Senate’s Deputy Minority Leader, Senator Lere Oyewumi, has maintained that, Nyesom Wike is still a strong leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Oyewumi noted the issues between Wike and the PDP was the effect of the post general election.
He said, “Nyesom Wike is one of our prominent leaders. He did wonderfully well in Rivers State during the last general election. His successor is one of the PDP governors who has never missed any PDP programme.
“This problem is not a PDP issue alone, a few days ago, some people suspended Senator Rabiu Kwakwanso from NNPP. Some of his own people also suspended those who suspended him.
“Look at what happened to the National Chairman and the National Secretary of APC that produced the President, they were removed almost immediately after the swearing-in of the President
“So, the issue is in all the parties. After you go for the general election, there will be some turbulences. It’s like when a plane takes off or lands; you have to fasten your belt. This is the period for fastening belts for political parties but after the next one year, everything will subside again.
“Wike may have some issues that he is reacting to but I’m sure the party leadership are handling it very well”.
