The controversial chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Nyesom Wike has disclosed that he received consent of his party before accepting Ministerial appointment by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Penpushing reports that Wike made the clarification following criticisms which followed his appointment as Minister, and being a member of the opposition party, arguing that he has evidence to back up his claim
The former Governor of Rivers State described members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who criticized his appointment as ‘Reggae Dancer’ having lost their opportunity because of arrogance and impunity.
Penpushing further reports that Wike who had once said he won’t serve as Minister after serving as Governor explained that the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) Governors submitted names for ministerial positions to President Bola Tinubu.
The newly sworn-in Minister said he wrote letters to Acting National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Umar Damagun, incumbent Governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara and Minority Leaders in the Senate and House of Representatives, seeking their permission to accept the offer.
Penpushing also reports that he emphasized that all the leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which he sought their permission responded by granting him the permission to accept the ministerial offer.
“Can you even mention who is my enemy? Can you even mention one person that is my enemy? See, people carry propaganda. Let me use this opportunity to tell you that I don’t like people who don’t tell the truth. They said they’re going to sanction me because I accepted the appointment. I don’t have any clause’, he stated.
‘The president wrote to the 36 state governors to bring names of people to appoint, didn’t PDP governors submit names? Every PDP governor wrote a letter and nominated ten persons to be appointed by this government’, Wike added.
‘But the one they talk about is Wike. Before this appointment came, I wrote to the national chairman. I wrote to the minority leaders of the House of Representatives and Senate.I wrote to the zonal chairman of the party and my state chairman. I wrote to my governor and all of them wrote me back and said accept’, he said.
“I have my evidence documented. Forget these reggae dancers. I call them reggae dancers because when you’ve lost your opportunity, you’ve lost your opportunity because of arrogance and impunity’, Wike said.
Penpushing reports that the outspoken immediate past Governor of Rivers State and a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was sworn in as Minister of Federal Capital Territory(FCT) on Monday alongside other Ministers.
