APC blasts Wike Over His Comments On Umahi
Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has been characterized as power-drunk by the Ebonyi State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), which has urged him to resolve problems of administration in his state.
The Ebonyi APC’s chairman, Stanley Okoro-Emegha, stated in a statement on Sunday that Wike’s reaction towards Governor Dave Umahi over the recent court ruling to dismiss him from office was unjustified.
Remember that Umahi and his deputy, Kelechi Igwe, were fired by Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja for defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) (APC).
Wike, on the other hand, is a primitive governor who makes wild statements and tries to intimidate everyone, according to the APC Ebonyi branch.
“The Rivers State Governor was reacting to the very unjust and widely condemnable Federal High Court ruling which recently sacked Governor Umahi and his Deputy, Dr. Kelechi Igwe,” he began.
Wike, according to Emegha, should be appropriately placed in his position, and he would have been chastised even more if Governor Umahi had not told them not to discuss concerns with him.
He also backed Umahi, saying that the embattled Ebonyi Governor had done absolutely nothing wrong and that Wike and others must face the facts and move on rather than attempting to stir up emotions.
“Governor Umahi has clearly surpassed the sleeping Governor of Rivers state in all indexes of performance both in private life and in public service,” he added.
“It speaks to the malaise in the Nigeria judiciary, and further lends credible credence to the insinuations that our judicial system are indeed being manipulated by some powerful forces against the ordinary Nigerians.”
‘Having said that , Nigerians are however invited to note that the current travails of Governor David Umahi has nothing whatsoever to do with offending any law, but a clear case of political enemies persecuting a performing Governor because of his rising political profile as indicated by the utterances of Governor Wike.
“Wike should know that it is God that lifts and not mortals like him. So, no amount of his evil plots will be portent enough as to be able to dislodge nor remove a serving Governor who was single-handedly installed by God Himself for a unique purpose for His people.
“Wike and his co- travelers should go to hell and burn to ashes if they cannot accept the verdict of God which has clearly positioned Governor Umahi as the most qualified and preferred aspirant to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023, and stop behaving like sadists who are hell-bent on equalizing misery.”
The Ebonyi APC Chairman added that “If not that Governor Umahi has warned us against attacking any leader or Governor on his behalf, I would have properly situated the despicable character in Rivers State Government House who now masquerade as a Governor.
“However Governor Wike is once again advised to focus his attention on solving the numerous developmental challenges bufetting his Rivers State, and stop dissipating energy sounding like the godfather of the Nigeria body-polity”.
