However, the PDP leader and publisher of Ovation Magazine did not object to President Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) leader who appointed Wike to the position of minister.
When asked about Wike’s anti-PDP behavior, Momodu responded, “I don’t have the power, if I had the power, I would have fired him (Wike) long ago.”
Momodu responded to the justification for his expulsion by asking, “Such an unruly guy who wants to harm our party? No one person may demand ransom for everyone else. If we fought the military in this nation—Tinubu was one of those who participated in that fight—and you’re going to allow a civilian dictatorship now?
In the run-up to the 2023 elections, Wike and the other four governors collectively known as the G-5 dropped their support for Atiku Abubakar, the party’s nominee for president, due to differences about power sharing within the PDP.
The former governor of the Rivers state backed Tinubu, who won the election and appointed him as the FCT Minister in return.
Wike’s expulsion from the PDP has been demanded by some party leaders, but the minister recently dared the party bosses to suspend or punish him.
