2023: Advise our people to play decent Politics – Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has harped on the need for politicians not to play violent Politics but resort to playing decent politics.

Governor Wike spoke when he inaugurated the Okrika Founder’s Park on Saturday in Koniju Ama in Okrika Local Government Area.

Governor Wike said it is unfortunate that the likes of Senator Lee Maeba, who is still stuck in politics of violence could be accusing him of violence.

He wondered the basis why Senator Lee Maeba would alleged that political thugs were sent by him to invade his house, an incidence police report has invalidated.

“Two days again, I was watching on TV, it’s unfortunate, I saw Lee Maeba, I saw Austin Opara,I saw Abiye Sekibo saying that my humble self sent people to Lee Maeba’s house to attack him, to kill him, I couldn’t believe it.

“But you saw the Commissioner of Police’s report. He said, listen, your house is surrounded by houses, you have two gates to your house, not one gate was damage, not one.

“The cars you said that were damaged are rickety cars no brand-new cars were touched. Have you ever seen such?

Governor Wike said he thought that by now, people should have a limit to how far they can play politics.

He stated that by the allegations made by Senator Lee Maeba, the man was pushing issues too far, but instead of playing politics of violence, he would rather resort to using legal means.

“But you see, I laugh. I said God, well, you know the truth. But people are pushing politics too far. I am sleeping, you are waking me up. When I wake, whatever you see you take.

“Please, advise our people not to play the kind of politics they are playing. Let’s play decent politics. Anybody who knows me know too well, my own is, if I want to fight you, I don’t need to send anybody, I will go to court.”
