A former Delta Senator, Ned Nwoko, has berated Nyesom Wike for his role in the ongoing crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
VANTAGE NEWS reported that the billionaire businessman had earlier called on the PDP to expel Wike for engaging in anti-party activities.
Rivers State government in a response accused Nwoko of repeatedly attacking Wike because he was stopped from attempting “to fleece the commonwealth of Nigerians to the tune of $418 million over the Paris Club refund to some consultants”.
Nwoko while responding to the statement described Wike as a sore loser who wouldn’t have been fighting the party if he was picked as the vice presidential candidate by the party’s flagbearer in next year’s election, Atiku Abubakar.
He said, “It is unacceptable for Wike to continue to embarrass PDP with crude, unruly and bellicose tendencies, attempting to play God.
“Wike is a bad-tempered trouble monger. He should stop his recklessness. Enough of his unguarded statements.
“Why is he crying everywhere because he lost an election? Who made him an indispensable leader? Does he know how PDP evolved? His agitations are not genuine but selfish.
“He spoke dishonesty about the London-Paris club refund. He should be grateful. But for the initiative of Prince Ned Nwoko when Wike was struggling to be a local government chairman, the over 60 billion Naira he collected as Rivers state’s share from the Paris Club refund would not have been possible.”
