The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory and former Governor of Rivers State, HE Nyesom Wike, has called on the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party to suspend the party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Wike, a Chieftain of the PDP also stressed that the likes of Sule Lamido and Aminu Tambuwal must be suspended as a matter of urgency.
He made this known during an interview with Channels Television on Thursday, where he stated that Nigerians needed to congratulate him and the G5 Governors for fighting for justice, equity and fairness.
He said, “I’m calling on the National Working Committee of the party to, as a matter of urgency, suspend the presidential candidate of the party, suspend Aminu Tambuwal, suspend Sule Lamido …”
Asked why he thinks he shouldn’t be suspended too, Wike added, “They know I didn’t do anything wrong. They should be congratulating us for fighting for equity, fairness and justice… ”
When asked if he was not fighting against the will of the party, Wike responded saying the party was fighting against the will of Nigerians.
“Is the party not against Nigerians? Who is superior? Is the party superior to Nigerians?
“There is a Constitution. But because you think you have the power, you don’t want to follow the Constitution.
“They think they can do anything without anybody which they know is not possible. You can’t succeed,” he further stated.
