… says your comedy skits on TV are boring
John Alechenu, Abuja
Mr. Phrank Shaibu, Special Assistant for Public Communications to People’s Democratic Party presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, has asked Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike to outgrow the daily dose of tantrums he is dishing out to Nigerians on national television .
Shaibu said this late Tuesday in Abuja. I quote Proverbs chapter 14 verse 17 of the Holy Bible, which says, “A quick-tempered man acts foolishly…”
Shaibu said, “This may explain why a governor who was once a shining light in his party has brushed aside caution and become a laughingstock.”
Every day, according to him, Wike dances “like a village masquerade” on live television and entertains Nigerians with the same boring moves.
Shaibu said: “He is acting like a failed Tik Tok comedian who is desperately trying to amuse Nigerians with the same platitudes just because he lost the primaries and also failed to emerge as the vice presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party .
His constant crying is like the twittering of a baby being taken from its mother’s breast.
Wike’s cacophonous cry of pain and inconsolable flogging will never end, even if the proverbial breast is put back in his mouth.
“If you want to understand the true meaning of bitterness and anger, watch our dear Governor Wike every time he spends taxpayer money on his live broadcasts.
“At every event, he emerges with new episodes of dramatic performances. What all his actions have in common is that his foul verbiage and intemperate swear words are symptomatic of a pathetically disruptive mind with a deep character flaw.
“In his latest attempt to mock Waziri Atiku Abubakar after former President Olusegun Obasanjo decided to support former Governor Peter Obi, Wike again shot himself in the foot.”
The spokesman for the PDP candidate mocked the governor for trying to use President Obasanjo’s decision to support Peter Obi as evidence that Atiku is unfit for the presidency.
Shaibu said, “According to Wike’s flawed logic, President Uhuru Kenyatta’s refusal to support his Vice President, William Ruto, meant that Ruto was unfit for office. However, the great people of Kenya don’t think in a flawed way like Wike.
“Even in Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari did not support Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, despite the fact that Osinbajo had served as acting president for more than five months while Buhari was on medical vacation in London.
Bringing it closer to Rivers State means Wike’s deputy is incompetent, hence his decision to anoint Siminialayi Fubara as his successor. In fact, Wike’s domineering attitude has made his deputy obsolete, leaving no one even aware of who she is.
“What Wike failed to acknowledge during his latest tirade is that Atiku remains the only former Vice President in Nigerian history to ever be publicly endorsed by his director and this happened in 2019 when Obasanjo decided to support him.
“On the other hand, no one thinks Wike is worthy of wielding presidential power, not even his predecessors. Instead of trying to repair his damaged reputation, he keeps crying over spilled milk.
“When has an ex-president’s lack of support ever translated into eligibility for office?
“Let me say our decent behavior belongs to us – they are not dictated by whether anyone is immoderate to us. We will strike back if we have to, but God forbid we ever descend to the level of the gutter in which some people live.
“Wike really needs to grow up and respect the office he holds.”
