Wike Moves To Expel Atiku, Tambuwal From PDP

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike has called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to suspend its 2023 presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar from the party.

He also urged the PDP to suspend former Sokoto State Governor, Waziri Tambuwal who served as the Director General of the PDP Presidential Campaign in 2023.

Wike who made the call on Thursday during an interview on a Channels Television political programme, Politis Today blamed both men and others like them for the loss of the party in the 2023 presidential election.

According to him, the PDP lost because some of its members and its presidential candidate refused to honour the principle of justice and fairness.

He added that expelling such people is necessary for rebuilding the party.

“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),” he said.

Gists9ja however, recalls that Wike and others popularly known as the G5 refused to work for the PDP in the 2023 elections over claims that the party’s presidential ticket should not have gone to the north.
