‘Harbinger of Half-truth’, Secondus hits back at Wike

The crisis rocking the Rivers State chapter of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has taken a new turn with a former National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, describing the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr Nyesom Wike, as a purveyor of half-truth.

Wike in an interview had described Secondus and a former Minister of Transportation, Abiye Sekibo, as “expired politicians” for taking side with the State Governor Siminalayi Fubara..

But Secondus in a statement by his media Aide, Ike Abonyi, said during the media parley, Wike exhibited “his well-known trait of being a , harbinger of half-truths, and a mastermind of outright falsehoods just to hoodwink unsuspecting members of the public to believe him by playing to the gallery and drawing some unwarranted applause and attention.”

Last week, Secondus, Sekibo, Senator Lee Maeba, Celestine Omehia, and Austin Opara, an ex-lawmaker, had declared support for Fubara and urged President Bola Tinubu to call Wike to order over his activities in the state.

Secondus further described Wike as “a showman noted for his double-speak, twisting of facts to score some cheap political points, and someone who stands the truth on its head.”

He said the FCT Minister’s utterances during the media parley were “as rather unfortunate, more so he characterized our revered political leaders of Rivers State, casting them in a bad light by referring to them as transitional politicians, political vampires, and political buccaneers.”

“Perhaps in his haste to impugn the integrity of these elders who made him, he forgot to taste that he was referencing himself as being a man imbued with such unwholesome character,” the statement read.
