I Am Still A Member Of The Main Opposition Party-Wike




Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has stated that he is still a member of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The FCT minister who spoke with a cross-section of journalists on Friday, March 14, stated that he is an advocate of the rule of law and his non-support of the party in the 2023 presidential election was the right step and thus moves for his suspension are uncalled for.

There have been calls from different quarters for the suspension of Wike who is currently serving in the ruling party.

Wike said;

“I am a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Have you ever seen me change anything?

“The one I supported before, what happened? I have decided to take a break. As you see me now, everybody should carry their cross. I was in PDP and I did not hide it: I told them I was not going to support their presidential candidate. Is it that I spoke or acted in a way people did not understand?

“Discipline me for what? That I did what? I am an advocate of the party’s constitution. Assuming we lost the governorship, will they be talking about Rivers as a PDP state?”

Furthermore, Wike stated that what he has in mind is to carry out his assignment as FCT Minister.

He added;

“Now is the time for governance. Now is the time to do your assignment. The president has given me an assignment and I am busy carrying out my assignment. When the time for politics comes, we would know who is where and who is not where.”
