When Wike Denied Being Igbo, He Made It Impossible For Anyone To Pick Him As VP by gidgiddy: 6:51am On Jun 23
Some say the Ikwerre people are a unique ethnic group, not sure about that one as they speak Igbo as their ancestral language and have Igbo names, but thats discussion for another day. While some Ikwerres like Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi dont deny being Igbo, others like Nyesome Wike flatly deny it. Unfortunately for people like Wike, politics is a game of numbers

Wike was a man once admired by many Igbos, they saw him as one of their own, they believed he was a tough talking guy who stood by the people. In a twinkle of an eye, Wike threw all that goodwill away for nothing. In 2020, violence trailed the ENDSARS movement after Soldiers opened fire on protesters at Lekki tolgate. Rivers state was just one of many states where Police stations were burnt, security forces killed and properties destroyed. While other Governors were trying to calm things down and bring peace, Wike, like most IPOB haters, decided to blame IPOB, with no evidence and no investigation.

Wike even accused Stanley Mgbere, a young activist from Onne, of being the IPOB leader in Rivers State and put 50 million Naira on his head. The accusation later turned out to be false. Wlke then went further to deny being Igbo, and invite the military into the Igbo town of Obigbo(renamed Oyigbo in 1976) where they massacred and abducted innocent residents

Having denied being Igbo and the Obigbo affair, made Wike toxic to most Igbos in the South East and South/South. This meant that any Presidential aspirant who was looking to get the Igbo vote, could not afford to pick Wike

So naturally, Atiku went for Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, a man who had never denied being Igbo, never went after IPOB unduly, and never invited the military to kill his people.

Expect to see Ifeanyi Okowa campaigning throughout the Igbo heartland soliciting their votes and reminding them he is one of them, something Wike can never do

Without Atiku, Wike would have been unstoppable. He gave Atiku a good run for his money.

Atiku needs Wike support right now, Wike do not need Atiku.

Tinubu will win in Rivers State next year.

Wike committed no crime clearing people about where he is from.

I guess it's not only Wike so many people of Rivers States when you asked them they will tell they are not Igbo whereas if you observed them close you will definitely realize that they are Igbo's ...Rivers State are just neutral people they are neither there nor here they are not definate at all...I may moreover said that it's a significant situation on him apparently he denied his tribe.. undecided

is there anything like South south? When we mentioned South south, we re talking about those bearing our nomenclature not others from riverine areas . take correction sir..

You can't leave our consanguinity in the hands of unknown tribe like you .
If Ifeanyi from South south said he's Igbo ..

Pls keep quiet whenever we mentioned south South..

But there were Fulani muslins in Rivers that voted Atiku in 2019? And there were Ikwerre Muslims in Kano who voted for Wike during the PDP primary election.

Sense is far from most of you.


You will all be humbled soon.

All of them from the South South that joined some evil minded foreigners to antagonize the igbos over the last 8 years will slowly but surely come to the realization that without the former Eastern Nigeria as a strong political blok sticking together, they can only make it at the federal level by chance like Jonathan. Some of these guys think that they can burnish the laughable pro Nigeria credentials before the North and South West by always snarling at the South East. Very ungrateful bunch! These are a group of people who have gotten nothing but unalloyed support from the East.

The South East took the fight for resources control which has now benefitted the socalled South South region more than the South East, as her fight and stood hand in hand with them till it was achieved! But guess what happened immediately after "derivation" was achieved? Prominent politicians from the South South started to join the Afonja press to argue that The East is not part of the Niger Delta and as such, shouldn't be part of the Niger Delta commission even with her enermous Oil and gas deposits! Obasanjo in his Evil ways, nearly acceded to that.

The East took Jonathan as their own even when he occasionally treated the east with little or no respect, as was the case with the firing of Bath Nnaji from the Power Ministry, the quick firing of Okwesilieze Nwodo from The PDP chairmanship position and the quick removal of the Igbo lady, who once headed the immigration commission for daring to recruit igbos into the commission. Jonathan basically built no roads or power plants or industries in the east and was playing political football with the much vaunted second Niger bridge, Yet The East provided him with all the support he needed while in power.

What am I even talking about!? The very concept of The South South as a region was basically a product of one Alex Ekwueme during the Abacha constitutional conference. Lots of them in the so called South South that flagrantly follow Buhari and Afonja media narrativees, to parrot the warped independence of the South South from the former Eastern Nigeria are not aware of this. If the igbos wanted nothing like South South to be mentioned in Nigeria, they could have easily done that by seriously objecting to that during that conference in the 90s and that would have been it, since it was only the South East that supported the South South region goals in that Conference. The socalled South South traditional allies in the north and south west ran away..., as usual.

You're so shallow

You claim APC can't win Rivers because is a PDP state, but you want me to believe Labour party will win APC states in 2023, are you this daft? So labour party will win APC states but APC can't win in PDP states

The joke is on you though.
