Nyesom Wike, the Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has stated that some people are so pretentious that they deserve to be included in the Guinness Book of World Records for this feat.

The former Rivers governor spoke at the weekend during the 60th birthday celebration of the National Chairman (Southsouth) of Chief Victor Giadom, the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

During the program, which was attended by leaders across party lines, Wike said Victor was not among such pretenders.

But the minister did not reveal the identities of the pretenders whom he described as snakes.

Wike said: “Even though we were of different parties, Victor had never gone on television to abuse any of his friends. He doesn’t allow politics to be a wedge between him and his friends. He plays politics and still remains with you.

“Victor is someone who will tell you he will be with you, and he will be with you. Victor is not a pretender. He is not one of those who have made the Guinness Book of Records as pretenders. There are those who have made the Guinness Book of Records by pretending. Nobody knew that they were snakes.

“Victor could tell you: ‘I will not do this’, and he will not do it. He will tell you: ‘I will do this’, and he will do it. I know his children and his wife.

“He has been my good friend, and I like to associate with people who remember tomorrow. I like those who will not forget when things were not good to them. Victor is not somebody who gives excuses.”

He recalled that he had known Victor as a grateful individual since he (Wike) was Chairman of Obio-Akpor Local Government Area.

He said, “He left us and went to the other side. Unfortunately for him, since he left us, he had not won any election again. It is on record since 2015. Victor had not won any election. But because he came to us again in 2023, he now won an election. Victor remembers his friends. I thank God Almighty for what he has done for his family.”

Wike said he is still a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), though the lawmakers in the state had joined the APC.
