I can't be intimidated, I've capacity to fight back - Wike

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory FCT, Nyesom Wike has told his successor, Siminalayi Fubara that no one can intimidate him, saying he has the capacity to fight back and warned against any attempt at tampering with his political structure in Rivers state.

Wike made the declaration after a closed-door meeting with visiting members of the PDP Governors’ Forum led by its Chairman and Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed.

Others on the visit were the Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri, Governor of Plateau State, Caleb Muftwang, and Governor of Taraba State, Agbu Kefas.

Recall that crisis had erupted in Rivers State on Monday, after an attempt by the Rivers State Assembly, to impeach the incumbent Governor, Siminalayi Fubara.

However, Wike while addressing the PDP Governors, said; "Nobody can intimidate me. If I want to do something, I will do it. Impeachment is not a military coup. It is provided under the Constitution. I am not interested in all the rumours, money, this, and that. Rubbish. Absolute rubbish. I just left office how many months ago? And I am FCT Minister, so which money? 

"But nobody can take away our political structure. No one. You cannot work and people will begin to bring enemies, those who fought you when you were struggling for the person to be in office. Nobody does that. I am not a political ingrate, but don't touch the political structure of the state. I will not shut my eyes”, Wike said.

The minister also expressed his firm commitment to the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu, saying he would continue to discharge his mandate in accordance with the spirit and letters of the constitution.

He said; “Forget about the Obidients and the Atikus who have lost, and who felt that I did not support them. And those who I revoked their C of Os.

"Oh Wike did this, Wike did that because I didn't support Obi, I didn't support their own Presidential candidate, and all of you just teamed up 'Wike, Wike, Wike'. All those things, I am not perturbed, I will do what is right. My conscience is clear. I am not the person you think that you will now go to social media and say all kinds of things. You must be careful, I have the capacity to fight back”, he warned.

Earlier, the Gov. Mohammed expressed happiness that the crisis in Rivers State had been resolved, adding that the swiftness of the resolution, showed the importance of the State as an economic enclave.

He thanked Wike for his willingness to resolve issues and also commended the President for his appointment of Wike as FCT Minister, noting that his antecedents speak volumes as to his ability to lead.
