The Rivers State Government has slammed a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ned Nwoko, over his call for the expulsion of Governor Nyesom Wike from the party.
Naija News reported that Nwoko, the Delta North Senatorial candidate had called for the expulsion of the Rivers state governor over his recent antagonistic behaviours causing crisis in the party.
Nwoko described Wike as a nuisance that has caused a lot of damage to the party and therefore should be sent out of the PDP.
In his reaction to Nwoko’s statement, the state Commissioner for Information and Communication, Chris Finebone, said the Delta politician is an inconsequential bystander.
He said: “Such puerile comments by Ned Nwoko are not strange. I suspect a major disorder that comes with several bizarre behaviors. It’s one of the worst afflictions in life.”
A top aide to Wike, who wanted to remain anonymous, in speaking with Journalists, said that Nwoko is not a factor in PDP politics, hence, no one would take him seriously.
He said: “Ned Nwoko? The name doesn’t ring any bell in PDP.
“He’s just a bystander who knows nothing about the inner workings of the PDP at the highest level. It’s not enough to claim to be a big man.
“I bet no one will take him seriously, but we dare anyone who thinks otherwise to grant his wishful thinking.
“People must stop taking the G-5 leading the call for equity and fairness in PDP as some selfish joke of key agitators.
“Nwoko is not a factor in PDP politics. But the governor knows he (Nwoko) is being used to disparage him.
“But as we say in local parlance, ‘he no reach’. Wike or Rivers PDP will not glorify an insignificant order.”
