Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has urged Nigerians who do not want to be betrayed to desist from venturing into politics.
He gave the advice while delivering a speech at his New Year banquet in Rivers state on Sunday, 7th of January, 2024.
The former Rivers state governor recalled when President Bola Tinubu told him during a meeting that somebody warned him not to trust him.
Wike also said those in politics must have ‘shock absorber’ and should not be bothered when they are betrayed, rather they should prepare themselves for when it happens.
He said; ‘’Why do you have shock absorber? You can marry today and she leaves tomorrow morning. Will you die? You have to be alive to marry another wife. You buy Global 7000, it crashes. will you die? You buy a car and armed robber takes it on the road, will you die? You must have shock absorber. That is the only way you can survive.
President Tinubu told me when we were meeting, he said look ‘somebody told him don’t trust this person’. Politics and betrayal are the same mother and father. If you don’t want to be betrayed, don’t enter into politics. Don’t bother that anybody betrayed you. Prepare yourself that it will happen.”
