PDP Crisis: I would have expelled Wike – Dele Momodu gives reason


A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dele Momodu, on Tuesday said he would have expelled the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike if he had the powers.

Momodu said Wike was trying to destroy the former ruling party, hence should be expelled.

Speaking on Channels Television’s Political Paradigm programme, Momodu said: “I don’t have the power, if I had power I would have fired him (Wike) long ago.”

The Director of Strategic Communications for the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, described Wike as unruly.

He added: “Such an unruly person who wants to destroy our party? One individual cannot hold everybody to ransom.

“If we fought the military, we fought the military in this country, Tinubu was part of those who fought the military in this country, and then you will now allow a civilian dictatorship?”

Wike has been at loggerheads with PDP’s leadership prior to the 2023 presidential election.

The minister had worked against PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar while favouring President Bola Tinubu.

Recently, Wike declared that nobody within the PDP can expel him from the party.
