Don’t get involved in politicians’ fight uninformed, Wike warns


FCT Minister Nyesom Wike has warned against getting involved in fights between politicians without being informed of the cause.

The minister made this known on Sunday while addressing the congregation during a thanksgiving ceremony for George Kelly Alabo, the immediate past Commissioner for Works at the Kings’ Assembly in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

“Don’t get involved in any fight between two politicians without knowing the real cause of the quarrel,” Wike said.

“In any facet of life, there are rules and they must be obeyed. As a pastor, there are rules you must follow, so also as politicians, we must follow rules. While I was governor I followed those rules, and that’s why I was able to succeed.”

He added that, “When I was running for governor, I was invited that some elders want to see me, when I got there I saw only two people. Just two of them constituted themselves as elders over the whole state. Now they’ve come back again as elders, don’t mind them.”

The minister also went on to question the agitation, saying those making it an Ijaw thing were ill-informed.

“When we wanted to go for it we were not shouting asawana, now they’re carrying flags and shouting asawana up and down. Are you people aware that Mr President actually called us privately and told us what to do, he didn’t do it and now Mr President then said okay, the larger house should come and they’re saying he does not have the constitutional right to do that.”

In attendance were some of the 27 lawmakers believed to be loyal to Wike as well as some of the recently resigned commissioners.

KaftanPost can report that Rivers State was thrown into crisis as a result of the political fallout between Governor Siminalayi Fubara and his predecessor, Wike.
