“Will you allow anybody to just cut you out immediately? Everybody has a base. If you take my base, am I not politically irrelevant?”
Wike said when Receiving South-South leaders at his office on Tuesday, Wike, emphasised the importance of holding his base to maintain his political relevance.
He maintained that once he loses his base as a politician, he has lost his relevance politically. Wike explained that no amount of calumny levelled against him would make him lose sleep, adding that the right thing must be done.
“All of us want to be politically relevant; all of us want to maintain our political structure,” the minister said.
