The immediate past Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has insisted that he is still a Chieftain of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and he did not regret serving as minister in the government of the President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC)
Wike is currently the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), one of the presidential kitchen cabinet positions.
Wike, who featured on Channels TV Politics Today, said: “I am not working for APC. I am working for Tinubu who have trust in me to help him deliver the renewed hope renewed agenda.
“I owe nobody any apology at all. I was in PDP and I worked for Ahmed Bola Tinubu to become the President of Nigeria.”
He stressed that no body in the PDP has the gut , to suspend or discipline him.
He said: “who will discipline me? I should be the one calling for the discipline of these people who violated the party’s constitution, in the way that the party supported rotation.
“Who will suspend me? I want to dare anybody.”
The ex-governor said that he informed PDP leadership before he took the ministerial offer of President Tinubu, stressing that he remained a PDP chieftain despite working for the APC government.
“I want to support Asiwaju (Tinubu) to finish well.”
He stressed also that he owed no one an apology for supporting power shift to southern Nigeria.
“We are just waiting for the presidential panel to finish, you will know who actually are those who are working well for the party.
“How can anybody talk about expelling me? A state that brought a governor? A state that brought three senators? A state that produced 32 House of Assembly members? A state that produced 11 out of 13 House of Representatives.
“The person that would suspend me is the one that couldn’t produce a governor, is the one that couldn’t produce three senators?
“I have not seen that person, with all due respect. Nobody will do it. So, the issue of they will do it does not arise.”
