Secondus Accuses Wike of Orchestrating Political Crisis in Rivers State

Former PDP Chairman Secondus has asked FCT minister Wike to account for NNPC funds during his tenure as Rivers governor.

Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus, has accused  FCT minister Nyesom Wike of being the mastermind of the current charged political atmosphere in Rivers State.

Secondus also challenged Wike to account for the proceeds he allegedly collected from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) for the Ogoni oil wells during his tenure as governor of Rivers State. 

Secondus’ spokesperson, Ike Abonyi, said in a statement that the former PDP national chairman made the allegations against the backdrop of Wike’s antics and incessant feud with Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

Secondus accused the FCT minister of demarketing the state because Governor Fubara had blocked all loopholes that could allow him access to the revenues in the coffers of the state.

Secondus also claimed that Wike had instructed his aides and political associates to continuously malign and sabotage the peace, progress, and prosperity of the state by ceaselessly attacking Governor Fubara and other leaders of the state in the media. 

He further stated that Wike’s media attacks against the political leaders of Rivers were “unwarranted and diversionary.”

“He had on an occasion mentioned that he is capable of causing a crisis and he is not far from the truth, as he is causing an unfathomable crisis in Rivers State. Mrs. Patience Jonathan and I worked for his emergence as governor. Have we ever breathed down his neck? Instead, what we get is disrespect and insults.  

Secondus called on President Bola Tinubu to warn Wike to stop overheating the political atmosphere in Rivers State and allow the governor the freedom and liberty to work in the interest of the electorate in the state who voted him into office.
