Deputy Senate Minority Leader: Wike’s Case With The PDP Not Unique
… Says these things happen
By PHC Telegraph
A high ranking PDP Senator Lere Oyewumi has reacted sharply in defence of the former Governor of Rivers State, Barrister Nyesom Wike, saying what has happened between him and his party is not unique.
Oyewumi who is the Deputy Minority Leader of the Senate said in a chat with Channels Television in Osun State that what is currently playing out in other political parties show the PDP is not the only political platform that undergoing a phase of disagreements.
“This issue is not only a PDP issue. Somebody suspended Senator Rabiu Kwakwanso from the NNPP a few days ago. Those that suspended him were also suspended by some of his own colleagues.
“Observe what happened to the National Chairman and National Secretary of the APC, the organisation that produced the President; they were fired immediately after the President’s inauguration”, tOyewumi noted.
Apparently arguing that there could possibly be an attempt to blow matters out of proportion, the Senator pointed out, “all sides are involved in the problem. There will be some volatility after you vote in the general election”, Oyewumi noted.
Oyewumi however said that he was comfortable with the responsible manner with which Wike on one hand and leaders of the party on the other are skilfully handling the issue.
“Nyesom Wike is one of our well-known leaders. In Rivers State, he performed amazingly well in the most recent general election.
