Nyesom Wike should be disciplined by the party, according to Dr. Pedro Obaseki, Director of Research and Documentation for the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council.
He labeled the former governor of Rivers state, who was part of a group of five governors that engaged in a number of anti-party offenses against the PDP on February 25, as a serial traitor in a statement released on Tuesday.
According to the statement, Wike has crossed the line and now needs to be prepared after calling for the expulsion of Atiku from the party, who is the party’s top leader, presidential flagbearer, and recipient of the mandate of the Nigerian people as stated in INEC’s submission that we won 21 states.
“We are coming at him like a ton of bricks, and he has all the money to fight us back. He has let out the battle dogs, and we won’t just watch as he rides rough over the party and the majority of Nigerians, as he did for eight years over the humility of the Rivers people. That is no longer adequate.
“Wike is an APC member and a minister in an APC-led administration. Wike publicly ran an anti-PDP campaign. You see, we will recognize them based on their fruits. Wike is not technically a PDP member, to all intents and purposes.
If you recall correctly, Barrister Nyesom Wike—at the time the governor of Rivers State—ran to court just a few months before the election to request an injunction to prevent the PDP from exiling him from the party.
“Why did he do that if he was bigger than the entire party apparatus and untouchable? Wike is a representative of Satan.
“Perhaps this decreased the leaders of the party’s predisposition to take the necessary action. Let’s see if he would change his mind as many of them are peacemakers (doves) rather than hawks like Wike. A gang of brigands is not the PDP.
