“My friend, Umahi, wants to be president. There is no problem about that.

But Mr Umahi attacked Mr Wike, describing him as a dictator.

Mr Umahi in an interview with Arise TV, revealed that Mr Wike is single-handedly controlling the affairs of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, autocratically which has made governors on the platform unhappy with him.

“Wike must know he is a dictator; he must know that one person cannot be called a crowd.

“Wike must know that a lot of governors in the PDP are very sad with him,” Umahi added.

According to Umahi, Wike single-handedly made Secondus the PDP Chairman and tried to impose one of his own as the minority leader in the House of Representatives.

“He must know that there is nothing that happens in the PDP without his authorization.”

Umahi warned Gov. Wike not to clash with him because it will be dangerous.

He warned Wike to focus on the party and stop demonstrating dictatorship traits by attacking him.

“Wike has called the PDP committee all kinds of unprintable names, and I have asked Gov. Wike, he is my friend, and let’s not take on ourselves because it will be very dangerous.

“Focus on the party, the party does not belong to him and this is nothing personal but Wike is demonstrating the dictatorship tendencies in him by taking on me a fellow governor.”

Dr Ogundele, who said it was strange that the Zonal Chairman could visit former President Olusegun Obasanjo, in Abeokuta, without informing the party’s structure in Ogun state, said it was obvious that he (Arapaja) was still acting as the same script he acted as Zonal Chairmanship aspirant.

He counselled Arapaja to purge himself of sectionalism, saying; “having extended hands of fellowship to him, it is obvious that he wants to function as a sectional Zonal Chairman and we will keep watching him.”

He said “visiting former President Obasanjo in Abeokuta like an orphan is a slap on the PDP as a party and the earlier Ambassador Arapaja begins to see himself as zonal Chairman of all members of the party in the South-West, the better for him.”

While describing as unacceptable, the situation whereby Ambassador Arapaja was now going cap in hands to seek fund for the running of the party in the zone, Dr Ogundele said he wondered why the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde cannot fund the Zonal Exco.

He described the visit to Obasanjo to seek link to some money-bags to be visited to beg for fund as a slap on the party in the zone, adding that what should be paramount to the Arapaja led zonal Exco was the bringing together of all stakeholders in the party.
