The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader, Dele Momodu, has expressed displeasure with Federal Capital Territory Minister Nyesom Wike’s wish to “eat his cake and have it” and has urged the party’s leadership to discipline Wike.
Momodu vented his annoyance, saying that he would have disciplined Wike for allegedly acting against the party’s interests if he had the power.
During an appearance on Arise Television, Momodu disclosed that Wike’s behaviour is harmful to the party’s unity and underlined that the PDP leadership needs to address it.
He remarked,: “If I had the power, I would have punished Wike long ago. The PDP leadership must have its reasons for keeping him while he continues to trouble the party.
“He wants to eat his cake and have it,” he added.
For the PDP, the ongoing conflict between Wike and Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara has had a major impact.
Twenty-five state House of Assembly members who supported Wike are said to have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC), while a number of state executive council commissioners have submitted their resignations.
