The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike challenges the PDP to punish him.

Barely 24 hours after Kola Ologbodiyan, former National Publicity Secretary publicly admitted that PDP Governors contributed to some of the appointments that are being made by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the FCT Minister, Barr. Nyesom Wike has said the PDP has no capacity to throw him out.

Wike who appeared Wednesday on “Politics Today”, broadcast by Channels Television declared that no one in the PDP has the ability to deal with him over his decision to firmly support the emergence of a southern president and his acceptance of the offer to serve in President Tinubu’s government.

He noted that as governor, his state produced a governor, three Senators, 11 out of 13 House of Representatives members and 32 State House of Assembly members.

“Who will discipline me?”, Wike asked while responding to a question put to him by Seun Okinbaloye, the anchor of the programme.

“I should be the one calling for the discipline of these people who violated the party’s constitution”, he pointed out.

Wike observed that the power rotation principle enshrined in the constitution of the party was never respected.

“Who will suspend me?”, Wike asked again, “I want to dare anybody. We are just waiting for the presidential panel to finish” its assignment.

“You will know who actually are those who are working well for the party”, the former governor stressed.

Offering further explanation, Wike queried how anybody could talk about expelling him from the PDP.

He asked if they were talking about someone who led “A state that brought a governor? A state that brought three senators? A state that produced 32 House of Assembly members? A state that produced 11 out of 13 House of Representatives members?

Continuing, he said, “The person that would suspend me is the one that couldn’t produce a governor, is the one that couldn’t produce three senators?

“I have not seen that person, with all due respect. Nobody will do it. So, the issue of they will do it does not arise.”

The former governor of Rivers State said he duly informed the leadership of the PDP of his intention before he took up the ministerial offer of President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress.

Wike reiterated that he is still a PDP chieftain despite working for the APC government.

As he put it, “I want to support Asiwaju to finish well.”
