The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said its silence is not a weakness over the open romance between former Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Naija News reports that while the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, has refused to comment on the issue, a party leader who spoke to Vanguard anonymously said the party would act at the appropriate time.
Wike’s case of anti-party activity took an unexpected turn on Tuesday after being named as a member of APC‘s campaign council for the 2023 Governorship Elections for Bayelsa, Kogi and Imo States.
This is despite the fact that his party, on August 2nd, 2023, named him as a member of its National Campaign Council for the same set of elections.
The party source said it would not make PDP all about Wike and his unending tantrums because he loves attention.
The PDP leader added that the party would take a stand on Wike’s case after the Presidential Election Tribunal Judgement.
The source said, “We don’t want to make our party all about Wike and his unending tantrums.
“We are all aware about his love for attention so we’ve decided to ignore him in the hope he will avail himself of the opportunity of our efforts to reconcile aggrieved members.
“While we are open to reconciling, I don’t see the party turning a blind eye to his numerous infractions when the Presidential Election Petition Court gives its judgement on our pending case before it.
“This is the same man who went to court to get an injunction restraining the party from suspending, expelling or taking action against him for his open infringement of our party’s constitution.
“It is now clear for every one to see that his insistence on remaining on our party register as member is simply to do the bidding of the ruling party.
“This cannot continue, something has to give and I’m sure as soon as the election tribunal concludes its assignment our party will take a definite stand.”
