Ayodele Fayose, the former Governor of Ekiti State, has issued a serious warning to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, against expelling the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, from the party.
According to Fayose, the PDP would be expelling Wike at its own peril because he’s a force within the party.
The former governor issued the warning while appearing on Channels Television’s Hard Copy.
According to Fayose: “The moment I am not in the PDP, I would never join another political party. And I would never be a member of the APC – not whether they are good or bad.
“Some people say fight Wike, expel Wike, sack Wike. I think they do that at their own peril. You see, the first thing in your family, even when you have extreme situations or indifferences, is not to drive away your wife or husband.
“Wike is a force in the PDP and beyond PDP, a force you cannot ignore, ignore Wike, sack Wike, or fight Wike at your own peril. He is a man of capacity.”
There have been calls for the PDP to expel Wike from the party following his decision to support President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, during the last presidential election.
Recently, the new Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, had declared that nobody can expel him from the former ruling party.
