Abuja—Former lawmaker and social critic, Shehu Sani, says his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has no business being in court to challenge the outcome of the 2023 general elections, if it allowed members to join the current administration.
The Daily Post reports that Sani’s statement was contained in a post on his social media platform, X, formerly known as Twitter, on Tuesday.
“If the PDP has approved and endorsed its members joining the Government, then it has no business being in Court,” Sani said.
The statement came after former Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike was appointed a minister by President Bola Tinubu.
Wike is of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and has not tendered any formal resignation.
Wike claimed that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gave him the green light to accept the ministerial position under Tinubu’s administration.
He spoke following his inauguration on Monday as the minister of the FCT.
“Before this appointment came, I wrote to the national chairman. I wrote to the minority leaders of the House of Reps and Senate,” Wike said.
