How Wike Brought Misery, Grief, Anguish To Rivers – Secondus

Prince Uche Secondus, a former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has attributed the lingering political crisis in Rivers State to the pursuit of selfish interest by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike. 

While speaking to journalists in Abuja on Sunday, Secondus said the FCT Minister was the brain behind Governor Siminalaye Fubura’s political troubles.

He claimed that the outgoing governor caused suffering, loss, and agony to the state, emphasising that the Minister has not been able to bring any federal projects to Rivers.

According to Secondus, Fubara fell out with his estranged godfather when he (Fubara) decided to prevent the looting of the state.

He explained that the political crisis currently rocking the state was orchestrated by those who demand unfettered access to the state’s finances, a demand he said the governor refused to accept.

Secondus said, “Wike has been Governor for eight years and is now Minister of the FCT.

As Minister, what has he, Wike, attracted in terms of Federal projects to our dear State since he assumed office?

“Perhaps misery, grief, and anguish. As governor he supervised the exit of investors from the state due to his draconian policies.

“He had on an occasion mentioned that he is capable of causing a crisis and he is not far from the truth, as he is causing an unfathomable crisis in Rivers State.

“Mrs Patience Jonathan and I worked for his emergence as governor, have we ever breathed down his neck? Instead, what we get is disrespect and insults.

I call on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to prevail on the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike to stop overheating the Rivers State political atmosphere and allow Fubara to work. Whatever Wike thinks he is, it must be stressed that Rivers people made him.
