LP FCT tackles Wike for threatening Ireti Kingibe

The Federal Capital Territory Chapter of the Labour Party (LP) on Thursday berated FCT minister, Nyesom Wike, for allegedly issuing threats to Senator Ireti Kingibe after the latter drew public attention to the city’s shortcomings. The FCT chairman of the party, Comrade Diugwu Chukwuemeka, Thursday, said that Wike’s outburst was a clear indication of the fact that he is scarcely aware of the peculiarity of the FCT as mini-Nigeria where every part of the nation is represented. According to him, the minister failed to understand that every State has their peculiarity, the variables playing out in Rivers State are quite different from what is obtainable in FCT where 98 per cent of residents are literate.

He is not even sure whether he will last till the expiration of Ireti’s first tenure in office. “I want to put it on record that the roads he claims he has done in FCT were roads initiated by GoodLuck Jonathan which he completed 70 per cent but was abandoned by the Buhari regime out of envy. Let him create a project and complete it for the world to see.” he said The LP Chairman pointed out that Senator Kingibe did nothing wrong by merely calling the Minister’s attention to the real needs of FCT residents as the Senator representing FCT and members of the Senate Committee on FCT.

Nyesom Wike chose to be confrontational to the extent of threatening our Senator who commands overwhelming respect of the residents of the FCT,” he said. The party chairman stated in clear terms that Labour Party as well as residents of the FCT are solidly behind Senator Kingibe.
