I owe everything to Tinubu, fears no threat – Wike


By Abdullahi Muhammad, Abuja

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory ( FCT), Barr. Nyesom Wike has on Tuesday said he fears no threat, be it political or otherwise, stating that he owes everything to President Bola Tinubu who appointed him.

He disclosed this while hosting Leaders of Ethnic Nationalities from Niger Delta region who paid a solidarity visit to him.

Wike noted that he has resolved to remain firm and undistracted, considering the enormity of the responsibility given him by the President.

The Minister called on the leaders to support the President, as the task of developing Nigeria and building a virile economy, transcends political affiliations.

Speaking earlier in his speech, the former Presidential Amnesty Programme Coordinator, Kingsley Kuku, who read the speech of the group, warned all politicians to know that any attack on Wike will be considered as an affront to the collective interest of the region.

” Wike is not a political orphan from the Niger Delta, he has a strong socio-political base. So we take very serious exception to the call for the Minister’s sack and to the blackmail on the President with denial of electoral/political support in far away 2027 should the President fail to do his bidding.

” To say the least, Gummi’s abrogation of exclusive ownership and monopoly of administration of Abuja by a given ethno-religious region in Nigeria is not only disgusting, senseless but also puerile, hubristic, irresponsible and divisive”
