I don’t like ingrates, Wike speaks on feud with Gov Fubara
The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, has opened up on the feud between him and his predecessor, Rivers State Governor, Sim Fubara.
Wike, referring to the crisis in the state, said money and power reveal the true identity of a person.
He made this known during a press briefing with journalists on Friday in Abuja.
“Let me tell you, I don’t like ingrates; I can’t stand it. What is happening now is what Odili said in his book: ‘Give a man power and money, then you will know the person.’
“If you haven’t given a man, power and money, then you don’t know the person. However, I’m not worried because I’m a politician. I know what other states are suffering because of debt, but go and check if I left liabilities; the records are there.
“I left projects for him to commission so he would showcase during his hundred days, then politics came in. We are just starting; God gave you something; you are now importing crisis.
“God gave this on the platter of gold; the Federal Government is not fighting you, no crisis, but you are the one now trying to create a crisis for yourself; only those who are natural ingrates will support what is happening there. I use the instrumentality of law to fight not thugs, time will come.”
