The Executive Chairman of Ikwerre local government Area of Rivers State, Engr Samuel Nwanosike, replied to Dr. Reuben Abati over his unguarded statements, he used on the executive Governor of Rivers State, Barrister Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.
He says It’s a shame that we have gotten to a level in this country where men who are supposed to say the truth will wake up at midnight because they have a platform, they have the opportunity, and then want to bully other Nigerians who are eminently qualified, even more, qualified than them into a position that will suit them.
Dr. Abati raised some critical issues, but I’m wondering why the first-class material like him failed to proffer any solution to the issues bedeviling Nigeria.
A man who started writing and practicing journalism in 1985, made the first class at the University of Calabar. It’s a great achievement but was defeated by Lai Muhammad.
Dr. Abati bullied former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to appoint him as Presidential Spokesman yet he connived with the opposition party, APC, to ensure Dr. Goodluck Jonathan’s failure.
Between 2012 and 2013 President Jonathan was considered the best and Nigeria was adjudged one of the fastest growing economies in the world, yet Lai Mohammed came and sold lies to Nigerians not to appreciate the good works of Jonathan and this Reuben Abati couldn’t do anything to sell the good works of President Goodluck Jonathan because he doesn’t have the capacity.
Dr. Reuben Abati is one of those who sabotaged the victory of President Goodluck Jonathan. That’s why Jonathan lost that election.
Dr. Abati’s failure brought us the destruction of lives and property we have in Nigeria, today.
If Abati has chosen to become Atiku Abubakar’s political puppet, that’s fine but he should not wear a suit and Chun out lies to Nigerians because his paymaster, Atiku Abubakar, wants to press Nigerians into allowing him to manage the Nigerian economy since he believes that being the President of Nigeria is his life ambition.
Rivers State Governor, Chief Barr Nyesom Wike said that a leader like Atiku Abubakar, the former Vice President of Nigeria, lied to the Nigerian public about him and I’m happy that one Osita Okechukwu justified Gov Wike’s assertion when he called Alhaji Atiku Abubakar a liar during Dr. Reuben Abati’s Morning Show, yesterday.
Governor Ezenwo Nyesom Wike has done well as an Ikwerre man, has done well as a Rivers man, has done well as a South-South man, and represents the image of the South-South people.
Ezenwo Nyesom Wike did well as a Chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government, two-time Chairman, built wonderful infrastructures for Obio/Akpor people and made Obio/Akpor people understand what the dividends of democracy are, and touched all their wards as a sitting local government chairman.
Chief Wike grew to the level of becoming President of the Commonwealth Association of Local Government Chairmen. Outside that, Ezenwo Nyesom Wike served in the same administration with Reuben Abati as a Minister. He didn’t shop for it.
The legacies of Nyesom Ezenwo Wike as Nigeria’s Junior Minister of Education and even Senior Minister of Education still speak volumes and remain evergreen. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has replicated his tremendous achievements in Rivers State
Dr. Abati should advise his principal properly. A man that won a presidential ticket and wants to win an election should not send attack dogs to attack those who will gather votes for them.
In Rivers State, Nyesom Wike is in charge. In South-South, Ezenwo Nyesom Wike is in charge. Ezenwo Nyesom Wike remains the star man of South-South politics and we will continue to follow his directions. His leadership quality is okay for us”.
I expect Dr. Abati to be upright and truthful instead of attacking and bullying some others because they have easy platforms.
The outburst of Dr. Reuben Abati is a result of his inability to understand the discussion that happened between Ezenwo Nyesom Wike and his team.
As Nigerians, we will not allow anybody come to the media to deceive us, lie to us just to become whatever he/she wants to become in the country and if people who are supposed to checkmate these individuals continue to play puppets in their hands, then it’s a shame ” He added”
