Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has dared the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to suspend him from the party.
Wike, during a live media parley on Friday, said the leadership of the party lacks the capability to suspend him from the party.
The governor has been at loggerheads with the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu; as well as its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar since he lost in the presidential primaries in May.
He and his camp have called on Ayu to resign from office but the chairman has refused to do so.
According to Wike, the National Executive Council of the party lacks the capacity to suspend him. While responding to a question about his anti-party activities, Wike said; “Who will suspend me? Which party? I am not saying that I am bigger than the party, but nobody can suspend me from the party.
“I dare them today, the NEC, and say this person is now suspended from the party. They know what I will do. Pikin wey no want make him mama sleep, him go sleep?”
Wike also disclosed that the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate; Bola Tinubu, offered him a senatorial ticket to join the ruling party, but he rejected it.
“I didn’t contest so I can become a vice presidential candidate. I am not like others who were not serious and bought senatorial form alongside presidential form…That’s why when Tinubu offered me senate slot, I didn’t go for it,’’ Wike said.
