A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adamu Garba has opined that Nyesom Wike would be nothing without his current position as the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
According to him, it is the only thing holding Wike’s political capital.
Garba is of the view that “If Wike ceases to be FCT minister, the loyalty from his current team cannot be guaranteed”.
He made this known in a post on his X handle on Monday.
Garba warned APC to be careful not to inherit unnecessary enmity from the people.
The statement followed the political crisis in Rivers State, leading to the recent defection of 27 Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, lawmakers to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
“As it stands now, the only thing holding Wike’s political capital is the seat as the FCT Minister. If he ceases to be FCT minister, the loyalty from his current team cannot be guaranteed.
“Most importantly, Rivers State is a traditional PDP domain. Most of the establishments in Rivers are for the PDP, the traditional rulers are for the PDP and the people at the grassroots have been with the PDP,” he wrote.
“We must be careful not to inherit some unnecessary enmity from the people we truly need for the sake of our future election victories,” he added.
