Adoki Tonye Smart, a member of the Rivers State House of Assembly who represents Port Harcourt Constituency 2, reprimanded Sheikh Ahmad Abubakar Gumi for his remarks about Nyesom Wike, the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The member said that Wike is in complete control of the FCT and that the FCT’s days of sponsored banditry, criminality, and kidnapping are finished.
Gumi and others were admonished by Smart to stop promoting hatred and making derogatory remarks about Wike and the people of the south.
Smart bemoaned that some northerners feel as though the country is theirs in a statement released in Port Harcourt yesterday.
He was furious that Gumi, whose state produces nothing, had the audacity to call for the FCT minister’s dismissal.
He said: “Those eras of planning with bandits and criminals to kidnap and share ransoms with them are over. Eze Nyesom Wike is the Minister of FCT, deal with it. See how foolish this man sounds.
“Some of these Northerners really believe that this country belongs to them. No wonder they saw it as their right for a Northerner to take over from another Northerner.
“For your information Gumi, that era is gone. A man that his state produces nothing for the country, sits in his dirty corner to ask for Wike’s sack as FCT Minister because he (Wike), received the Israeli Ambassador to Nigeria in his office.
“Though we have been expecting this frustrating statement long ago. These bandits Sympathizers can no longer hide their frustrations since Wike was appointed as FCT Minister. That is why Gumi could not endure and have voiced out.
“FCT is built and maintained by the proceeds from Niger Delta. We have not complained. You want to enjoy our money, but you don’t want us to be FCT Minister. Shame on you, Gumi.”
