FCT Minister Nyesom Wike Dares PDP to Expel Him Over Anti-party Activities

Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has issued a challenge to his political party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), daring them to expel him. Speaking on Channels Television’s “Politics Today” program, Wike confidently expressed that no one within the PDP possesses the authority to expel him from the party.

Responding to speculation of potential expulsion due to alleged anti-party activities, Wike staunchly asserted, “Nobody can expel me.” He emphasized his standing by highlighting that he has not encountered any PDP leader with the power to carry out such an action against him.

Wike, who previously served as the governor of Rivers State, elaborated that the only circumstance under which someone might attempt to suspend him would be if he failed to deliver crucial party positions, including a governor, three senators, and assembly members. He maintained that no one would be able to discipline him for his actions, suggesting that those who violated the party’s constitution should be subject to discipline.

Referring to the internal party dynamics, Wike criticized those who allegedly breached the party’s rules, particularly the principle of rotation. He questioned the credibility of anyone who would consider suspending him while highlighting his commitment to President Bola Tinubu’s aspirations, not the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Wike clarified his role by stating, “I am not working for the APC. I am working for Tinubu who has trust in me to help him deliver the Renewed Hope.” He further indicated that he owed no apologies for his actions, as he has a history of working with different political figures, including Ahmed Bola Tinubu.

He also reaffirmed his commitment to restoring the FCT master plan, regardless of potential opposition. He criticized affluent individuals residing in violation of the master plan and noted that his administration’s priority was to uphold the rules governing the FCT’s urban development.
