Wike to Kingibe: Come 2027 I’ll send you packing from senate


L-R: Kingibe, Wike

Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, Nyesom Wike, has slammed  Sen Ireti Kinigbe for criticizing him and has vowed to ensure that she would not return to the senate in 2027.

Kingibe had publicly criticized the Wike-led administration during a television appearance, declaring that she was not an ally of the minister.

Responding while inaugurating the Mabushi Bus Terminal in Abuja on July 1, Wike expressed disappointment over Kingibe’s comments.

He said that instead of fostering collaboration with the FCT Administration, Kingibe appeared more concerned about residents praising President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

“I overheard somebody on Arise TV this morning. Unfortunately, I hear 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 hospital and 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?

“I challenge that legislator. If you are very popular, 2027 come and run under Abuja, we will fail you.

“Do you think that what happened last time, will happen again? It will not happen again.

“Luckily for me, I am the FCT Minister now. So that is my territory and I’m not afraid,” Wike boasted.
