More Confusion Over Wike’s Presence At PDP Caucus Meeting



The Senate Minority Leader, Senator Comrade Abba Patrick Moro has thrown up more controversy over the presence of the erstwhile governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike at the National Caucus meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP last Wednesday.

Moro who represents Benue South in the Senate in a statement on Sunday blamed the disciplinary committee for failing to draw up any sanction against Wike or those who were alleged to have played anti-party in the last General Election.

In a statement issued by his Media Adviser, Emmanuel Eche’Ofun John, Senator Moro explaining the presence of Wike at the National Caucus said:

“The constitution of our party is very clear on who is a member and who is not a member of the caucus of the party and I dare say, at this point, that as a former governor who is still a member of the party, Nyesom Wike is a member of the National Caucus of the party.

“If actions had been taken immediately after the elections and people who are perceived to have acted contrary to the desires and yearnings of the PDP have been sanctioned, then we can say that having been expelled or suspended, you can’t be here, but as it is, non of such actions has been taken, so you can’t just ban people from attending meetings.

“One of the fallouts of the last NEC meeting was the resuscitation of the Reconciliation and Disciplinary Committee, which is saddled with the responsibility of identifying the area of antiparty and the dramatis personae involved in the activities, and recommend appropriate punitive measures against those who have been found guilty to serve as deterrent to future occurrence.

“Unfortunately, that hasn’t been done, and so to that extent, as a voluntary organization, if the members involved insist they are still members of the party, until actions are taken by the Reconciliation and Disciplinary Committe we want to take that they are still members of the party.”, however, reports that Moro’s stance on the membership of the national caucus was on Sunday being disputed by stakeholders who pointed out that his assertion on Wike was against the provisions of the PDP constitution.

The party’s constitution only lists six serving governors representing each of the six geopolitical zones as members of the National Caucus.
