Eze Responds To Wike’s Blatantly Boastful Remarks Regarding The 2027 Elections, Demonstrating His Typical Insensitivity To The Plight Of Starving Nigerians

… Describes His Mannerisms at these Trying Times as Ridiculous, insensitive, callous, careless, unfortunate and an attempt to incite the angry and hungry Nigerians against Tinubu’s Administration.

“…. Today, Nigerians are eating from the dustbin while in Lagos, Nigerians are being treated like animals while struggling for a hundred Naira loaf of bread and two tubers of yam but to Wike what matters most is how to rig the 2027 general elections. May God pity him…”

Erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party (nPDP) and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze says it smacks of ridicule and manifest insensitivity to the plight of Nigerians who have been reduced to the status of hunger-stricken refugees in their land, for the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike to begin to talk about 2027 elections and how no one can challenge him in Rivers State at the polls when the administration under which he serves has thrown the country into the darkest period of economic woes in the annals of her history.

“It is ridiculous that while many Nigerians are dying in droves because of the hardship facing us as a nation, an opportunist like Chief Nyesom Wike the incumbent Minister of FCT in the Thanksgiving Service in honour of Senator Barinada Mpigi would be talking about the 2027 general elections and how nobody will be in a position to challenge him and his Group.”

In a report titled, “I Don’t Know Who Can Challenge Us In 2027” Wike highlighted that with the alliances his political camp has formed, the 2027 elections will be a walk in the park for them.

The minister spoke of his readiness for the 2027 elections during a thanksgiving service by Senator Barinada Mpigi in Koroma, Tai Local Government Area of Rivers State on Sunday.

“With the forces we have I don’t know of anybody who can challenge us. I can tell you it is like tomorrow is 2027. For me it is still very far, I can’t wait. The two leaderships of the party, APC here, and PDP here; where can you find that leadership unity? Which state? It is only in Rivers that you can find that unity.

“This is the only state where the leading party will win for the president, the opposition party will take national assembly in an election that was done the same time, same minute and same hour. That is uncommon,” Wike said.

In a statement made available to the media, Chief Eze said with the confidence the FCT Minister spoke on how he intends to rig elections in 2027, it is either the former Governor no longer operates from Nigeria or must be operating either from the Moon or the Sun not to observe the level of protests all over the country or the Collapse of our Naira or the failure of our economy and the attendant hunger ravaging Nigerians. All of these happened during a misplaced thanksgiving service by Senator Barry Mpigi who himself has no legacy or a tangible project to show for his wasted years in the Senate

Eze said that given the reality on the ground, Nigeria has become a living hell on Earth as Food, Cement, and Fuel prices continue to hit the Roof. He said following the exorbitant cost of rice, garri, beans and other food items, Nigerians now go to bed each night hungry and this reality should concern any reasonable Nigerian who is part of the government of the day like Nyesom Wike – the FCT Minister.

As at the time Wike was making his outlandish utterances a litre of fuel was sold at N720, a bag of rice for N75,000, a basin of Ikwerre Garri N12,000 and N12,000 for a bag of cement.

It calls for concern that in a situation of economic hardship such that we have fallen into, where 46 Professors and others in UNIABUJA, FUTminna according to ASUU died due to attendant hardship, valueless opportunists like Wike would be talking about elections without being mobbed.

Eze quoted the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Abuja zone of expressing deep sorrow on Monday over the loss of several of its members due to economic hardship, inadequate remuneration, and unfavourable working conditions prevailing in the country.

According to a report from ASUU, at least 46 academics have passed away in universities within the Abuja zone, including the University of Abuja, Federal University of Technology Minna, Federal University Lafia, Nasarawa State University Nasarawa, and Ibrahim Babaginda University, Lapai.

The union highlighted the recent demise of Professor Johnson Oyero, an esteemed scholar in Fisheries at the Federal University of Technology, Minna, attributing his death to the lack of access to quality medical facilities.

In another development, Eze highlighted how Muhammad Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto lamented the economic hardship in the country, saying Nigerians are angry and hungry.

The traditional ruler spoke at the 6th executive committee meeting of the Northern traditional rulers council (NTRC) which held in Kaduna state

“To make matters worse, we are faced with rising levels of poverty of most of our people; a lack of normal sources of livelihood for the common man to have even a good meal a day,” he said.

“I have said it so many times and at so many fora that, things are not okay in Nigeria and of course, things are not okay in the north.

“To me, this government is a continuation of the former government; it is the same party.

The Labour will soon go on a two-day nationwide protest, the Petroleum sector with the Drivers threatening to go on strike with Nigerians dying in droves our children being withdrawn from School and a fellow who calls himself a leader for lack of what to do is here preaching to Nigerians with guts on how he intends to win the 2027 general elections thinking that Nigerians are fools.

Today, Nigerians are eating from the dustbin while in Lagos, Nigerians are being treated like animals while struggling for a hundred Naira loaf of bread and two tubers of yam but to Wike what matters most is how to rig the 2027 general elections. May God pity him!

In conclusion, Eze describes Wike’s Mannerisms at these trying times as ridiculous, insensitive, callous, careless, unfortunate and an attempt to incite the angry and hungry Nigerians against Tinubu’s Administration.

While urging citizens to continue in prayers with the hope that things will get better, Eze called on Nigerians to be wary of Wike as a common enemy who does not mean well for the country and her people.
