“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."

Osadolor further stated that his recent bromance with President Bola Tinubu and the All Progressives Congress (APC) also depicts his true nature as one who craves attention and spotlight.

Reacting to Osadolor's comments, the immediate past Rivers State commissioner for information and communication, Chris Finebone, dismissed the submissions of the PDP chieftain.
