Wike Weeps As PDP Blocks His Gubernatorial Aspirations by jt2010: 2:52pm On Jul 07, 2014
The battle of wits in the Rivers PDP has finally dealt a blow on the supervising Minister for Education, Nyeso Wike as he and his men wept uncontrollably on Tuesday night when the Minister broke the news that he has been asked to drop his governorship ambition by the powers that be.
According to Prince Chidi Weli the Spokesperson of RIVERS PROGRESSIVE FORUM, “it was not clear on what eventually led to this decision by the Presidency and the PDP to stop Chief Nyesome but unconfirmed reports from a source who was privy to the meeting said the internal crisis within the state chapter of the PDP was largely responsible for the Minister’s current woes.
Wike who was seen as the man responsible for the widening of gaps between the Presidency and the Rivers State Governor had hijacked the Party machinery from Gov. Amaechi who had trusted him with the political aspect of his government was shocked when the state Party Chairman, G.U. Ake was replaced by Felix Obuah who was never part of the Congress that voted Ake into office. It was alleged that Goround as he is popularly called had travelled out of the country two days before the Congress. But in what looks like a scene from Nollywood, Obuah, a close ally of Ake was the willing tool in the hands of Wike and Prince Uche Secondus to nail Amaechi at all cost.
It was gathered that Ake actually won the election but resumed duty at the State Party Secreariat without a Certificate of Return from the National Secreariat of the Party. That thud afforded these men the opportunity to append Obuah’s name on the Certificate which they presented in Court. Surprisingly, the Court refused to admit a video evidence of the Congress tendered by Ake’s counsel. INEC officials were not left out in this conspiracy.
At the end, Ake lost out to a man who did not even pick a nomination form and was not part of the Congress. As Ake lost, so did Amaechi.
The stage was then set for the frustration of Amaechi out of the Pary. Wike did not stop to show his disdain for his former boss and ally. He became the hatchet man for the job of pulling Anaechi down in defence of his new found boss, President Jonathan.
He was given a free hand to run the Ministry of Education, after the unceremonious exit of the Minister. Choice contracts were awarded to cronies and supporters even at tge expense of poor quality jobs. In some cases, it was alleged that the jobs were not executed but payments were made.
The failed attempt to impeach Amaechi also proved another opportunity for millions of naira to exchange hands. While the siege on Rivers state lasted with the alleged support of the First Lady, the President kept mum.
But Wike may have bitten more than he could chew when his crony, Obuah publicly announced Wike’s ambition to succeed Amaechi. Using the GDI, he hijacked the party structure while he trasversed the nooks and crannies of the state. He moved unchallenged until Elemchukwu Ogbowu dared him. Ogbowu said it was morally wrong for Wike, an Ikwerre man to succeed his kinsman, Amaechi. The former lawmaker said the proper thing was for power to shift to the Riverine people of Kalabari or to the Upland people of Ogoni.
That audacity to challenge Wike and Obuah incurred a suspension and later an expulsion hammer on Ogbowu and a few others with him. But Ogbowu was not done yet as he galvanised the support of those who were against the plot to enthrone Wike and together they petitioned the NWC of the PDP led by Adamu Muazu.
The pressure was on Wike to recall the men and drop his ambition, but as it is said, whom the gods want to kill, they first make mad; Wike would not bulge, rather he went ahead to sponsor his crony, Chukwuemeka Aaron to obtain a suspicious Court order restraining the PDP National from dissolving or changing the Rivers Exco led by Obuah. This was a move aimed at stopping the Party from changing the Exco during the forthcoming mini – convention of the party in July.
Unknown to Wike, that was his death nail as that action angered the Party leadership as well as the President.
Last week, he was asked to vacate the Order but he chose to ‘fight back’, more so when he had spent so much in pursuing his ambition.
Now, it is obvious that he would be dropped from the Federal Executive Council, having tendered his resignation notice; it is just enough reason for him and his foot soldiers to weep.
Our source also gathered that the meeting which lasted into the wee hours of the morning were brainstorming on how best to break the news to the public. The group agreed that a Press Statement would be issued claiming that the Minister never had any such ambition.

Is Nyesom Wike not the minister of education? Shouldnt he be concerned about how to resolve the lingering polythecnic lecturers strike that has lasted for almost eleven months?

Rivers State Politics is very Straight forward and to the point.

1) Rivers State Governor is on the PDP platform.
2) Next Governor Cannot be Ikwerre.

Anyone who does not obey these two Guiding Principles is a loser.

I dey laff...
Wike is either a very big fo0l or a very wise man.
From the beginning every knowledgeable person knew Wike was attempting to do the impossible, to form an alliance between the Okirikas/Kalabaris and the Ikwerres.
Some thing that has neva happened before, no matter how much 1st lady Dame Patience claims to love Wike as an Okirika women she will neva support Wike for Governor against her own people.
However i see Wike as very smart coz he has managed to grab the entire party structure and put it under his armpit and duh people have complained to high heavens, GEJ has been reluctant to engage Wike in a fight to collect state party structure so as not to replicate the Anambra State scenario where PDP shall be in court till the last day of election.
Which eva way the pendulum swings in PDP Rivers State Wike must be appeased if PDP intends to win the elections else Ogbakor Ikwerre will reunite their two sons (Amaechi and Wike) and succeed in producing the Governor for anoda 8 years will the Ijaws scream blue murder.

The money Gov. Amaechi will spend trying to rebuild the bridge that connects him to Wike will used in providing for the needs of the people. Or even thrown into the Monorail project. So Wike, nothing for you. Sit, relax, clap and paste the posters of the guy they are replacing you with.

Any word on the fate of Bibi? Or is he "Anyone I See" kind of guy?

This tout once alleged that Gov. Ameachi will be arrested as he steps down from office, now see how the cookie crumbles?

He has been dealt the sucker punch finally and Gov. Ameachi now has the last laugh.

Wike is less concern about education system in Nigeria , Wike is only interested in Rivers politics. Now that his governoship ambition is going down the drain, may be he will now have a rethink towards rivers politics or the education system he was employed for.

Wike accept our sympathy

The suspicion btw the Ikwerres and Okrikans made Wikes endorsement by the First Lady so suspect, It was technically impossible.

Wike should reconcile with Amaechi so Ikwerres could have one common voice and navigate 2015 for the sake of our collective destiny becos the Ijaws are gearing up to claim every single political position.

there was no suspiction btw d Ikwerres and d Okrikans and @ no time did Sisi Patience endorse Wike...

Ijaws, IYC, INC and other stakeholders in Ijawland irrespective of political divide(including Dame Patience) has been saying 2015 is Ijaw Governorship. Amaechi prefers Ogoni.

But....let Rivers decide!

Hon Dagogo, Sen George Sekibo or Tonye Princewill will get my support..
