Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike

The Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike has visited his Chief Victor Giadom, his longtime political ally and the South-South Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Giadom hosted the former Rivers governor at Bera community in Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers state on Saturday.

Wike was accompanied on the visit by leaders of both APC and the PDP, including two former chairmen of Rivers PDP, Prince Felix Obuah and Ambassador Desmond Akawor.

The visit has sparked rumour of Wike’s possible defection to the APC.

Speaking during the visit, Wike said, “I didn’t come here for politics. I came here to visit my friend, Giadom.

“Let nobody misinterpret why I came here. That is why I came with PDP and APC leaders. It is a private visit to my friend.

“I have never been in doubt about your capacity to relate with your people. Politics is about impact. If you want to be a successful politician you must impact your people so that when you call them they will answer you.”

Wike also took an apparent swipe at his estranged political godson and Governor of Rivers, Siminalayi Fubara.

“Forget about these hungry noisemakers on the road.

“When the time comes, we will know who is in charge and who is not in charge. There is a time for everything. This is not time for politics,” the former governor said.
