‘We’re not afraid of him’ – PDP clears air on Wike’s membership status

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has put to rest the speculation that the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike has defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

DAILY POST reports that Wike, a former presidential aspirant in the main opposition party, was rumoured to have dumped his party for APC.

The speculation began when the former Rivers State Governor was appointed by President Bola Tinubu to serve in the APC government as the FCT Minster.

Clearing the air on Monday, Debo Ologunagba, PDP National Publicity Secretary, said Wike remains a member of the party, stressing that the minister is yet to resign his membership.

Asked if the party is afraid of suspending the former governor, the PDP spokesman said in an interview with Channels TV that “the answer in one word is no. Nobody is afraid of Wike”.

He added, “Membership of a political party is personal. Nyesom Wike has not resigned from PDP to the best of my knowledge.

“Wike has been a great member of this party. We had challenges before the general elections, which of course, is expected in politics.

“But that doesn’t mean that he is not a member of the party because he has not resigned. From the record that I have, Wike is still a member of the party.

“What is more important is the capacity of the party to reconcile itself. We know we have the capacity as a party to reconcile and bring everyone that has been aggrieved one way or the other because of this country.

“We need a party like PDP to help stabilize Nigeria. The APC has lost it. They have no vision, no direction.”....CONTINUE.FULL.READING>>>
