They described the demand which was made by the minister of the FCT, Nyesom Wike, as “baseless and unreasonable”.

The Guardian reported that on Monday, September 11, agitation for Atiku’s suspension was generating a fresh storm, even as Wike, was said to be in league with some members of the National Working Committee (NWC) to establish his grip on the party.

Wike had, last week, called on the NWC to suspend Atiku over what he termed “Atiku’s political inconsistencies.”

Reacting, a top-ranking PDP member, who pleaded anonymity, revealed that Wike’s boldness stemmed from the support he was getting from his allies within the party, especially members of the NWC.

He noted that some senior NWC members were working with Wike to expand his tentacles in the party and also frustrate Atiku and his men.
