Zamfara Gold: I Never Said FG Should Hands Off Rivers Oil - Wike by bolaayenimo: 8:41pm On Oct 11
Temidayo Akinsuyi, Lagos

Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike has denied making any statement that Rivers state can also manage its oil like the case of the gold in Zamfara.

A statement by Paulinus Nsirim, the Commissioner for Information reads " The attention of the Rivers State Government has been drawn to a completely false and misleading story circulating in the Social Media, that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State made some remarks in connection with a report that the Central Bank of Nigeria will  purchase N 5billion worth of Gold from the Zamfara State Government".

"The purveyors of this barefaced fallacy suggested in their warped story, that  Governor Wike was unhappy with the decision of the CBN to buy Gold from Zamfara State" .

"They claimed that Governor Wike who lamented that the same privileged attention has not been given to the oil from Rivers State, demanded that Gold should be made a national cake, adding that he too would proceed to own a gold well in Zamfara State".

Let us state here categorically that Governor Wike never made such a statement. Infact, we note with a sense of relief, that no major, mainstream News media or Press Organization, either print, electronic or online, attached to Government House, Port Harcourt, carried this concocted story.

So it is a wonder where the mushroom, less than credible social media outlets got the comments, which they claimed Governor Wike made "while addressing the Press."

It has indeed become the ugly penchant in recent times, of some cynical and dubious detractors, to drop or insert Governor Wike's name in their calculated crusade to ignite unprovoked conflict with the hidden ploy to disrupt the recently emerging warm cordiality which has defined the relationship between him and some leaders across geopolitical divides in the country.

These naysayers have also commenced a devious gambit to insidiously tarnish the overwhelming goodwill which the burgeoning image and reputation of  Governor Wike has been enjoying across the country and this latest story is simply the latest installment of their failed efforts.

Those familiar with Governor Wike will know that he does not need to resort to such churlish and petty grandstanding portrayed in the silly story, to speak up on any matter whatsoever.

"The write up is thus just another figment of the convoluted imagination of its authors. They goofed big time on this one".

"Nigerians are therefore advised to completely disregard the story,  especially now that the Federal Government, the CBN and the Zamfara State Government have all come out to speak clearly on the matter and set the records straight".

Even if you say it, you are right. What is good for the goose, should also be good for the gander.

In other words, what's good for Okere, is also good for Okereke.

Okay cheesy

But the purported press release is intelligent na

The Gold should obviously be made a National cake..... there is nothing to argue there...it is obviously a natural resource...which should be controlled by the FG....

If we start exploring the bitumen of ondo state...won't the federal govt take control...?!

Ahbi na we southerners Mumu pass
