Wike Challenges: “I Dare Anyone in PDP to Suspend Me”

The former governor of Rivers State and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Mr Nyesom Wike, has dismissed the possibility of being suspended from his party. In an interview on Channels Television, he stated that he has not encountered any party leader who has the authority to sanction him.

He also argued that governance is not dependent on political affiliation. He explained that he accepted the FCT portfolio to support the administration of President Bola Tinubu, regardless of their party differences.

His words: “Governance is not about party. Party is a vehicle that conveys you. I’m a PDP member — unrepentant.

“I never hid my intention. As a PDP member, I came out to support fairness, equity, and justice.

“I feel at home working for the government of President Tinubu. He is a man, who means well for the country.

“I’m not here to work for a party. I’m here to support the president, who has confidence in me. I owe nobody an apology.”

When asked if he was afraid that the PDP could suspend him, Wike queried whether there was anyone in the party, who could suspend him.

“How can anybody talk about expelling me? With all due respect, I have not seen that person. Nobody will do it. So, the issue that they will do it does not arise.

“Who will discipline me? I should be the one calling for the discipline of people, who violated the party’s constitution on rotation of offices.”
