu didn’t mince his words when he referred to Wike as behaving like a civilian dictator.

In his role as a prominent figure in the media, Momodu went on to express his strong disapproval of Wike’s actions and stated that if he had the authority, he would have removed Wike from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) without hesitation.

Furthermore, Momodu accused Wike of actively undermining and damaging the PDP, the political party they both belong to.

He candidly admitted, “I may not possess the power to take such actions, but if I did, I would have relieved him (Wike) of his duties a long time ago.”

“Such an unruly person who wants to destroy our party? One individual cannot hold everybody to ransom. If we fought the military, we fought the military in this country. Tinubu was part of those who fought the military in this country, and then you will now allow a civilian dictatorship?”

ThePressNG recalls that ahead of the 2023 elections, Wike and other four then governors that made up the G-5 in the PDP withdrew their support for the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

The former Rivers state governor supported the eventual winner of the election, Tinubu, who rewarded him with an appointment as FCT Minister.

In a recent interview, Wike said nobody within the PDP could discipline him.

“Who will discipline me? I should be the one calling for the discipline of these people who violated the party’s constitution, in the way that the party supported rotation,” Wike said.
