Wike Threatens to Foil Senator Kingibe’s Re-election Bid



Federal Capital Territory FCT Minister, Ezenwo Nyesom Wike on Monday tackled the senator representing the territory, Ireti Heebah Kingibe, saying she would lose the support of the people in the next election.
Speaking at the Flag-off of the Mabushi Bus Terminal in Abuja, Wike said it was disheartening that instead of collaboration with the FCT Administration, Kingibe was instead angry that residents are praising the President Bola Tinubu administration.

He said: “I overheard somebody on Arise TV this morning. Unfortunately, I hear the person is a member of the National Assembly and it is unfortunate I say so. With all due respect, what you don’t know, you don’t know, what you know you know, and the good thing for you is to tell people you don’t when you don’t know, then people will educate you.

“The Honourable Minister of state and my humble self-have not been in office for more than 11 months and the person is angry that they are praising us. If you don’t want or you are angry about that, go and hang yourself on a transformer. If we have done well, we have done well. If we haven’t done well, we haven’t done well. I am proud to say that in the short time that Mr. President has appointed us, we have done well.

“You said there are no hospital and there are no hospitals. You, as a legislator, what have you done? How many bills have you sponsored for us to improve our education and health sector?

“I challenge that legislator. If you are very popular, 2027 come and run under Abuja, we will fail you. Do you think that what happened last time, will happen again? It will not happen again. Luckily for me, I am the FCT Minister now. So that is my territory and I’m not afraid.
“So, People should be able to come out and be able to accept the truth. We are not begging for anybody to become our friend; we have so many friends that we cannot even carry along. So how can we go and be begging people to become our friends. We are not interested in that. “If you are angry that people are praising us, by next year your BP level will go very high because the praises you would see would be too much”.

Kingibe had on the television programme castigated the Wike-led Administration, and said she is not a friend of the minister.
