Minister of the Federal Capital Territory Nyesom Wike has told the FCT Senator Ireti Kingibe that he cannot be forced to become her friend.

Wike lambasted the Senator, accusing her of blackmailing him instead of communicating her problems through the proper channels or, better still, focusing on her oversight functions.

The former Rivers Governor stated this in an interview with journalists in Abuja, stating that the lawmaker is aggrieved because the Senate President snubbed her for the Senate Committee on FCT position.

His words: “I don’t want to be personal…she’s the Senator for FCT. She went around saying ‘oh, oh Wike is busy scraping roads…I should leave the roads till when the potholes come?

“Somebody wants to be your friend, and you say, ‘I don’t want to be your friend. Is it by force?’ The problem is that she wanted to be Chairman of the Senate Committee on FCT, and the Senate President said, ‘I’m not giving you’.

‘What are you going to supervise me? You cannot supervise me. What is her interest, and why must I see her? If I have a problem, I’ll go and see her. I don’t have a problem. Nobody can intimidate me. Look, I was a Minister before.

I became a governor of one of the most important states in Nigeria, and she thinks that the only way you can bring me is to go to Channels, TVC, saying the Minister is not carrying me along.

“I don’t have the back to carry. It’s not about blackmailing. Do the right thing. You know her problem? She ran for election with my friend Philip Aduda, and she sees me taking Philip everywhere instead of her being the Senator. Should I abandon my friend because he failed the election?”

Recall that Kingibe had accused Wike of carrying out anti-people policies in the Nigerian capital.
