“With the forces we have, I don’t know of anybody who can challenge us”

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has said that the 2027 election will be a walk in the park for his political camp.

Speaking during a thanksgiving service by Barinada Mpigi, a federal lawmaker, in Koroma, Tai LGA, on Sunday, Wike said the election will be easy for his camp because of the alliance it has forged with other parties.

He said that the alliance between the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State cannot be challenged.

“With the forces we have, I don’t know of anybody who can challenge us,” Wike said.


“I can tell you it is like tomorrow is 2027. For me, it is still very far. I can’t wait. The two leaderships of the party, APC is here, PDP is here; where can you find that leadership unity? Which state? It is only in Rivers that you can find that unity.

“And that is what many people don’t like. When they see people united and working together, they find how to make sure they are divided. But since we know, we have refused to be divided.

“This is the only state where the leading party will win for president, the opposition party will take national assembly in an election that was done the same time, same minute and same hour. That is uncommon.”

Wike also canvassed support for President Bola Tinubu’s economic reform initiatives, pointing out that it will not be easy to quickly turn around the country’s fortunes.

“God in his infinite mercies will continue to give us the strength to work together to support Mr president.

“So many people in this country hardly remember yesterday. We are in a rush. We have a problem, but have you asked yourself how was yesterday? Decisions of Mr President, if we are patient by the end of the day, we will get to where we want to get to,” he said.
