The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Mr Nyesom Wike has bragged that no persons or party chieftain can suspend him from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Wike made this claim during an interview on Channels Television stating that governance is not about membership of a political party.
The former governor of Rivers State was asked if it was right for him to take an appointment in an APC-led government and replied that he became the FCT Minister to support President Tinubu’s administration and not as a political party member.
His words: “Governance is not about party. Party is a vehicle that conveys you. I’m a PDP member — unrepentant.
“I never hid my intention. As a PDP member, I came out to support fairness, equity, and justice.
“I feel at home working for the government of President Tinubu. He is a man, who means well for the country.
“I’m not here to work for a party. I’m here to support the president, who has confidence in me. I owe nobody an apology.”
He was also asked if he was afraid that the PDP could suspend him, Wike queried whether there was anyone in the party, who could suspend him.
“How can anybody talk about expelling me? With all due respect, I have not seen that person. Nobody will do it. So, the issue that they will do it does not arise.
“Who will discipline me? I should be the one calling for the discipline of people, who violated the party’s constitution on rotation of offices.”
