Unyielding Minister Wike in Rivers Saga: The Fight for Political Integrity


In the wake of the ongoing strife in Rivers State Politics, Minister Wike has made a resolute commitment to defeat those he labels as “political harlots.” The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and former Governor of Rivers State, Wike, has been vocal about his intentions during a Thanksgiving event organized by Kingsley Chinda, the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives.

Wike’s assertive speech at the event was a direct response to the political challenges that have been mounting in the region. He reminisced about the time when he was under pressure to choose a successor. “One of the very best I would have presented would have been Kingsley Chinda,” Wike revealed, hinting at the potential succession plans that were thwarted by political scheming.

The minister sharply criticized certain Ikwerre politicians for their lack of loyalty and opportunistic behavior. “No real Ikwerre man says that and goes back,” he stated, referring to the cultural norms of commitment within his community.

The political landscape in Rivers State has been marked by intense rivalry and confrontations. Wike’s recent statements have only intensified the atmosphere, signaling that he is prepared for the battles ahead. His determination to overcome his political foes is unwavering, and he remains a formidable figure in the state’s political arena.

Wike’s rhetoric is not just about political bravado; it is also a reflection of the deep-seated cultural values that influence the politics of Rivers State. The reference to Ikwerre tradition and the metaphor of wrestling drums signify the readiness for a political showdown that is deeply rooted in the local culture.
