Wike Challenges PDP to Suspend Him



Nyesom Wike, who previously served as the governor of Rivers State and is currently the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has openly challenged his own party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to either suspend him or impose disciplinary measures on him.

Wike made these remarks during an interview on Wednesday on the Channels Television’s Politics Today program.

It’s worth noting that Wike, originally from Rivers State, recently took office as the FCT minister. He assumed this role within the government led by President Bola Tinubu, a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to Wike, he informed PDP leadership before he took the ministerial offer of President Tinubu.

Wike, however, boasted that he has not seen any PDP chieftain that will suspend him from the party.

When asked “Are you afraid that your party might move against you or expel you?”

Wike replied: “Who is the party?Who are the PDP people? How can anybody talk about expelling me? A State that brought a governor, a State that brought three senators, a state that produced 32 members out of 32 House of Assembly and produced 11 out of 13 House of Reps.

“The person that would suspend me is the one that couldn’t produce a governor, is the one that couldn’t produce senators and Assembly?

“Look, I have not seen that person with all due respect. I should be the one calling for their discipline for violating the party’s constitution.”
