Dele Momodu and Nyesom Wike
Ace journalist and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dele Momodu, has called on the party to punish the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, for antiparty activities.
Recall that while he was Governor of Rivers, Wike worked against the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, and supported President Bola Tinuhu in winning the 2023 presidential election.
Wike, who had emphasised his stand to remain in PDP, had boasted that the party leadership couldn’t sanction him for allegedly subverting the party.
The former Governor of Rivers State even accepted the position of a minister in Tinubu’s government, against the party’s doings.
Recently, some 27 members of the Rivers State House of Assembly loyal to Wike left the PDP for the APC over the political impasse in the state.
Speaking in an interview on Arise News on Wednesday, Momodu said the PDP leadership cannot continue to tolerate Wike’s excesses and must stop his antics.
The PDP chieftain said that if he had the power to be in charge of the party, he would have sanctioned Wike long ago.
Momodu said the PDP leadership must have its reasons for keeping him while he continues to trouble the party.
He said: “If I had the power, I would have punished Wike long ago. The PDP leadership must have its reasons for keeping him while he continues to trouble the party.
“He wants to eat his cake and have it.”
