We Will Know Who Is In Charge of Rivers State Soon, Wike Shakes Table

We Will Know Who is In Control of Rivers State Soon, Wike Shakes Table
Nyesom Wike
The immediate former Governor of Rivers State and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has vowed that shortly everyone will know who is in control of Rivers politics.

Wike disclosed this when he visited the South-South Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Victor Giadom.

Wike, who has been nursing a political rift with Giadom over the years, reunited with the APC leader at Giadom’s home in Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers state on January 6.

Although speculation has trailed the meeting between Giadom, a leader of the APC, and Wike, a national leader of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Wike maintained that his meeting with Giadom is personal and has no political affiliation.

Wike who spoke on the aim of the visit said, “I didn’t come here for politics. I came here to visit my friend, Giadom. Let nobody misinterpret why I came here. That is why I came with PDP and APC leaders. It is a private visit to my friend.”

Speaking about Giadom, Wike said: “I have never been in doubt about your capacity to relate with your people. Politics is about impact. If you want to be a successful politician you must impact on your people so that when you call them they will answer you.”

Speaking about the political imbroglio in Rivers State, he said: “Forget about these hungry noisemakers on the road. When the time comes, we will know who is in charge and who is not in charge. There is a time for everything.

“This is not time for politics. When the time comes, we will know who is who. If you like abuse me as you want. If you like employ everybody on social media. I have never bothered myself one day to know who is abusing me. Politics will come. We didn’t contest the election based on social media. We spoke to the people, they listened and believed in us”.

Speaking on his realignment with Giadom, he said: “Party will come and go and friendship will remain. We have made our mistakes, we are all humans but friendship remains.

“When I was appointed a Minister, Victor Giadom led a team to congratulate me. It does not matter where you belong what is important is the interest of Rivers. If you want to be a successful politician, greedy ones will not like you. Nobody has done well in politics without enemies. Those who hate you are in the minority. Those who love you are in the majority.

“When I was governor, Nigeria heard about Rivers State. That is what I have always preached. So, nobody should be afraid. I have no regrets when I stood by with my colleagues and friends that the presidency must go to the south.

“There was nothing I was not offered. But I said no. That is why I will continue to support the government of Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu. As I am going back home, I am going with the satisfaction that my friend is back.

“This visit I came today will cause a lot of trouble. Some people will start visits now. Follow who knows the road. Continue to support Victor and all your leaders who mean well to all of you.

“For the first time in history, Ogoni man is the chairman of works. I am happy that Ledum Mitee is a member of the NNPCL. Let nobody do community problems. When you do that development will not come.”

Among those who accompanied Nyesom Wike to the House of Giadom are serving senators, House of Representatives members from Rivers, APC, and PDP leaders, and two former PDP chairmen in Rivers, Felix Obuah and Amb. Desmond Akawor, PDP’s South-South Chairman, Chief Dan Orbih, former PDP National Secretary, Sam Anyanwu, and various local dignitaries including traditional rulers, local government chairpersons, and youth and women’s groups.
