Given his behavior before, during, and after the 2023 general elections, Timothy Osadolor, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party’s National Executive Committee, claims that Nyesom Wike, the recently-resigned governor of Rivers State, is no longer a member of the party.
The PDP leadership resolved to isolate Wike and make him irrelevant in the party’s operations, according to Osadolor, who shared the info with our source on Tuesday.
He claims that Wike’s recent public appearances, in which he appeared to be moving toward the All Progressives Congress, expose him as a man who is constantly craving attention, regardless of the cost to his reputation as a leader of the opposition political party.
Because Wike is no longer himself, the PDP has disregarded him, he claimed. In addition to penalizing people, there are other methods of dealing with them. Someone can be kept in seclusion. Although Wike can claim to have avoided party activities, isn’t it preferable to abstain than to go there and find that no one wants to hang out with you? He went to court to obtain a decision that says he cannot be suspended, but there is no order that says he cannot be avoided, so he has received the cold shoulder. That is what the PDP has been doing to him, and if Wike is being completely honest with you, he will tell you that he is no longer a PDP member. No PDP leader or member acts in the same manner as he does.
However, a senior PDP figure and the previous Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Chris Finebone, quickly responded that Wike was still an actual member of the opposition group.
Osadolor’s remarks, according to Finebone, were mere wishful thinking because he lacked the authority to speak on behalf of the party.
We can’t tell who he stands for, but he said, “I suppose it’s wishful thinking. The man who is alleged to have said it is irrelevant in our opinion, and it is wishful thinking.
Therefore, nothing he said has any impact. The former governor of Rivers State, His Excellency Nyesom Wike, remains a wholly committed PDP supporter. Nothing can alter that fact.
He referred to the claim that Wike has been mingling with Tinubu as being trivial and petty.
