Nobody is afraid of Wike – PDP


The Peoples Democratic Party has quashed speculations regarding the purported defection of the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, to the ruling All Progressives Congress.

Amid swirling rumors suggesting Wike’s departure from the main opposition party to the APC, he accepted appointment from President Bola Tinubu to serve in the APC government as the FCT Minister.

Addressing the matter on Monday, Debo Ologunagba, PDP National Publicity Secretary, affirmed that Wike remains a steadfast member of the party.

He emphasized that the minister has not tendered his resignation from the party.

In response to queries about potential action against the former governor, Ologunagba clarified in an interview with Channels TV that “the answer in one word is no. Nobody is afraid of Wike.”

Acknowledging past challenges within the party preceding general elections, Ologunagba underscored the importance of party unity and reconciliation efforts.

“Membership of a political party is personal. Nyesom Wike has not resigned from PDP to the best of my knowledge.

“Wike has been a great member of this party. We had challenges before the general elections, which of course, is expected in politics.

“But that doesn’t mean that he is not a member of the party because he has not resigned. From the record that I have, Wike is still a member of the party.

“What is more important is the capacity of the party to reconcile itself. We know we have the capacity as a party to reconcile and bring everyone that has been aggrieved one way or the other because of this country.

“We need a party like PDP to help stabilize Nigeria. The APC has lost it. They have no vision, no direction.”
