The Director of Research and Documentation of the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organization, Don Pedro Obaseki, has declared that it is time to sanction the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike.
KOKO TV NGreports that Obaseki, in a statement released on Tuesday, questioned the audacity of Wike in calling for the expulsion of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the February 25th election, Atiku Abubakar.
Obaseki said the former governor of Rivers State has unleashed chaos, and PDP will not sit back and watch him ride on them and most Nigerians as he did in the past.
He also noted that Wike is not a PDP member, stressing he openly campaigned against the party during the last election.
The PDP chieftain also challenged Wike to publish his bank account when he assumed office as a governor and after his eight years tenure as the governor of Rivers State.
The statement reads, “Wike coming out to ask for the expulsion of the number one leader of the party and the presidential flagbearer of the party and the recipient of the mandate of the Nigerian people as declared in INEC’s submission that we won 21 states and asking Atiku to be expelled from the party, Wike has crossed the red line and now, he should be ready.
“He has all the money to fight us back because we are coming at him like a thousand bricks.
“He has unleashed the dogs of war and we will not sit back and watch him ride rough over the party and majority of Nigerians like he did for eight years over the humility of the Rivers people. That can no longer suffice.
“Wike is a member of the APC, a sitting Minister of an APC government. Wike openly campaigned against the PDP. You see, by their fruits, we shall know them. By all intents and purposes, Wike is not a member of the PDP.
“If you remember clearly, just a few months to the election, Barrister Nyesom Wike, then the governor of Rivers State ran to the court to get an injunction to preclude and stop the PDP from expelling him from the party.
“If he was so untouchable and bigger than the entire party machinery, why did he do that? Whether we like it or not, Wike is Satan lieutenant.
Maybe that is what reduced the propensity of the leaders of the party to do the needful. And because many of them are doves-men of peace (not everyone is a hawk-like Wike), let us see whether he would come around. PDP is not a party of brigands.”
