Remark About “Expired Politicians” Causes Secondus to Lose to Wike

Posted by

Accusations of being “expired politicians” due to their support for Siminalayi Fubara, governor of Rivers State, have been leveled against Uche Secondus and Abiye Sekibo by Nyesom Wike, minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Secondus was the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Do you remember last week when Austin Opara, a former lawmaker, Senator Lee Maeba, Sekibo (who was the director-general of the party’s presidential campaign committee in Rivers State), and Secondus publicly stated their support for Fubara? They also requested President Bola Tinubu to warn Wike.

In retaliation, Wike had earlier called out the PDP’s Rivers State leaders as “expired politicians” and “political buccaneers” in a live media talk in Abuja.

While Secondus characterized 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,” this was stated by his media aide, Ike Abonyi, a statement that Secondus issued.

In his media chat with select journalists, the FCT Minister allegedly made “appalling and rather unfortunate” comments, particularly about the revered political leaders of Rivers State, whom he vilified by calling them “political vampires, political buccaneers,” and “transitional politicians.”
