“Should Atiku Call Tinubu to Remove Wike as FCT Minister, He Will be Sacked” – Bwala Reveals

Tinubu Obi and Atiku

According to Daniel Bwala, the spokesperson for Atiku Abubakar, who is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 presidential election, he believes that if Atiku were to request Bola Ahmed Tinubu to remove Nyesom Wike from his position as the FCT minister, Wike would swiftly lose his position.

Bwala expressed this viewpoint during his appearance on Arise TV on a Tuesday evening. He stated, “If Atiku Abubakar were to make a call to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, asking him to dismiss Nyesom Wike as the FCT minister, I believe that Wike would be removed from office before the call even concludes.”

He was responding to a question about how the PDP is feeling given that Wike, a prominent member of the party, is openly working for the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and the recent loss at the presidential election tribunal.

Bwala responded by suggesting that the tribunal’s judgment had left many unanswered questions.

He said residents of the FCT have demanded separate governance and representation since the tribunal’s ruling recognised the FCT as a distinct entity, and have sought a court order to prevent the FCT minister from continuing to represent himself as such.

Bwala said that the PDP has survived many challenges in the past and will survive this one as well. He also said that Wike have violated the rules of the party and will be sacked at the right moment.

Wike was the runner-up in the PDP presidential primary and has been critical of Atiku since then.
