Chief Nyesom Wike the Executive Governor of Rivers State who maybe stopped by the courts from participating in the 2019 gubernatorial election due to discrepancies over his birth certificate is already planning on who will take over from him if he once again succeed in bulldozing himself back to the Government House.
Governor Nyesom Wike who boasted to the inner caucus and kitchen cabinet of his administration comprising mainly of Ikwerre leaders that the birthday certificate saga will surely come to nothing as he is convinced that the court will dismiss the case and that he will contest the election and win convincingly.
Eze Chukwuemeka Eze a former ally of Governor Nyesom Wike and an APC chieftain in the State further exposed that Governor Wike while interacting with his caucus and his kitchen cabinet promised to hand over power to Rt. Hon. Austin Okpara whom he described as a very loyal and trustworthy leader after the expiration of his tenure in 2023 if he wins the 2019 polls.
Eze expressed with nostalgia that this latest plot by Wike and his inner cohorts apart from frustrating the riverine area from ever occupying the seat of power in our life time negates the arrangement with Senator Magnus Abe who was promised that power will be handed over to him if he succeeds to render Rivers APC incapacitated and inability to field any candidate for the 2019 polls which Senator Abe has professionally executed without any trace of blemish and to deny him what was promised to him so that another Ikwerre son after Rt Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and Governor Wike will be imposed on Rivers State is not justifiable and unacceptable
For Governor Wike to disclose to his kitchen cabinet mainly of ikwere extraction during their meeting held in the govt house where he disclosed that he can not either trust Magnus Abe or Tamy danagogo who is said to be eyeing the governorship ticket in 2023 is regrettable, abhorable and condemnable.
Eze postulated that with this unholy step envisaged by Governor Wike for 2023, he has refused to acknowledge the fact that based on his woefull performance for the past four years that he has governed the State that the people of Rivers State have resolved unequivocally that he Wike Must Go come May 29th, 2019.
Eze regretted that some class if politicians in Rivers State have ganged up against the APC Leader in the South South region of Nigeria because of his stoic stand that power must rotate to the Riverine section of the State. Amaechi has proved that he is a just man whose love for Rivers State and her emancipation is infectious and legendary.
Eze said that Governor Wike is totally free to live in his dream world but with the adoption of governorship candidate of the African African Alliance Congress (AAC), Engr Awara Biokpomabo, by the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers state, it is advisable for Governor Wike to start packing his goods out from the Brick House as the David of Rivers State is now set to take his rightful place in the scheme of things in the state but if he doubts he can search and read how King David was anointed by Prophet Samuel
Eze urges the entire Rivera State people to seize this golden opportunity to rescue our dear state from the hands of those that have ruined and make her a mockery before the other States in Nigeria”, he said.
