A member of the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party and Deputy National Youth Leader of the party, Timothy Osadolor, has said the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, is no more a member of the party.
Osadolor, who stated this while reacting to Wike’s body language towards the party, said the actions of the former Rivers State Governor indicate that he is no longer a party member.
He said, “The truth is that Wike has technically left the PDP. When last did you see him in any PDP function? Even the crisis he is having in his state is because of the structure of the party and the loyalty of party leaders. You can also see the relationship between him and his governor.
“His anti-party activities are part of the problem he is having with his governor. So, if from his state he cannot function in the party, and at the NWC level, he cannot function, you don’t need any news to know that the man is out of the party.
“To say that Wike is no longer a member of the party, especially when he has also claimed leadership of the APC in his state, is just over-flogging what is already obvious. No matter how he continues to say that he is a member of the PDP, the reality on the ground and his actions state something else.
“I think Nigerians should not take him too seriously because the man is given to double-speak. Wike has left the party, and that is the truth.
“In Rivers, for example, there can only be one leader of the party, and that is the state governor. For us, the governor has given us assurances that he can manage the affairs of the party in the state, and that is what we know and believe as a party.”
