A group, Niger Delta Advocacy and Good Governance Watch (NDAGGW), has called on Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state to stop ”crying more than the bereaved” and concentrate on governance.
In a statement issued on Friday by the group’s President, Kinikan Charles Worgu and Secretary, Akpobome Gibson, the group said the governor uncontrolled utterances are encouraging disunity in the region,
It claims Wike is among the Niger Delta leaders castigating Former President Goodluck Jonathan contrary secretly.
The group was reacting to the governor’s speech at the commissioning of the second Nkpogu bridge on Thursday where he said the state would not abandon the former governor like others have done.
According to the group, Wike was attacking Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa over his alleged comment questioning the performance of the former President.
”Our question is why is Wike crying more than the bereaved? It comes with the obvious feeling that he as usual wants to curry favour but sadly he has turned himself to the biblical Esau.
”We don’t know how long he will continue with this attitude but we do hope he realizes his actions and restitute,” the group statement said.
”Rather than call his brother governor (Dickson) to clarify if truly such a comment came from him, Wike is busy distorting Dickson’s patriotic remarks.
”It has become clearer that it is him that has been behind the various publications smearing the image of the Bayelsa State governor. This to us has once again exposed his antics of always playing the devil’s advocate,” it said.topics from
