PDP leaders will handle Wike, says Senate leader


The Senate Deputy Minority Leader, Senator Lere Oyewumi, said that the Federal Capital Territory Minister, Nyesom Wike’s problems will be handled by party leaders very well.

Oyewumi noted that the challenges the former governor of Rivers State is facing are an aftermath of the role he played in the 2023 general election.

The Senate Deputy Minority Leader said this while addressing journalists in Ikire, Osun state, at the weekend.

He opined that Wike’s problem cuts many political parties including Peoples Democratic Party, All Progressives Congress and the New Nigeria Peoples Party.

While noting that Wike is a prominent leader, he maintained that the political turbulence shaking the minister would subside by next year.

In his words, “Nyesom Wike is one of our prominent leaders. He did wonderfully well in Rivers State during the last general election. His successor is one of the PDP governors who has never missed any PDP programme.

“This problem is not a PDP issue alone. A few days ago, some people suspended Senator Rabiu Kwakwanso from NNPP. Some of his own people also suspended those who suspended him.

“Look at what happened to the National Chairman and the National Secretary of APC that produced the President; they were removed almost immediately after the swearing-in of the President.

“So, the issue is in all the parties. After you go for the general election, there will be some turbulences. It’s like when a plane takes off or lands; you have to fasten your belt. This is the period for fastening belts for political parties, but after the next year, everything will subside again.

“Wike may have some issues that he is reacting to, but I’m sure the party leadership are handling it very well.”
