PDP Will Not Only Suspend, But Expel Wike – Atiku’s Aide Bwala Warns
A former spokesperson for the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Council in the 2023 presidential poll, Daniel Bwala, has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), will expel the former Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, at the right time.
Bwala said this while reacting to Wike’s recent comment where the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) dared the PDP to suspend him from the party.
According to Bwala, the party will not only suspend Wike but will have him expelled from PDP when the time comes.
Bwala stated this while appearing live on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme on Thursday night.
Wike has been in battle against his party after he ‘supported’ the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, against PDP’s Atiku Abubakar in the 2023 election.
Wike’s support for Tinubu is said to have earned him the ministerial position he is occupying.
Speaking, however, on the FCT Minister’s statement earlier, Bwala said: “Why we hardly react to what he (Wike) says is because he loves drama, everybody knows that.
“The quietness of the party is not weakness. The party knows what it is doing. At the appropriate time, he (Wike) would not only be suspended but expelled. Take that to the bank.”
The PDP chieftain said though Wike has the capacity to develop the FCT, he is a “glorified commissioner” who should not arrogate the power of a state governor to himself.
Bwala also said among the 45 ministers of the President, Wike has proven to be the most effective but warned the FCT minister not to embark on a revenge mission on opponents in the nation’s capital by threatening to demolish their structures.
The PDP chieftain said the minister cannot terrorize residents of the FCT by threatening to demolish structures in places outside Abuja’s original Master Plan.
The lawyer claimed that the Aso Rock and many military barracks were not originally captured in the FCT Master Plan and the minister should first demolish those buildings before “terrorizing” Abuja residents with demolition threats.
