Nyesom Wike Will Not Renege On His Decision – Igbini

Emmanuel Igbini, a former governorship candidate of the Peoples Redemption Party, PRP, in Delta State, and an ally of the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja, Nyesom Wike, has said Wike, the former Rivers State governor will continue to back his successor, Siminalayi Fubara for his eight bid despite the cold war between them.

He noted this in a statement in Warri, Delta State, that: “Nyesom Wike will not and will never renege on his decision and determination to see that Governor Fubara emerged as governor and continues as governor of Rivers State for uninterrupted two terms of eight years (May 29, 2023 – May 29, 2031),  not minding that Wike rightly feels heartbroken right now by few political misjudgments of Fubara.

“My dear brother, former Governor Wike is a man I have several times described and continue to describe as a good and kind-hearted man to others. He is not a man to betray others. He is a man who, when convinced, will put his life on the line to defend others.

“He stays committed to his pledge to others no matter the storm that may come even when he is betrayed by those whom he sacrificed for.

“Therefore, let nobody mislead my brother, Governor Fubara, to believing that former governor, Wike, will work against him being governor of our Rivers State for the next eight years.”

To resolve the lingering dispute between Wike and Fubara, esteemed religious leaders in Rivers State have intervened.

According to Ambassador Desmond Akawor, the State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the apparent conflict between the governor and the minister will soon be settled, characterizing the miscommunication as a typical political occurrence between two people.

Speaking at a meeting with PDP leaders of the LGA parties and the State Executive Committee at the party headquarters in Port Harcourt, Akawor said that some bishops and other men of God in the state have intervened in the dispute to bring the two men back to amicable terms. He revealed that not one of the performers was content with the circumstances.

He said: “We may see the atmosphere in the state as disturbing. No, it is a normal thing in life. It is only what God has done that has perfection.

“There is a crisis, but the important thing is the ability to solve the problem. This problem will be settled. The clergy is intervening. At the end of the day, a solution will come.”
