A former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has faulted the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, for describing him and a former Minister of Transportation, Abiye Sekibo as “expired politicians” for supporting Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State.

Wike had during the parley with media Executives condemned the leaders of the PDP in Rivers State as “expired politicians” and “political buccaneer .

Last week, Secondus, Sekibo, director-general of the party’s presidential campaign council in Rivers; Sen Lee Maeba, Celestine Omehia, a former governorship aspirant and Austin Opara, an ex-lawmaker, declared support for Fubara and urged President Bola Tinubu to caution Wike.

But Secondus in a statement by his media aide, Ike Abonyi, described Wike as “a showman noted for his double-speak, twisting of facts to score some cheap political points, and someone who stands the truth on its head.”




He further described the FCT Minister’s utterances during his media parley as “appalling and rather unfortunate, more so he characterized our revered political leaders of Rivers State, casting them in a bad light by referring to them as transitional politicians, political vampires, and political buccaneers.”
