The Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Umar Damagum, has declared that former Rivers State Governor and Federal Capital Territory Minister, Nyesom Wike, and his associates will face sanctions for purported anti-party activities when the appropriate time comes.
Addressing queries during a press conference in Abuja on December 19, Damagum emphasized that Wike and his group are subject to party discipline and not exempt from consequences.
“Our stand about Wike, I have always said this thing that as long as you are a member of the PDP, there is a time for everything. My duty is to stabilise this party and not to cause crisis. And I will continue to do that within the confines of reason.
“When things go out of hand, we will act. But meanwhile, we still see it within the ambit of the law. Mind you, we have other litigation going on in this party and we won’t want to plunge our party into another crisis.
And let me tell you something, it’s not only Wike, there are other people who worked against this party. When we get to that level we will sanction everybody. If Wike believes he is above this party, we will be able to show him that he is not above this party.”
