Dele Momodu speaks on PDP crisis, Wike

Nigerian journalist/publisher, Dele Momodu, has said the fear of the former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant and governor of Rivers state, Governor Nyesom Wike, in the party is the beginning of wisdom.

Momodu who also contested in their party’s presidential primary along side Wike described him as a principled politician.

According to him in an interview on Channels Television on Monday, he said the outcome of PDP’s presidential primaries has made the Rivers state Governor a force to be reckoned with.

He also referred to Wike as a principled man who has been consistent about his love for the party.

He said; “For me, governor Wike is a very principled man; if there’s one thing he has been consistent about, it is his love for PDP; I believe he will not leave PDP. He is playing a mind game and he’s good at it. What shall he profit him if he joins APC?

“The situation in PDP shows what Wike is in the equation of things in Nigeria. If you have a man who is your best governor across the board, across party lines, Wike stands out as a fantastic performer.

“Today, the fear of Wike is the beginning of wisdom in PDP, there is no question about that. Wike is smart, he knows the game he’s playing, and what he wants to do is to force a deal with the party. That’s my own reading of the situation.

“He is a very smart politician. I’m sure eventually the party will reach an agreement with him.”

Momodu further called on presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, to have a one-on-one meeting with Wike to resolve the crisis rocking the party.
