‘Respect rules of your party’ – Wike warns Rivers politicians

As the crisis in Rivers State continues to fester, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, has cautioned politicians against pulling down the ladder they use to climb to the top.

Wike spoke at his residence in Port Harcourt while receiving the traditional ruler of Ogbaland.

According to Wike: “Don’t pull the ladder that you use in climbing. When you are coming down, the ladder may not be there. And leave the ladder too so that other people can also climb the ladder.”

The immediate past governor of the state also debunked claims that the political face-off was an ethnic war, stressing that there was no such consideration.

“We didn’t vote based on ethnicity, but for the unity of Rivers. We shall never be part of violence but we will always support peace.

“There are rules within the political group from which you emerge. You cannot say that because an Oba has emerged and then an Oba will not follow the rules of the traditional institution. No, an Oba will always obey the rules. So also in politics. There are things you must not do and there are things you must do,” he stated.
