Ikwerres Have Learnt A Hard Lesson by Nobody: 10:26pm On Jun 16, 2022
It is safe to say that Ikwerres have reached their climax politically and after coming so close yet failed miserably. I wouldn't say it is a case of use and dump per se but something that was bound to happen.

Firstly, not a few people thought that Amaechi would be supported by Buhari to become president considering how loyal he has been to them. Even he Amaechi thought he was the anointed one until the last minute.

Secondly, Wike was over confident that he would emerge the PDP presidential candidate. They even hoped that both parties would field Ikwerre candidates. However, Wike also lost the presidential primaries to Atiku after spending billions of naira in pursuit of it.

Many felt that he would probably be compensated with the VP slot, but alas he was denied that too.

The basis that caused the failure of these two Ikwerre men when they were already very close to the trophy is what I will reveal today; the acrimonious relationship existing between them and Igbos!

Wike's unpopularity started after he sanctioned attack on Obigbo people in Rivers State. The anger was so much among the rest of Igbos that Wike instantly drew the battle line. Before that unfortunate incident, Igbos used to be his greatest supporters. Hausas and Fulanis never liked him and neither did Yorubas. However, he instantly became an orphan because Igbos turned from being his greatest supporters to his worst critics. Wike was left with just Rivers cash to back him up.

The betrayal of Tambuwal on the day of primaries may have been a sucker punch. But losing out on the VP ticket was the final straw.

Aside his rambunctious nature, Atiku would have considered Wike if had the support of Igbos. Atiku and his advisers realized that Wike had no other group behind him except his Ikwerre people of just 2/3 LGAs. However, Okowa has a cosy relationship with Igbos and the Anioma people also align with Igbos more often than not. There with Okowa, Atiku knew he could still hope to get some Igbo votes.

The case of ikwerres is akin to a butterfly that thought itself a bird. Soon Wike will hand over to an Ijaw or Opobo man. Amaechi will step down as minister. The fame they enjoyed is already over.

The Igbos may not be having it any better but as far as Igbos still own an entire region to themselves and also have a huge population, they will always be a force to reckon with in Nigeria.

This is a self inflicted injury and they have no one to blame except themselves. I hope the Ikwerres have learned their lesson, albeit the hard way.

if this is true, how come did Wike enjoy overwhelming votes from SE in the presidential primaries?

I don't know the ethinic group that have PDP governorship ticket in Rivers.. But if such man didn't distance himself from Wike despite being his boss, another party is likely to win Rivers...

Wike is fighting almost all ethnic groups in Rivers and in SS and at the same time shouting "We are Niger Delta" all in a bid to keep pushing his dead agenda ...

I think he has learnt his lesson in a bitter way..


As for Amechi... I don't think people have problem with him ... He's just like an average Nig politician...


Wike is the problem, and he's a yoruba PDP candidate cheesy

Amechi could have gone further if he was more serious about his Igboness, he could have been more serious with Ohaneze, attend Igbo meetings, work with Kalu and the rest of Igbo APC members, they could not have abandoned him, and since he is likely the president's heart, he could have at least put up a better fight, the fact is that South South Igbos don't know what they sre missing by distancing from South East Igbos, Ikwerre does not even qualify as a minority but the Igbo is a majority no matter how you look at it.

As for Wike, forget the drunkard Rivers Man, he's a Benin man, Ikwerre would eventually understand the Igbo effect.

If the ikwerres like let them learn their lesson,the fact will remain that they are a tiny minority local govt,even the ijaws and akwa iboms have more stake in South south than them and by the time other tribes in rivers take over the leadership of river state their eyes will open more...

His biggest worry should be the enemies he has made for himself who will come after him immediately he loses immunity.
Ethnic groups in Rivers state like Ogoni whom he insulted and mrginalised
Traditional rulers
Amaechi and his men
Efcc
Unknown Gunmen
Obigbo people that he killed and marginalized at will
Hausa Fulani that he fought and insulted
Fellow governors and politicians he fought

He will learn the hard way

Ijaws are for Ijaw Republic.
Free yourself first from Ibo aggression. Ibo wars are coming to the Niger Delta after Yoruba exit from Nigeria. Prepare for Ibo territorial wars. Ibo envy of Yoruba landmass and sea access will lead them to march Southward and Westward. You have been forewarned.

Mumu don't even know what landlocked is.
This shows that you know nothing.
Landlocked means u cannot access the ocean without passing other peoples territory thereby you guys begging Ijaw Republic forever to use our coasts for your goods and you will pay very high rents for it and that's if we ever allow it.
