Federal Capital Territory, (FCT) Minister, Nyesom Wike, has lambasted Senator Ireti Kingibe, representing the Federal Capital Territory, saying she would lose the support of the people in the next election.

Wike spoke at the Mabushi Bus Terminal flag-off in Abuja on Monday, criticizing Kingibe for not collaborating with the FCT Administration and instead expressing anger over praise for the President Bola Tinubu administration.

He challenged Kingibe’s legislative record, asking how many bills she had sponsored to improve education and healthcare.

Wike further expressed pride in his achievements as FCT Minister and warned Kingibe that she would fail if she ran for office in 2027.

Kingibe had earlier criticized Wike’s administration on a television programme, denying being his friend.

Wike’s remarks were a response to Kingibe’s criticism, and he accused her of being out of touch with the needs of her constituents.

He also stated that his administration had achieved significant milestones in a short period, despite Kingibe’s lack of support.

Wike said: “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.

“So, People should be able to come out and be able to accept the truth. We are not begging for anybody to become our friend; we have so many friends that we cannot even carry along. So how can we go and be begging people to become our friends. We are not interested in that.

“If you are angry that people are praising us, by next year your BP level will go very high because the praises you would see would be too much”.
