APC Chieftain Faults Northern Members of Tinubu’s Govt over Wike

National News

A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mallam Sai’du Bobboi says Northern politicians un the cabinet of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu are not representing the North well.

He said the Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Barrister Nyesome Wike is an opportunist who came from the opposition party and displaced them and is now lording it over them.

He accused Wike of attacking some well-meaning Nigerians, especially those from the Northern extraction at will without any of the Northern politicians in the government fighting for justice.

Sai’du, from Adamawa Central Senatorial District gave the example of Messrs Integrated Facility Management Services Ltd managing the affairs of the International Conference Center (ICC) Abuja whose contract was abruptly revoked by Wike “without following due process,” stressing that Wike did that because the company is owned by a Northerner.

The Adamawa State-born politician said that if northern members in the federal cabinet cannot defend the interest of the North and any politician who has served the party well and wholeheartedly worked for the success of the party, they have become failures.

Sai’du further said that Mallam Ahmad Abubakar Moallayidi, a non-serving Senator who has represented Adamawa Southern Senatorial District in recent times became a victim of Wike’s “rascality” of attacking Northerners.

Sai’du who was the former National Chairman of the KOWA Party, said Moallayidi was one of the few individuals who sacrificed a lot in delivering President Tinubu and all he could get in return was Wike’s wickedness in attacking Northerners.

He called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to replace Wike with a politician from Rivers State who is a true member of APC as Wike’s excesses may consume everyone in the party.

“Wike from PDP is getting on the nerves of everyone in APC. He must stand up for justice and stop fighting those who worked for the party to bring Tinubu on board,” Sai’du said

Sai’du, the Vice Presidential Candidate of the KOWA PARTY in the 2015 Presidential Election With Professor Oluremi Sonayya as the only woman Presidential candidate, said the APC is developing glaring tendencies of killing her own bonafide sons and daughters.

“Many people sacrificed a lot, who against all odds served the party and spent their time, energy and resources in bringing into power the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu are today crying against marginalization because the likes of Wike are the Alpha and Omega of all that’s happening in the party,” he said

He said Northern politicians in Tinubu’s regime are dosing off, they should wake up and fight for the collective interest of the entire region.

“Your silence is too much for our liking, you are becoming stooges to a man that ought to be under your tutelage. He has silenced you and is making you irrelevant in this administration for his personal interest. Under your watch he is meting out injustice to some northern politicians and none of you can address him. You are failing us, you are not representing us well,” Sai’du added
