Wike Has Fought Anyone That Has Refused To Become His Puppet – APC Chieftain. Chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Eze Chukwuemeka has criticised the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, for what he perceives as inconsistency in his political dealings.
Chukwuemeka, in an interview with the Punch newspaper, expressed his concerns about Wike’s unpredictable nature. Wike’s inconsistency, as highlighted by Chukwuemeka, is marked by a pattern of saying one thing today and doing the opposite the next day. This behaviour, according to the APC chieftain, raises questions about the minister’s reliability and trustworthiness in the political arena.
Chukwuemeka points out that Wike has engaged in disputes with prominent figures within the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). From Ali Modu-Sheriff to Uche Secondus and Senator Iyorcha Ayu, Wike’s confrontations seem widespread, leading to questions about his ability to maintain harmonious relationships within his own party.
The APC chieftain’s caution to the National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC reflects his belief that Wike’s inconsistency poses a potential threat. The warning suggests that Chukwuemeka sees Wike as a political figure whose actions may not align with his words, urging vigilance in dealing with him.
Chukwuemeka goes further to claim that Wike desires control, expecting others to be his puppets. The moment someone resists, as stated by the APC chieftain, Wike will resort to confrontation. This allegation sheds light on Wike’s leadership style and its potential impact on political relationships.
He stated this when asked why he warned the APC NWC to be wary of Wike.
According to him, “Yes, I said so because that young man is inconsistent. He says one thing today and does a different thing tomorrow. He has fought everybody in the PDP: Ali Modu-Sheriff, Uche Secondus, Senator Iyorcha Ayu, and so on.
“He wants everyone to be his puppet and when you disagree he fights you. He said he can never settle for Vice Presidential candidate but we all saw how he went back and heavily lobbied for it after he lost to Atiku Abubakar. He said he can never be a Minister.
“He begged and lobbied and he got it. He announced at the PDP presidential primary ground, that he will support anyone that emerges. What happened at the end of the day? He said if God helps him and finishes his tenure, he has no business in the administration of the state. Today he is fighting to retain power for a third term.”
