Rivers crisis: Nobody can take away my political structure – Wike

Nov 2, 2023 | Politics | 0 comments

Nysome Wike, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, says no one can take over his political system and he will fight back against unfair opponents.

Wike said this when welcoming PDP-elected governors to his office on Wednesday.

The governors intervened after Rivers State Governor Simi Fubara and the minister, the state’s immediate past governor, had a political fight.

Wike said he would never be intimidated and would not let anyone remove his political structure.

“Let me thank my brothers and friends for this wonderful visit, just to appreciate Mr. President for giving me this position, and we will continue to work for Mr. President to realise his renewed hope agenda.

I have stated that I am not a party supporter. I serve Nigeria and its unity. I’ve never hidden my PDP membership.

“They discussed Rivers State’s crisis. Please know that I cannot be intimidated.

“Whether you bring thugs or claim to be Ijaw, it doesn’t matter. I’ll do what I want. The Constitution allows impeachment, not a military coup.

“The money rumors are nonsense. I just left the office—how many months ago? I’m the FCT minister.

“No one can take our political structure. I listened and believed you can’t work, and people would bring adversaries who fought you. Nobody does that.

“I heard I limited his abilities; I want 25%. These are ludicrous. Don’t touch Rivers State’s political structure—I’m not a political ingrate. I will not close my eyes. ”

“Forget about the Obedience and Atikus, who lost, felt I didn’t support them, and revoked their C of O.

“‘Wike did this, Wike did that’ because I didn’t support their presidential candidates. I’m unconcerned and will do what’s proper.

“Our father, the president, spoke. We will see what happens. No propaganda can discredit me; my conscience is spotless.

I am not someone who can say anything on social media and get away with it. Be careful—I can fight back.”
