Mr. Nyesom Ezebuwon Wike, has been presented as the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Rivers State governorship candidate for the February 28, 2015 election. A fatal error!
Prior to the imposition of his candidature, Wike had played the fast and furious on both the leadership and membership of the party in the State on the pretence that he was campaigning for President Goodluck Jonathan.
Before PDP could shout, “W-i-k-e!” the man had built campaign offices under the guise of Grassroot(sic) Democratic Initiative, GDI. The organisation, in the shadow of Wike, hijacked the PDP and would you want anything in the party, you must belong to the GDI. Wike played the beast, the boss and the messenger of dark powers.
While many saw him as a junior minister in the cabinet of President Goodluck Jonathan, this PDP governorship candidate was reportedly also a minister of another administration which headquarters is located in the dark. Wike is said to belong to the Ogboni Fraternity, a secret order associated with satanic worship, and has initiated several Rivers young men and women. Like the fisherman familiar with the sea and strength of baits, Wike’s familiar trap is cash, quantum cash made irresistible.
Another bait this familiar ‘fisherman’ deploys to lure his target ’fish’ is contract, multi-billion Naira contract. As junior Education minister, this PDP governorship candidate awarded billion Naira worth of contracts to those who later became the dregs of his ambition.
As Federal Minister for Education, State, under Jonathan, Wike’s only achievement was the closure of Nigerian universities and other higher institutions. Wike disrespected Professors and eventually set the stage for the death of Prof. Iyaye, one of Africa’s best.
It was under Wike that Nigeria’s education suffered bruises from which it is yet to recover. Under his watch, education in Nigeria walked on all four, students staying home for about one year. Wike cared less. It took the intervention of another minister to return members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to class rooms. For such a man to be asking for the governorship of Rivers State is asking for too much. The state is not for sale, and not at any prize that Wike may offer.
