Nobody can challenge us in 2027 – Wike vows

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, on Sunday, expressed confidence that his political camp would defeat any opposition in the 2027 elections.


The former Rivers State Governor who has been in a face-off with his successor, Siminalayi Fubara, stated this during a thanksgiving service by a federal lawmaker, Senator Barinada Mpigi in Koroma, Tai Local Government Area of the state.


The FCT Minister claimed that the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, are united in Rivers State ahead of the next general elections.


He said, “With the forces we have I don’t know of anybody who can challenge us. I can tell you it is like tomorrow is 2027. For me it is still very far, I can’t wait.


“The two leadership 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 election that was done the same time, same minute and same hour. That is uncommon,” Wike said.

Recall that Rivers State was recently in a political crisis following alleged moves by Wike to impose decisions on the current administration.
