Secondus fires back at Wike for saying they’re “expired politicians”

In the midst of the ongoing political tension in Rivers State, Uche Secondus, the former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, has responded to Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory.

Recall that during a media gathering in Abuja on Tuesday, Nyesom Wike referred to Uche Secondus, Sen George Sekibo, and other PDP leaders in Rivers State as “expired politicians and buccaneers.” Wike criticized their support for Fubara, with whom he is currently in a political dispute.


Meanwhile, reacting in a statement on Wednesday, Secondus, through his media adviser, Ike Abonyi, in Abuja, said Wike’s performance at the media engagement 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.”

Secondus further described Wike, his former political ally 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 also referred to Wike’s utterances during the Abuja parley as “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.”
