Wike Tells Ethnic Nationalities Interested in Governorship Seat what to Do to Promote Their Interest

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has called on ethnic nationalities seeking for the Governorship Position to liaise with others, rather than take actions that will engender disunity in the state.

He urged the Kalabari Ethnic Nationality and their leaders to be strategic in their quest for Governorship.  He said the resort to needless propaganda will not work in their favour.

He spoke on Wednesday during a Solidarity Visit by the Leaders and People of Kalabari Ethnic Nationality at the Government House,  Port Harcourt.

He said: “You must have a strategy to get the Governorship Position.  Quietly sit down with other ethnic nationalities and work towards the seat.

“The Governorship seat cannot be gotten through the radio. It cannot be gotten through falsehood.  There must be a strategy in place. Nobody  gives you  the Governorship Seat as a gift.”

Governor Wike said that the Governorship Position in Rivers State is difficult to access because Abuja and other key leaders are interested in planting people.

“Abuja is interested,  other states are also interested in who becomes the Rivers State Governor.  They want to plant a Governor of Rivers State.  God will not allow it”, he said.

Governor Wike reiterated that no single ethnic nationality in Rivers State can make  a Governor.  He said it takes the cooperation of all ethnic nationalities for a Governor to emerge. Commenting on OML 25, Governor Wike said that the owners of Belema Oil embarked on deliberate falsehood to mislead Kalabari people on the role played by the Rivers State Government to resolve the impasse.
