       Prince Uche Secondus, former PDP National Chairman and ally of Atiku Abubakar 

Governor Nyesom Wike has vowed to pick up fights with friends who have suddenly catapulted themselves to supporters of  his opponents.

The governor who has threatened to declare war said at the ceremony marking the  flag off  of work on  Omagwa internal roads that political turncoats who are hobnobing with opponents would be crushed.

“We removed a National Party Chairman who was not doing well. All of them were here, we all agreed.

“Now they are going to Abuja to hold meetings with the man we removed, thinking that you will use that to fight us, we will crush them”.

It was obviously a stern warning from Port Harcourt to Senator Lee Maeba, Sir Austin Opara, Chief Celestine Omehia, Chief Abiye Sekibo and others who are accused of stepping out of line urging them.

“If anybody fights our system”, Wike who was furious warned, “we will fight the person back.”

“The moment you claim to be working with us and tomorrow you shift to our enemy; we will take every might we have; we will even leave our enemy and finish you first.

“So all of you who are going back to Abuja to hold meetings with our enemies in the state, I’m going to finish you”, Wike emphasized.

Why Sim was chosen: 

According to facts that are emerging, the musketeers are reportedly teaming up with Prince Uche Secondus and the presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to fight the Rivers Governor and his team.

Each of these men had hoped Wike would favour them in the selection process, which eventually threw up Siminalayi Fubara as the candidate.

Fubara is from a Senatorial District District that has not produced a governor since 1999.

Besides, Sim as he is popularly known is from the Riverine part of the State which has not produced a governor in the last 23 years of democratic rule.

Wike revealed the other day that those who are attempting to join those opposed to Rivers interests signed unto an agreement crafted by a prominent SAN and former President of the Nigerian Bar Association.

As the state primaries drew close, the aspirants who were in regular touch with Governor Wike, information that is on the street reveals, reached an understanding that any person among them who emerged at the primary would be accepted by all.

They also endorsed the position that the leader would be expected to play a prominent role in arriving at the choice of the governorship candidate.

The Port Harcourt Telegraph reports that most of those who have joined the ‘Abuja Gang’ are either from the Upland area which has dominated power or senatorial districts that have already produced governors of the State.

We understand that some of these considerations may have led to the decision to choose a candidate from the Rivers South East.

Wike, group, may leave the PDP – Gana:

Meanwhile,  Professor Jerry Gana, one-time Minister of Information and National Orientation and a prominent leader in the North zone, has threatened that if the PDP toys with the reconciliation process that many Nigerians are backing, Wike and his supporters might troop out of the party.

Gana who issued the threat said there was the need to address serious differences which have thrown the PDP  into confusion.

Warning that the PDP may suffer greatly if the issues are swept under the carpet, Gana urged his fellow compatriots to address the complaints that are coming from party ranks.

He however expressed confidence that Governor Wike would someday be the president of Nigeria regardless of the scheme which robbed of the ticket.

Senator Jonah Jang, a former Governor of Plateau State, who is particularly satisfied with the pace of development in the State passed on a terse message to the PDP flagbearer.

In all, he warned that it would be disatrous for the main opposition party to go to the forthcoming general elections as a fragmented house.

The former governor asked asked Atiku to come out fully in support of efforts by concerned party members to correct certain anomalies.  

In the meantime, a raging fire is burning within the nation’s main opposition party.

To put out the fire, observers say Atiku who apparently prefers to act behind the scene must show leadership by stepping in, upfront, to tackle some of the issues that have been exercebated by his handling of sensitive matters.
