By Damilare Adeleye

The minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has urged the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party to suspend the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar.

The former governor of Rivers State and chieftain of the PDP also called for the suspension of Sule Lamido and Aminu Tambuwal from the main opposition party.

Speaking in an interview on Channels Television, Wike said himself and members of the G5 should be congratulated for fighting for justice, equity and fairness within the party.

He said, “I’m calling on the National Working Committee of the party to, as a matter of urgency, suspend the presidential candidate of the party, suspend Aminu Tambuwal, suspend Sule Lamido …”

Asked why he thinks he shouldn’t be suspended too, Wike added, “They know I didn’t do anything wrong. They should be congratulating us for fighting for equity, fairness and justice… ”

When asked if he was not fighting against the will of the party, Wike added that the party was fighting against Nigerians.

“Is the party not against Nigerians? Who is superior? Is the party superior to Nigerians?

“There is a Constitution. But because you think you have the power, you don’t want to follow the Constitution.

“They think they can do anything without anybody which they know is not possible. You can’t succeed,” he further stated.
