Wike Has Been Ignored By PDP, He's No Longer Himself — NEC Member

A member of the Peoples Democratic Party’s National Executive Committee, Timothy Osadolor, has stated that the party Nyesom Wike has been ignored by the party as he is no longer himself.

Osadolor, who made the disclosure on Tuesday via a phone conversation with Punch added that PDP leadership has decided to isolate the immediate past governor of Rivers State so as to render him inconsequential.

The NEC member stated that Wike's recent activities whereby he appeared to show solidarity with the All Progressives Congress (APC) expose him as a man with a craving for the spotlight regardless of the cost to his reputation.

“The PDP has ignored Wike because the man is no longer himself.

“There are more ways to deal with people apart from sanctioning them. You can keep someone in isolation.

“He (Wike) can boast that he is the one that stayed away but is it not better to stay away than come to party activities and nobody wants to associate with you?

“He has been given a cold treatment because he went to court to procure a judgment that says he cannot be suspended but there is no judgment that says he cannot be avoided.

“That is what the PDP has been doing to him and technically, if Wike wants to say the truth, he will tell you that he is no longer a member of the PDP.

“No PDP leader or member behaves the way he does”, Osadolor said.

Reacting promptly to Osadolor's words, a PDP chieftain and the immediate past Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Chris Finebone, countered him by saying Wike remains a bonafide party member.

“We can’t identify who he represents, but I think it is wishful thinking. It is wishful thinking and the man who is said to have said that is inconsequential as far as we are concerned.

“And so, whatever he has said is of no effect. His Excellency, the former Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, is 110 per cent a member of PDP and nothing has changed. And nothing can change it.”
