Why PDP is yet to sanction Wike

Kola Ologbondiyan, ex-National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has explained the party’s reluctance to take firm disciplinary measures against Nyesom Wike.

Wike was a former presidential aspirant in the 2023 elections and is now the current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike.

His appointment by president Tinubu had stirred controversy within the party, sparking speculation about his potential alignment with the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Despite these, the PDP has chosen not to take immediate disciplinary actions against the former Governor of Rivers State.

Ologbondiyan, in his media statement, emphasized that the party is diligently following its established protocols.

“There’s a disciplinary committee whose responsibility it is to look extensively into the situation before deciding whether or not to sanction the FCT minister,” he explained, emphasizing that the party operates under a strict constitution that governs its internal affairs.

He said, “Let me start by saying that the constitution of the party provides for how the party should be managed. That has been clear from the onset. The responsibility of the day-to-day running of the party lies in the office of the national chairman.

“So in respect of the minister of the FCT, Nysom Wike, it’s about disciplinary action. And I can recall that under the leadership of Secondus, when the former Governor of Ebonyi State, (Dave) Umahi, started relating with the APC, a letter was written to him in form of a query and issued to him to explain to the party why he was rallying with the APC.

“So the constitution of the party provides for disciplinary measures. It’s not a mob. Somebody can’t rise from somewhere and carry wood and say ‘You are responsible for this and that.’

“So the purview of sanctioning is with the current working committee to consider your action this way or that. The party also has a disciplinary committee where matters of this nature are addressed.”
