The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Atiku Abubakar campaign has claimed that Nyesom Wike, the minister of the Federal Capital Territory, cannot avoid expulsion from the main opposition party.
Atiku’s Director of Research, Strategy, and Documentation, Don Pedro Obaseki, claimed that Wike deserved to be fired because of his recent call for Atiku’s expulsion from the PDP, as well as his numerous complaints about the party and his repeated betrayals.
He asserts that the former governor of Rivers State was responsible for the PDP’s entire internal problem.
Obaseki stated, “Wike [is] the problem of the PDP and to expel Wike now is a task that must be done by the PDP.” Obaseki was speaking to journalists in Abuja on Monday.
He was reacting to Wike’s recent call for the PDP to expel the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku, and some party chieftains, Aminu Tambuwal and Sule Lamido.
“The person who deserves to be expelled from the party is the man who is calling for the expulsion of others from the party,” Obaseki added.
“Wike is the one who created a cult within the party and called it the G-5. Against the will, constitution and structures of the party, he campaigned against the party.
“If anybody had done anything anti-party, it is Nyesom Wike. He has fought every known person within the party.
“Wike has crossed the red line and now, he should be ready. 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 roughshod over the party.”
