The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nysome Wike, has said that no one can take over his political structure and that he can fight back against anyone fighting him unjustly.

claims that impeachment is permitted by the Constitution and cautions against interfering with Rivers State’s political system

Wike stated this on Wednesday while welcoming governors elected on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, into his office.

Nyesom Wike, who assumed office in May 2015, has become a prominent figure in Nigerian politics. His rise to power and the subsequent establishment of his political structure are noteworthy.

Wike’s political structure is not just about winning elections but also about maintaining influence and control within the party and the state. His political structure comprises a web of loyal supporters, party members, and grassroots mobilization efforts. Here are some key components of his formidable political structure:

Wike declared that he would never submit to intimidation and that no one could ever take over his political system.

His words: “Let me thank my brothers and friends for this wonderful visit, just to appreciate Mr. President for giving me this position, and we will continue to work for Mr. President to realize his renewed hope agenda.

“I have made it clear to everybody that I am not here for any party; I am here for the interest of Nigeria and the unity of the country. I am still a PDP member, and I have never hidden my decision.

“They have talked about the crisis in Rivers State. Let me tell anybody who cares that nobody can intimidate me. It does not matter whether you go and bring thugs or you say you are Ijaw; if I want to do something, I will do it. Impeachment is not a military coup; Impeachment  is provided under the Constitution.

“About the rumors of money this and that, all that is rubbish; I just left office how many months ago, and I’m the FCT minister, which is money, but nobody can take away our political structure, no one.“I have listened to them, and for me, you cannot work, and people will begin to bring enemies; those who fought you, nobody does that.

“I hear they said I gave a limit on what he could do; I want 25 percent; these are ridiculous. I am not a political ingrate but don’t touch the political structure in Rivers State; I will not shut my eyes. “Forget about the Obedience and the Atikus, who have lost, who felt I did not support them, and those who revoke their C of O. Wike did this; Wike did that because I did not support their presidential candidates in all those things. I am not perturbed; I will only do what is right.

“ The president is our father, he has spoken we will see where it takes us, but no amount of propaganda. My conscience is clear nobody can rubbish me. I am not a person you can go to social media and say all kinds of things and you go free, so be careful I can fight back.”
