A former Commissioner of Information and Communication in Rivers State, Ogbonna Nwuke has condemned a former governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu for describing Governor Nyesom Wike as a talkative.
Recall that Aliyu in an interview on Channels TV on Tuesday had claimed that the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar did not pick Wike because of the way he talks.
Nwuke in his reaction said Aliyu does not understand the difference between politicking and administration.
The loyalist of the Rivers State Governor while speaking with Punch said, “The Wike that this man (Aliyu) is talking about has been chief of staff. As chief of staff, he never went against his principal. He spoke and did not go beyond his brief.
“This same man (Wike) had served as the Minister of Education. While serving as minister he did not also speak out of tune. Of course, he knew who the boss was, he knew what his role was and he played his role.
“And so people should draw a fine line between politicking and administration. They are not the same thing.
“Everybody who knows Wike knows that he is a team player. In trying to help build the PDP he worked with a team of committed PDP people. And together, they were able to bring the PDP from where it was, in defeat to where it is today.”
