You won’t return to Senate in 2027 – Wike threatens FCT Senator, Kingibe


The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike has lashed out at the senator representing the territory, Ireti Heebah Kingibe.

Speaking during the flag-off of the construction of the Mabushi Bus Terminal in Abuja, Wike said Kingibe would lose the support of FCT residents in the next election.

The former Rivers State Governor said it was disheartening that instead of collaborating with the FCT Administration, Kingibe was instead angry that residents are reportedly praising him (Wike).

“I overheard somebody on Arise TV this morning. Unfortunately, I heard the person is a member of the National Assembly and it is unfortunate I say so. With all due respect, what you don’t know, you don’t know, what you know you know, and the good thing for you is to tell people you don’t when you don’t know, then people will educate you.

“The Honourable Minister of State and my humble self have not been in office for more than 11 months and the person is angry that they are praising us. If you don’t want or you are angry about that, go and hang yourself on a transformer.

“If we have done well, we have done well. If we haven’t done well, we haven’t done well. I am proud to say that in the short time that Mr President has appointed us, we have done well.

“You said there are no hospitals. You, as a legislator, what have you done? How many bills have you sponsored for us to improve our education and health sector,” he queried.

He challenged Kingibe to contest in 2027, insisting that she would fail woefully.

According to Wike, what happened in the last election that brought Kingibe into power would not repeat itself.

He stressed that FCT is his territory and he is not afraid.

Wike urged people to accept the truth, stressing that he would not beg anyone to be their friend.

Saga Gist recalls that Kingibe had, during the television programme, criticised the Wike-led administration in the FCT, saying she is not a friend of the minister.
