I dare anyone in PDP to suspend me - Wike

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has dared the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to suspend him from the party.

In a fresh interview with Channels TV, the former Rivers state governor said he cannot be expelled from PDP because is working for President Bola Tinubu and not the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“How can anybody talk about expelling me? A state that provided the Governor? A State that brought three Senators? A State that produced 32 Assembly members? A State that produced 11 out of 13 House of Reps. The person that wants to suspend me is the one that couldn’t produce a Governor or three Senators or Assembly. I’ve not seen that person that will suspend me in PDP. Nobody will do it.

Who will discipline me? I should be the one calling for discipline for those who violated the party’s constitution on rotation. I want to dare anyone who will say I should be suspended. I’m a man of character.

I wrote to my party about my nomination, and they replied that i should accept it. Forget about their rantings, they are all regretting their actions, and that’s what led the party to what it is today. I worked in favour of justice, equity and fairness.

God supports the action we’ve taken to support President Tinubu. Some APC members are not happy that I’m FCT minister. At my level, do I need to play game? Why will you put my name? I’m still a member of PDP. I’m not a kid, if i want to play a role, I will. I’m not a member of APC.”
