- Governor Nyesom Wike berates APC leaders for allegedly straining the peace in Rivers state
- Wike accuses the APC leaders of desperately playing anti-Rivers politics with the visit of Yemi Osinbajo to Rivers state
Governor Nyesom Wike of River state has blasted the minister of transport, Rotimi Amaechi and leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state for organising another stakeholders meeting with acting president, Yemi Osinbajo, a day after the town hall meeting held in government house.
Wike in an address to former APC members who defected to PDP in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, February 14, said the meeting which was organised by the leaders of the APC in the state was aimed at straining the peace in the state.
The governor, in a statement by his special assistant on electronic media, Simeon Nwakaudu, accused the APC leaders of desperately playing anti-Rivers politics with the visit of Yemi Osinbajo.
He said: "Satan will never sleep. Satan will always be at work. Satan always wants to turn light into darkness.
“When we held the stakeholders meeting, even the Minister of Transportation was there. But as a you know, a chameleon will always be a chameleon. When you see agents of Lucifer you will know.
“Just because the Acting President slept in Rivers State and went round our projects, then confirmed that this man is Mr Projects, they suddenly became troubled."
"Agents of Lucifer in trying to cause confusion, persuaded the Acting President that there will be need for him to talk to APC Members. I have no problems with that. Mr Acting President is a member of the APC. But governance is governance. When they got there, they renamed the APC meeting as stakeholders meeting. Shame , shame."
Wike asked the APC leaders in the state to go for psychiatric test.
The governor said that he will continue to play mature politics, unlike the era of Rotimi Amaechi when he repeatedly desecrated the office of the president, refusing to accord Goodluck Jonathan the respect due his office.
