Channels Television host, Seun Okinbaloye rebuked Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Segun Sowunmi during an interview on Sunday, July 3, 2022.

Speaking on the issue surrounding the party internal wrangling, Sowunmi was of the view that the media was responsible for the prolonged discussions on Atiku and Wike settlement.

It has been reported that the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike was unhappy with the party after the PDP selected Okowa Ifeanyi as Atiku’s running mate ahead of the 2023 election after coming second in the presidential primaries.

However, reports indicate that in other to appease the mind of Wike following his defeat at the presidential; primaries and Atiku’s failure to select him for the running mate position, there have been division in the PDP party.

Sowunmi appealed to the media to “I’m begging you guys in the media you’ve dragged this thing for too long, it’s enough.

He noted that the PDP was the only party who have settled its candidacy.

“We are the only party that have settled its candidacy, others are using placeholders.”

You people should please, let us relax on this matter, our ticket is now settled, we have a joint ticket, we are happy with the pick, we will manage everybody on board.

Reacting to this during the interviews, Seun knocked the chieftain and asked him not to blame the party problem on the media.

“I do not agree, why do politicians blame the media. You have a problem in your party, we follow it, and what we do, our job is to bring out what is happening to the larger public. So don’t blame your problem on the media. When you guys are frustrated. Can you take it back that it is not us.”
