Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party (nPDP), Chief Eze Chukwumeka Eze, has linked the current political ordeal of the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike as a recompense and obvious effect of karma – a force considered as affecting ones life triggered from their previous actions.
In a statement made available to media houses in Port Harcourt, Chief Eze said at some point in one’s life, reaping what you sow becomes inevitable. And the idea is called karma which in effect, purports that what goes around comes around.
Relating Karma to Wike’s ordeal, Eze said in 2013, 35 Governors went into an election to elect the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF). Nineteen (19) Governors voted for Amaechi, 16 voted for Jang. Jonathan recognized Jang. Wike celebrated this evil act.
“The same Governor Wike in the same year inspired 5 pro-Wike legislators in the Rivers State of Assembly to attempt to take a House of 32 Members with a view to impeaching Gov. Amaechi. Five (5) became greater than 27. Wike was happy and celebrated the evil and now Karma is angry and has decided to visit Wike in like manner.
“A year after some PDP Governors including Kwankwaso, Nyako, Saraki, Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu and others came to Port Harcourt to sympathiser with Amaechi over his ordeals in the hands of Jonathan and Wike, Wike influenced his boys to stone hell out of these highly placed Governors.
“By 2022 in a Church of God in Port Harcourt, while the presiding Bishop eulogized Wike and commended him for being one of the PDP Presidential candidates, Wike thundered and corrected the Bishop, ‘No! No!! My Lord Bishop, you got wrong, I am not one of the PDP Presidential Candidates but I am the PDP Presidential Candidate even before the PDP Presidential Convention where he was aptly humbled took place. Sadly he used the occasion offered to him in the Church to abuse and curse the whole tribe of Ijaw Nation and he thinks that there will not be consquences for all these actions
“In 2022, 17 PDP leaders were asked to choose a Vice for Atiku, with the influence of Rivers money, 14 voted for Wike, 3 voted for Okowa yet Atiku picked Okowa and Wike is angry. Wike is not happy and threatened to pull down the PDP.
“Karma truly is restless. Karma knows everyone’s address and will locate you, if not now, someday, somewhere and somehow”.
“What is happening to Wike at the moment is just an iceberg of the political woes that awaits him and those who collaborated with him to put Rivers State APC in her present state.
“Having said this, let me address some of the issues raised by some PDP Leaders. One may not blame Governor Ortom so much as he has no alternative than to support Wike even after stating that, “…All of us have our weak spots. Wike can be ‘something something…” How can somebody described as Something Something be a Vice President to anybody that wants to survive and succeed. He is aware that if he acts otherwise Wike will ask for refunds of hundreds of millions he dashed to Benue State Government and the roads he constructed in his State even when most of the roads in Rivers State are in deplorable state.
“We are all aware that hunger is seriously affecting many Nigerians so one should not blame Fayose in his own funny stand. Fayose should devise another strategy to ask for funds from POS Africa . WIKE has already declared to stay with PDP and work for her success come 2023.
“Governor Wike support for the illegality occasioned by the Jonathan’s administration to Jang during the tussle between him and Amaechi for the leadership of the Governor’s Forum may have played a great role in the utterances of the elder stateman not to consider how Wike abused Atiku Abubakar and wants Atiku to appoint him as his Vice. If Atiku had selected Wike as his Vice that would have been one of the wonders of this world.
“I sincerely sympathize with those asking for Okowa to be dropped for Wike. They are great Jokers because they are totally ignorant of who Atiku I as a man who doesn’t or in the habit of weakening his voice or words no matter the level of pressure”, Eze stated.
Continuing the party chieftain said he was disappointed that most of the people claiming to love Wike more than every other person are not actually in love with Wike but the Treasury of Rivers State and to their dismay, Atiku Abubakar dashed their hopes in this regard and saved Rivers State from immenient liquidation and bankruptcy and every Rivers man must return thanks to Atiku for salvaging the little remaining of the state fund.
