A former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has lambasted the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr Nyesom Wike, for describing him and a former Minister of Transportation, Abiye Sekibo as “expired politicians” over their support for Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

Secondus in a statement by his media aide, Ike Abonyi, as exhibiting during a media parley on Tuesday in Abuja “his well-known trait of being a pathological liar, 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 had during the parley with media Executives condemned the leaders of the PDP in Rivers State as “expired politicians” and “political buccaneers.”

Last week, Secondus, Sekibo, director-general of the party’s presidential campaign council in Rivers; Celestine Omehia, a former governorship aspirant and Austin Opara, an ex-lawmaker, declared support for Fubara and urged President Bola Tinubu to caution Wike.

But Secondus in his reaction, described 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.”

He further described the FCT Minister’s utterances during his media parley as “appalling and rather unfortunate, more so he characterized our revered political leaders of Rivers State, casting them in a bad light by referring to them as transitional politicians, political vampires and political buccaneers.”

The statement added, “Perhaps in his haste to impugn the integrity of these elders who made him, he forgot to taste that he was referencing himself as being a man imbued with such unwholesome character.”

“Nigerians can attest to the fact that there is no greater transitional politician, a well-known vampire who oscillates between two extremes and a buccaneer who has betrayed all those who made him than Nyesom Wike himself.”
