Chief Dele Momodu, a Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has asked former Rivers state Governor Nyesome Wike who has claimed that nobody can suspend him from PDP if he “has become the sole owner of PDP that he cannot be disciplined by a 24-year old political party.”
Recall that Nyesome Wike who is now the FCT Minister had appeared on Channels Television on Thursday said even though he is a minister under the Tinubu led APC government, he remains a PDP member and dared the party to suspend him. But Mr Momodu in a statement shared with newsmen said “it would have been nice to know if he founded the party or when he acquired majority shares in it since he now has more money than ALIKO DANGOTE.”
Mr Momodu in his statement asked the former governor to quote the portion of the PDP Constitution that says power must come to the South.
The statement reads in part; “He should tell the world the Chairman of the Zoning Committee that threw the contest open to all zones of the party and why he agreed to buy the Presidential nomination form.
“When did WIKE become the Champion of the South; was it after his bid to be Vice President to ALHAJI ATIKU ABUBAKAR was rejected or after requests to handpick the juiciest Ministerial portfolios, like the ones he got from ASIWAJU BOLA TINUBU, were rebuffed. Would he have continued to flagrantly badmouth ALHAJI ATIKU ABUBAKAR if he had selected him as his runningmate?
“WIKE and four other Governors were parading themselves as G5 while frolicking from Nigeria to Europe and back. Three of them from Benue, Enugu and Abia lost their Senatorial bids, spectacularly and resoundingly. SEUN should have asked WIKE, where are the other “suicide bombers” today? Gone with the wind. The G5 was always about one man’s ego and ambition.
“WIKE claimed, contentiously, that he delivered Rivers State to TINUBU, only one state out of six in the South/South region. Was that enough to justify all this grandiloquent vituperation by Nigeria’s co-President, WIKE? His three acolytes couldn’t deliver and they’ve since been abandoned in the lurch!! What happened to their regular joint press conferences?
“WIKE claims all PDP Governors sent Ministerial nominations to TINUBU. He should tell us how many of them were eventually approved, except the one he handpicked from a neighboring state. WIKE forgot to recommend any member of the G5. No nominee of GOVERNOR SEYI MAKINDE was visible on the Ministerial list…
“WIKE seems to know more about the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal verdict ahead of the rest of us by saying on television that he and his people are only waiting for PEPT to finish, in order to unleash a reign of one party state on Nigeria. His mission is very clear, collapse PDP and hand over its remnants to APC, as long as he remains the co-President of TINUBU and allowed to go all out on his vengeful mission.
“WIKE is obviously a poor student of history, he would have seen the deadend ahead. Barely three months ago, PRESIDENT BUHARI was the Alpha & Omega of APC. His word was Law. Where’s he today… All the blames for the FAILURE of Nigeria are being heaped on him. His most fastidiously loyal men, EFCC’s BAWA and Central Bank’s EMEFIELE are already in TINUBU’s gulag, indefinitely. BUHARI must be wondering how quickly he’s been thrown under the bus… Truth is, as they say in America, that is how the COOKIE crumbles.”
