Wike Explains Reason For Bad Blood With Ireti Kingibe



Nyesom Wike, minister of the federal capital territory (FCT), has explained why Ireti Kingibe is not in good terms with him.

Kingibe, the senator representing FCT, and the minister have not had a good working relationship since they both assumed their respective offices.

In September 2023, Kingibe said Wike does not have the executive powers to make threats of demolition of “illegal buildings” in the territory.

In January, the lawmaker claimed that Wike had refused to respond to her letters and messages in the wake of the rising insecurity in Abuja.

Speaking at a media parley on Thursday, Wike said Kingibe’s anger stems from his constant companionship with Philip Aduda, her predecessor in the senate.

The minister said he could not be forced to befriend Kingibe.

“Somebody wants to be your friend. I said I don’t want to be your friend. Is it by force? The problem is that she wanted to be chairman senate committee on FCT but the senate (Godswill) president said: I’m not giving you,” Wike said.
