The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State has apologized to Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, over the recent allegation by the State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, that the immediate past administration of Chibuike Amaechi spent N82 million to organise a birthday dinner in his honour in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
In a statement issued on Monday in Port Harcourt, the state capital, the chairman of the state chapter of the party, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya described Wike’s allegation as unfortunate.
He said, “On behalf of the good people of Rivers State, we hereby tender an unreserved apology to Prof. Soyinka and to assure him that Wike’s vile attempt to link him to an imaginary corruption will fail.
This accusation is nothing but the ranting of a drowning man looking for whom to pull into the stinking pool but Wike has over-reached himself this time because Prof. Soyinka is globally renowned as a man of unimpeachable integrity who has never been associated with corruption in his over 80 years on earth.
“The fact remains that Chief Wike is currently in a pit full of faeces, looking for whom he will splatter the faeces and sadly he remembered our revered Prof and as rightly observed by Prof Soyinka in his reaction, Wike is ready to, “splatter sewage in all possible and improbable directions,” Rivers APC said.
It stated that Wike in his desperation to discredit Amaechi must have forgotten that his panel of Inquiry that investigated the former governor’s tenure exonerated him of any financial misdeeds.
The party affirmed further that, “If Wike is sure of his records, why doesn’t he go to court to retrieve the said sum?”
“To us as a political party, It is very sad and unfortunate that Wike and his confused Team in their wild accusation failed to appreciate the pivotal role Prof Soyinka played in securing Port Harcourt as the UNESCO World Book Capital City 2014. The feat, which put not only Rivers State but indeed Nigeria on the global map necessitated thedinner in honour of the Nobel Laureate.
All said and done we are happy to note that this bare-faced lies deliberately hatched to smear the character and image of the literary scholar as well as the Acting Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Mrs. Ibim Semenitari have failed woefully as Nigerians are gradually coming to terms of what Wike stands for,” the statement noted.

I’m still single and searching – 70-year-old virgin Cries
An elderly woman has lamented being single and still searching because she rejected many men in the name of sacrificing her life to give her siblings a good education before getting married.
“The reason I am still single is that I haven’t found the right man for me. But when I was still a young girl, several men were chasing after me. I dated several, but I refused to get married before my siblings graduated because I was the one who was taking care of them. Men would approach me for marriage and I would tell them no because I wanted to educate my siblings first, then marry later,” she said.
“If I get a husband, I would get married. I’m ready to be a wife and move in together with my husband,” Alphonsine said.
Time To Sanction Wike Has Come, He Has Touched The Tiger’s Tail- Atiku’s Camp
For daring to call for the expulsion of the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, the camp and political associates of the former vice president has moved against Nyesom Wike, asking the NWC to discipline him.
They described Wike as a serial betrayal who formed the group of five governors that committed series of anti party activities against the PDP during the February 25 presidential election.
Director of Research and Documentation of the PDP Presidential Campaign, Dr. Pedro Obasike said,
“Wike coming out to ask for the expulsion of the number one leader of the party and the presidential flag bearer of the party and the recipient of the mandate of the Nigerian people as declared in INEC’s submission that we won 21 states and asking Atiku to be expelled from the party, Wike has crossed the red line and now, he should be ready. He has all the money to fight us back because we are coming at him like a thousand bricks.
“He has unleashed the dogs of war and we will not sit back and watch him ride rough over the party and majority of Nigerians like he did for 8 years over the humility of the Rivers people. That can no longer suffice”.
He also challenged Wike to publish his bank account when he assumed office as a governor and after his eight years tenure as the governor of Rivers state.
According to Obaseke, “Wike is a member of the APC, a sitting Minister of an APC government. Wike openly campaigned against the PDP. You see, by their fruits, we shall know them. By all intents and purposes, Wike is not a member of the PDP’ .
“If you remember clearly, just a few months to the election, Barrister Nyesom Wike, then the governor of Rivers State ran to the court to get an injunction to preclude and stop the PDP from expelling him from the party. If he was so untouchable and bigger than the entire party machinery, why did he do that? Whether we like it or not, Wike is Satan lieutenant.
