‘He is what you call a chronic liar, a serial betrayer’, Wike Hits At Babangida Aliyu


Former Governor Babangida Aliyu has gotten on the wrong side of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, who described him as a chronic liar, serial betrayal and a liability to the Peoples Democratic Party {PDP}.

Wike stated this at an interactive session with journalists on Monday in Port Harcourt, in reaction to an interview on Sunday where Aliyu allegedly said a certain “dictator in Rivers State” was behind the travails of the PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, because of a “personal ambition to either become Vice President or a political godfather.”

While responding to a question on the veiled attack by Aliyu, Wike said: “Yes, I read it in various newspapers but what makes a man is when he is bold to say ‘I am referring to Mr A; not to hide in the background that you cannot say it is you I was talking about.

“So, that shows you the character that Aliyu Babangida is.

“With utmost respect, I believe that this period is very tight for us. Problems of insecurity; how we are going to make sure Nigeria moves forward. But one has to react based on the kind of insinuations he (Aliyu) may has made.

“One, there is no political dictator in Rivers State as far as PDP is concerned. That is why today, if there is one state that PDP is sure of winning any day, any time, in this country if the election is called tomorrow, I am sure that it is Rivers State.

“That is not the case with Niger State. Babangida Aliyu is a political liability in PDP. He is not an asset to PDP.

“Now, this is a man who came out to the public to say that he sabotaged, he worked against the PDP in winning the Presidential election in 2015.

“I can quote him well; he said we, Northern Governors, worked against President Goodluck Jonathan.

“Of course, you saw the reply of the former President to him. He (Aliyu) is a rabble rouser and perpetual blackmailer.

“He is what you call a chronic liar, a serial betrayer. The funny part of life is that the same Babangida Aliyu in 2017 was one of those who opposed Secondus to be chairman of the party.

“If I have the interest to run for presidency, nobody can stop me. They are intimidated by my political credentials.”
