“Tell me, how can one man marry over six wives and still have his brain intact?”
When money man, Ned Nwoko, a lawyer, but now popularly known as beautiful, young, Actress Regina Daniel’s husband, granted an interview to the British Broadcasting Corporation ( BBC, Pidgin), and spoke in a less than flattering manner about Governor Nyesom Wike, he quite didn’t know, perhaps, that he was waking up a sleeping lion, an internal raging volcano waking to erupt at the slightest provocation.
In that interview, Ned, a former member of the House of Representatives, but who has had series of political misfortunes since his first successful outing, also threw a brush at Peter Obi, the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party.
He said Obi, the man in whose honour a formidable third political Third Force “OBIdient”, has been founded is, at best, good to be a Minister for Economic Affairs; that he would never become Nigeria’s President.
If Obi ignored Nwoko, for now, not Governor Wike who Ned, deliberately, without any provocation ran down in the interview.
Speaking on why Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, preferred Delta State Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, as his running mate to Wike, Nwoko said it is because “Wike is a trouble maker.”
Wike, unarguably, one of the most influential PDP chieftains, and a former Presidential aspirant, had come a respectable second to Atiku at the Presidential Primary of the PDP.
Not a few people expected he would be picked as Atiku’s running mate. Indeed, both the National Working Committee of the Party, and the VP Screening Committee endorsed Wike. But Atiku picked Okowa out of the three names recommended for the position in which Wike placed first. But Ned said Wike lost because “he is a trouble maker.”
Now, Wike has responded in a devastating manner only a Wike can. “Ned Nwoko needs another young girl to marry”, Wike stated. But that was just the beginning.
Wike continued: “Ned Nwoko should tell Nigerians what he has achieved ever since he joined politics other than jumping from one little girl to another. A Pedophile coming to talk to me, a sitting Governor. He should hide his face in shame.”
Following, Wike’s response to Nwoko’s unprovoked attack.
“Ned Nwoko needs another young girl to marry.
“One man who has been busy marrying all the young girls in Nigeria came out and was talking nonsense about me in BBC news interview that Atiku dumped me because I am a trouble maker.
“Ned Nwoko should tell Nigerians what he has achieved ever since he joined politics other than jumping from one little girl to another. A Pedophile coming to talk to me a sitting Governor, he should hide his face in shame.
“I joined PDP before him, he has no political structure in PDP. I have higher stake in PDP than him. If he’s man enough let him contest for PDP Presidential primary election and watch if he will get one single vote.
“This is a man after drinking Ogogoro mixed with burukutu, he will go in search of little girls to defile. His only achievements since he joined politics is marrying different kinds of women and this is the type of person PDP Delta State gave the mandate to contest for Senatorial position in the forthcoming election. Is that how Nigeria is going to change for better?
“Ned Nwoko should face the pyramid of wives he gathered in his house and leave Wike alone. It’s obvious he no longer thinks straight like a normal human being. Tell me, how can one man marry over 6 wives and still have his brain intact?”
