OPEN LETTER TO MR. PRESIDENT, FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA DR. GOODLUCK JONATHAN ON DAYLIGHT ROBBERY AND STARK REALITY CALLED CASTRATION OF RIVERINE PEOPLE OF RIVERS STATE: CALL NYESOM WIKE TO ORDER.
Rivers State was created on May 27, 1967 and on May 30, 1967, Biafra was declared. It was as if the sina qua non for the declaration of Biafra was State creation by Gowon. So, it was. It is narrowing 50-year-old exercise and nobody from the riverine has been duely elected as the Executive Governor of Rivers state, except probably Ada George whose regime was still born. I don't' know much of Ada George. But what is obvious is the muzzling of opposition in Rivers State by Nyesom Wike who is hell-bent on becoming the Executive Governor of Rivers State no matter whose ox is gored, no matter who dies and who lives.
Nyesom Wike is from the same community, if not same village with the incumbent Governor of Rivers – Chief Rotimi Amaechi. Probity or Equity or Justice or Fairplay or name it, would only allow power to shift to the riverine people after the upland has ruled sixteen (16) years in Odilli and Amaechi. I know that Ikwerre people produce oil as well as other mainland areas like Ndoni and Etche. But the bulk of the oil appear to come from the riverine. Shouldn't they at least be allowed to govern Rivers State, even if at least for four (4) years?
What is wrong with it Mr. President? What is wrong with it? I am not in PDP, not in APC, not in APGA, not in any party. I am not. I am not a card-carrying member of any party in Nigeria, but only a human rights activist, and so, I say my mind as pure and dazzling and punchy and raw-acidic as it may appear to be.
It is your wife-the First Lady: Dame P.I.G. Jonathan that is naturally from Okirika that should more fight to ensure Power shift. Contrariwise, it is even the Governor Amaechi that is championining this equity-must-hold-in-Rivers thing. What could prompt the illustrious First lady to tow this line? It benumbs many a critic. The truth is that Nyesom Wike has confused our Honourable First Lady to believe him who is a bundle of lies. Nyesom Wike: could he be porn in political chess game? From where has water entered the fluke of the pumpkin as Igbos would ask? How could the tiger give both to a fearful child as Igbos would ask? The English man says: what is good to the goose is also good to the gander. The Igboman would say if you treat a child as his mates, he becomes happy. Power must necessarily shift to the riverine in Rivers State come 2015. PDP must cancel the election of Nyesom Wike and pick a riverine candidate or 100% lose election. Let Rivers people rise up in full support of Governor Rotimi Amaechi and 100% vote for APC and 100% vote out PDP in Rivers State in 2015. This nonsense, trash, hoodlumic aberration must stop in Nigeria.
