Wike To Umahi – You Are Wrong To Call Me A Dictator

Published

on

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Wednesday, slams his Ebonyi State counterpart, Dave Umahi, for calling him a dictator who controls the structure of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Wike also said Umahi was wrong to have said he singlehandedly imposed Uche Secondus as the National Chairman of the PDP.

The Rivers State governor made this known on Wednesday evening while featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme monitored by The PUNCH.

Controversy continues to trail the defection of Umahi from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress as stakeholders of both parties exchange verbal attacks.

Umahi, a longtime member of the PDP, had claimed he defected because of the “injustice” meted to the South-East region by the party, adding that the APC would protect the interest of the region in the 2023 presidential election.

But speaking tonight, Wike said Umahi was free to exercise his fundamental right of association but he was wrong to have threatened the PDP with his exit.

“If there is one person that has supported Umahi, it is me. But for him to threaten the party is wrong.

“Umahi wants to run for President of Nigeria but he has no right to threaten anybody. Politics is dialogue and diplomacy,” he said.

Wike added that the Southern region of Nigeria is in support of a president from the part of the country in the 2023 elections but “who tells Umahi that he is the only qualified South-East person to be president?”

The River State governor also said Umahi was “insulting the intelligence of the South-East people” by claiming to have the interest of the region at heart whilst he pursued his selfish ambition.

He added, “On the other hand, if you watch him today on Arise TV, he said one of the reasons is that Wike is a dictator. Wike controls the party. Which one do we take now? Was Wike in charge from 1999? When did Wike become relevant?”

Wike also recalled that “Umahi called me on Monday and told me he wanted to move and I said, you are free. However, check yourself, check your conscience, if you satisfied, you are free.”

Serwaa Amihere in a new post on social media has intimated that the Minister of Information and MP for Ofoase-Ayirebi constituency, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah is her best friend.


Readers would recall, somewhere in August this year, Serwaa Amihere was trending for the wrong reason following her interview with Ghana’s Information Minister on GhOne TV.

In the above-mentioned, GhOne TV’s star presenter asked the minister about “why Akufo Addo was not interested in punishing wrongdoings” citing the Ayawaso Woguon violence issue as an example.

She again indicated that various forms of punishment had been recommended to be given out to the offenders and was surprised President Akufo-Addo had not resorted to that.

In response to Serwaa’s question, the minister (who also is a well-trained journalist) quizzed her of which recommendation she was talking about. A question she’s yet to answer.

Serwaa Amihere found herself at the bad side of netizens as she was heavily trolled after the interview, causing a big disgrace to her personality.

Well, months after the embarrassing moment, she has patched up with the minister.

In a new photo she posted on Twitter, Serwaa could be seen posing with the Information Minister as they both smiled to the camera looking dapper in their respective African wears.

Captioning the photo, she wrote: “My best friend”; See the picture below;

Trump talks of ‘another four years’ during White House Christmas reception

Published

on

US leader, Donald Trump, talked during a Christmas reception at the White House on Tuesday night, December 1, 2020, about spending four more years in office — whether he was referring to January 2021 or January 2025, he didn’t clarify.

Trump lost his bid for a second term in the November 2020 presidential elections but has yet to concede to President-elect Joe Biden even though he has formally allowed his administration officials to allow the president elect’s team to begin transition.

According to reports, Trump could hold an event possibly on Inauguration Day where he will reveal his future plans as he is expected to hint at a run for 2024, leaving the door open to a comeback campaign.

Trump maintains an incredible grip on the Republican Party as GOP lawmakers have not yet recognized Joe Biden as the President-elect.

Reports from Washigton indicate Trump could announce a 2024 run when he does finally acknowledge the results even though he will dismiss the 2020 race as fraudulent.

“It’s been an amazing four years,” Trump told the room, filled with many people not wearing masks despite public health officials’ guidance amid the Covid-19 pandemic, according to CNN.

“We are trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I’ll see you in four years.” Trump added.

Trump again wrongly insisted he had won the election, saying, “But they don’t like that.” He also asked if people were watching the “fraud hearings” with his legal team — referring to acts by his attorney Rudy Giuliani has held with state legislatures in challenging the results of the election.

“Honestly, this is a disgrace,” Trump told the room.

If Trump runs in 2024 his supporters like the vice president Mike Pence, Secretary of state Mike Pompeo, former UN ambassador Nicki Halsey and even friend Kanye West could turn against him as they all want to contest for presidency in 2024.

In an interview on Sunday, Nobember 29, Trump admitted that even if Biden enters office, he will remain unconvinced he lost.

Trump told reporters last week that he’d already decided what he was doing on Inauguration Day. “I’ll be honest, I know the answer, but I just don’t want to say it yet,” he said.
