Former NHRC chairman and lawyer Chidi Odinkalu has declared that Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), needs to choose between continuing in his role as FCT Minister and running for governor of Rivers State a third time.
This claim was made by Odinkalu during a Mic On Podcast conversation with Seun Okinbaloye in the midst of the political unrest in Rivers State that has divided Governor Wike from Governor Sim Fubara. Additionally, he asked Wike to focus on the current issues that Abuja is facing.
In Odinkalu’s words: “Wike has to decide if he wants to remain FCT Minister or Governor of Rivers for 3rd time, he can not be both. At a time when Abuja is in such a state, the Minister of Federal Capital Territory wants to be running Rivers for a third time which he is constitutionally unable to do.
So he has got to decide that or the president should decide it for him, the country can not wait for him to make that decision. So if the president insists on keeping him in Abuja in the current circumstance of the FCT, there is only one reason, the president wants to do politics with Wike”. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
