Opposition PDP Refutes Claims That It Will Sanction Wike and Others Due to Mob Action

Posted by

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has stated that it will not allow itself to be manipulated by mobs in order to penalize party members who are alleged to have participated in anti-party actions.

Honor Debo Ologunagba, the PDP’s national press secretary, stated that the party will follow its rules and processes when imposing punishments, rather than giving in to the sentiments of individual party members.
The disciplinary committee is being reorganized to take on this responsibility, he noted, emphasizing the need to investigate and report on the situation.

Within the party, there have been calls to punish certain PDP governors for engaging in anti-party actions during the 2023 election and for them to repeat the same behavior in the 2027 election.
This group, which now includes one current governor and four former governors—Nyessom Wike of Rivers, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, Samuel Ortom of Benue, Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu, and Seyi Makinde of Oyo State—had previously backed Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate for 2023.

As a result of tensions that arose during the party primaries, they rejected Atiku Abubakar’s candidacy for the PDP.
But new signs suggest the long-sought party reconciliation may take a long time, since the feuding factions are still pointing fingers at one other, a pattern that began with the 2015 election.

Verifications by higher-ups On Sunday, it was discovered that the factions representing the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and the presidential candidate for 2023, Atiku Abubakar, differ on the necessity of sanctions.

Reconciliation centered on settling scores over the 2015 election result is the stance of the Wike camp, in contrast to the Atiku camp’s emphasis on punishment over the 2023 election incident.
Even more so, the race to be the PDP’s presidential candidate in 2027 has become entangled in the conflict, which has taken on an existential dimension.
