Ned Nwoko Asks PDP To Kick Wike Out

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for Delta North senatorial district, Ned Nwoko has asked the party to kick Governor Nyesom Wike out.

Nwoko who said this on Monday at the Asaba airport while returning from Abuja insisted that Wike was now constituting a nuisance to the party in the country.

“Wike is a nuisance, quote me anywhere. If I were [in] the leadership of the party, I would have acted differently.

"I would have done things differently. He has done a lot of damage to the PDP and I don’t know what they are waiting for to show him the way out.”

Wike and four other governors in the party are calling for the resignation of the National Chairman of the PDP, Senator Iyorchia Ayu to pave the way for the emergence of a Southern Chairman in line with the zoning arrangement of the party.

The governors have also boycotted the campaign rallies of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

But, on Sunday evening, Governor Ortom at the Makurdi Airport, received Governors Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu and Seyi Makinde of Oyo state for commissioning of projects in the state. 

It was the first time the five influential governors were meeting as a group in Benue State.

The five governors held a meeting at the recently commissioned Ape Aku Lodge ahead of the State Banquet put together by the Benue State government.
