Wike slams Secondus, others for supporting Fubara



Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory and former Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has slammed some leaders of the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for declaring support for the current governor, Siminalayi Fubara.

Wike made this statement during a chat with newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja.

The PDP leaders in Rivers State, Abiye Sekibo; ex-PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus; ex-governorship aspirant, Celestine Omehia; and ex-lawmaker, Austin Opara, had last week declared support for Fubara and called on the President to caution FCT minister.

However, reacting on Tuesday, the former Rivers State Governor said Sekibo, Secondus, Omehia, and Opara are all expired politicians who are not worthy to be called “elder statesmen.”

The FCT minister said they were all irrelevant as he kicked them out of the party.

Wike insisted that Secondus was no longer a member of the PDP, as his suspension was validated by the court.
