The immediate-past governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, is no longer a member of the party, according to Timothy Osadolor, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party’s National Executive Committee, because of his actions leading up to, during, and following the 2023 general elections.
Osadolor dropped a hint that the party’s leadership had resolved to isolate Wike and make him irrelevant to PDP operations.

He claims that Wike’s recent public appearances, in which he appeared to be moving toward the All Progressives Congress, expose him as a man who is constantly craving attention, regardless of the cost to his reputation as a leader of the opposition political party.
According to him, “The PDP has ignored Wike because the man is no longer himself. There are more ways to deal with people apart from sanctioning them. You can keep someone in isolation. He (Wike) can boast that he is the one that stayed away but is it not better to stay away than come to party activities and nobody wants to associate with you?
“He has been given a cold treatment because he went to court to procure a judgment that says he cannot be suspended but there is no judgment that says he cannot be avoided. That is what the PDP has been doing to him and technically, if Wike wants to say the truth, he will tell you that he is no longer a member of the PDP. No PDP leader or member behaves the way he does.”
