Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has taken a swipe at a former member of the House of Representatives Ned Nwoko over the latter’s recent comments that PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar chose Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, not Wike, as running mate because Wike is a “trouble maker.”
Wike said in a statement on Thursday that Nwoko, who is married to young actress Regina Daniels, and has other young wives, has no moral right to criticise him.
He said, “One man who has been busy marrying all the young girls in Nigeria came out and was talking nonsense about me in BBC news interview that Atiku dumped me because I am a trouble maker.
“Ned Nwoko should tell Nigerians what he has achieved ever since he joined politics other than jumping from one little girl to another. A paedophile coming to talk to me a sitting governor should hide his face in shame.
“I joined PDP before him, he has no political structure in PDP. I have a higher stake in PDP than he. If he’s man enough let him contest for PDP presidential primary election and watch if he will get one single vote.
“This is a man after drinking Ogogoro mixed with burukutu, he will go in search of little girls to defile. His only achievement since he joined politics is marrying different kinds of women and this is the type of person PDP Delta State gave the mandate to contest for Senatorial position in the forthcoming election. Is that how Nigeria is going to change for the better?
“Ned Nwoko should face the pyramid of wives he gathered in his house and leave Wike alone. It’s obvious he no longer thinks straight like a normal human being. Tell me, how can one man marry over 6 wives and still have his brain intact?”
Nwoko’s BBC interview has raised dust in many quarters. The Delta North PDP senatorial candidate also came under criticism for saying Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi cannot win the election because he does not have the structure required to do so.
