You’re the most transactional politician in Nigeria – Uche Secondus slams Wike

Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, has fired back at the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike amid the ongoing political rift in Rivers State.

Recall that at a recent media parley in Abuja, Wike described Secondus, George Sekibo and other PDP leaders in Rivers State as “expired politicians and buccaneers” because they supported the state governor Siminalayi Fubara, with whom he is at loggerheads.

In a statement released through his media adviser, Ike Abonyi on Wednesday, Secondus said the FCT minister’s performance at the media engagement was an exhibition of usual pattern of being economical with the truth.

The former PDP chairman said; “It was an exhibition of his well-known trait of being economical with the truth, harbinger of half-truths and a mastermind of outright falsehoods just to hoodwink unsuspecting members of the public to believe his brew by playing to the gallery and drawing some unwarranted applause and attention.

“Wike is 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.

“His utterances are appalling and rather unfortunate, more so (when) he characterized our revered political leaders of Rivers State, casting them in bad light by referring to them as transactional politicians, political vampires, and political buccaneers.”
