Drama As Wike Starts Campaign To Suspend Atiku, Tambuwal From PDP


Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike has initiated a call on the National Working Committee, NWC of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to suspend the presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar and former governor of Sokoto State, Senator Aminu Tambuwal from the party.

Wike spoke in an interview on Channels Television programme, Politis Today on Thursday where he dismissed former PDP presidential aspirant, Dele Momodu as a man of insignificant political capacity who he said cannot win anything in his local government.


Wike spoke in reaction to the outcome of the PEPT judgment that gave victory to President Bola Tinubu describing the pronunciation of the appeal court jurists as profound and laced with technical and practical assertions..

Asked if the judgment betrayed the will of the people, Wike said:

“The will of the people is determined through the ballot box. How could PDP have won the election when you consider the mood of the nation at that time?


“Look at the areas that the PDP did not win because of high-handedness, because of greed because of impunity.. If the PDP had done what they were supposed to do, then you could have talked about that.

“There should be equity, there should be justice, there should be fairness and that is why I am calling on the National Working Committee they should suspend the presidential candidate, suspend people like Aminu Tambuwal so that they can rebuild the party (PDP).”

GWG.ng reports that Wike and Tambuwal were once a tag team and combined vainly against Atiku in the 2018 presidential primaries of the PDP and hence the irony of the call from Wike to suspend him.
