The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has stated that it would soon respond to statements credited to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, about the opposition party.
Wike, who was recently named the FCT Minister by President Bola Tinubu, had stated that the party cannot sanction him because of his acceptance to serve in the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government.
The former River State Governor claimed that the party’s leadership at various levels asked him to accept Tinubu’s nomination.
Speaking during a recent appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today, the Minister said he had yet to see the person who would expel him from the party.
He said, “Governance is not about party. The party is a vehicle that conveys you. I’m a PDP member, unrepentant.
“I never hid my intention. As a PDP member, I came out to support fairness, equity, and justice. I feel at home working for the government of Tinubu. He is a man who means well for the country.
“I’m not here to work for a party. I’m here to support the President who has confidence in me. I owe nobody an apology.”
Asked if he wasn’t concerned about possible suspension, Wike responded, saying, “How can anybody talk about expelling me? With all due respect, I have not seen that person. Nobody will do it. So the issue that they will do it does not arise
“Who will discipline me? I should be the one calling for the discipline of people who violated the party’s constitution on rotation,” he added.
Reacting in a telephone conversation with The PUNCH, the PDP spokesman, Debo Ologunagba, said the party will address the issues very soon.
He said, “As a party, we will address the issue very soon. We heard what was said, and we are taking our time to react. I can assure you that as soon as we are ready, we will make our response public.”
