Kingsley Chuku, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s state legal adviser in Rivers State, has warned Daniel Bwala, a spokesperson for Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate in the last elections, to stop criticizing Nyesom Wike, the minister of the FCT.
In response to a video that went viral showing Atiku’s aide declaring that despite Atiku being a founding father of the PDP, Wike was still a member of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Chuku made his comments.
In a statement released on Saturday, he compared Bwala’s attacks on Wike to a “display of graduation of a mindset from psychology to psychosis.”
In the statement, it is stated that “that infantile remark is a figment of Bwala’s imagination” and that “I would have thought that a legal mind would do due diligence before going public with such crass misinformation,” which makes one wonder about Bwala’s mental stability and his ability to spread incorrect information.
Chief Nyesom Wike, unlike Bwala, whose legal profession is not beyond charge and bail, was practicing law in Port Harcourt before being elected as Obio/Akpor Local Government Chairman, at one of the city’s most prominent businesses, E.C. Ukala & Co.
It’s hard to imagine where Bwala picked up such a high degree of stupidity, and it’s even harder to understand why Atiku Abubakar would hire someone so obviously hostile to function as his spokesman.
We in the PDP in Rivers State, however, will always have the utmost respect for Chief Nyesom Wike and consider ourselves to be the party’s crown jewels.
“At the appropriate time, particularly after the impending exit of Bwala and the other wolves unleashed on the party by Atiku, the light of our great party, the PDP, will shine again, and Rivers State will do what it has always done for the party.”
