He said that Wike was being treated with levity by the PDP hierarchy, adding that he should be shown the way out of the party.

According to him: ” Wike Is a nuisance, quote me anywhere. If I were the leader of the party, I would have acted differently. I would have done things differently. He has done a lot of damage to the PDP and I don’t know what they are waiting for to show him the way out.”

Nwoko said he would do better than he did in the House of Representatives in 1999, adding that the hallmark of a good legislator is the ability to lobby.

“A good lawmaker is almost as good as someone with executive power. It is all about lobbying. Normally our focus is on the well-being of Nigeria. As a senator, I will be representing Nigeria whether you are in PDP, APC or Labour Party. It doesn’t make any difference to me. If you look at the bills I sponsored when I was in the House of Representatives, it was all about the people. It was about the minimum wage, about the disability allowance and many others like that.”

Coming down to Delta, the Benin/Asaba road need to be resurfaced, we also need service stations along the way.”

He also added that more dams should be built to check the menace of the flood.

Governor Wike is yet to respond to the matter.

He stated that they cannot continue to participate in the subversion of the system. That will totally contradict our position of creating a new Nigeria.
