Defiant Wike Challenges PDP: Try Suspending Me If You Dare!

In a bold declaration, Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has thrown down the gauntlet at his own party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), daring them to suspend or reprimand him.

Speaking exclusively on Channels Television’s Politics Today program, Wike scoffed at the idea of any party leader having the nerve to suspend or expel him.

“Who’s going to bring me to heel? It’s me who should be demanding accountability for those who flouted the party’s constitution, especially in matters of rotational leadership,” Wike asserted passionately.

He issued a direct challenge, “Name the one who will suspend me. I double dare anyone.”

Despite his affiliation with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) led by President Bola Tinubu, Wike proudly affirmed his status as a PDP stalwart. “I’m here to back Asiwaju (Tinubu) all the way,” he declared with conviction.

A pivotal figure within the PDP and a member of the influential G5 group, Wike remained unapologetic for his support of power transition to southern Nigeria.

He hinted at future revelations, saying, “We’re awaiting the results of the presidential panel, and then you’ll truly see who’s been steering the party right.”

With a hint of irony, Wike challenged those who might seek his expulsion, “Can you believe they’re talking about kicking me out? This is the state that produced a governor, not to mention three senators. We’re talking about a state that sent 32 House of Assembly members and a staggering 11 out of 13 House of Representatives members!”

In a parting shot, Wike left no doubt about his stance, “The person who could barely secure a governor’s seat or even three senators is the same person who’s supposed to suspend me? I’m yet to meet that individual, with all due respect. It’s just not happening. So, let’s put that notion to rest.”
