When people cry over betrayal in politics, I drink good whiskey, says Wike


Nyesom Wike, minister of the federal capital territory (FCT), says anyone who gets into politics should be prepared for betrayal.


Speaking on Sunday at a banquet he hosted in Port Harcourt, capital city of Rivers state, on Sunday, Wike said politics and betrayal “are from the same parents”.


The immediate-past governor of Rivers said anyone who cries to him that they have been betrayed, after they are gone, he settles down to a good whiskey.


“You must have shock absorbers, that’s the only way you can survive,” he said.


 “That’s why some of you who are always crying… if you want to survive in life, you must have a shock absorber


“President Tinubu told me, when we met, he said ‘look, politics and betrayal are the same mother and father’.


“If you don’t want to be betrayed, don’t enter into politics. Don’t bother that anybody betrayed you.


 “If you are in politics, politics and betrayal are the same mother and father.


“Don’t bother, prepare yourself that it will happen. So when I see some of you [mimics crying] ‘I can’t believe this happened’. Immediately you go, I find one good whiskey and drink… this one is not prepared. I am fully prepared.


“That is what President Tinubu taught me.”


The minister’s comments came weeks after he and Siminalayi Fubara, governor of Rivers, agreed to resolve their rift.


Both men were at loggerheads over issues concerning the state.


However, they seemingly agreed to end the feud after Tinubu intervened.
