A feud has been reported to have ensued between the Minister, Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, and the Governor of Rivers State, HE. Wike after the commissioning of the Niger Delta Development Commission’s headquarters in Port Harcourt.
Read Full excerpt of what Wike was reported saying to Senator Godswill Akpabio:
“I read what former Governor of Akwa Ibom, (Senator Godswill)Akpabio had said. It is unfortunate of him.
I told him to talk less, I’ve told him to talk less. Now he is taking on the South South Governors, and we tell him that when he was Governor, he was acting as a king.
There was money as at that time, the exchange rate was 150 naira to a dollar, today it is 500 naira to a dollar. Akpabio had money(during his time as Governor), and he has the temerity to say, ‘ask South South Governors what they are doing with 13%’.
Akpabio should not talk to Rivers state at all. He is not qualified to talk to River state, if he wants to talk, he should concentrate himself on Akwa Ibom State, else we will teach him a lesson here.
Akpabio should know, enough is enough. I am not a sychophant, I’m not an inconsistent person. I don’t care, he does not see me in their (Aso Rock) Villa, so if he wants to talk, let him concentrate on his state, not to venture again into Rivers state or he will regret meeting River State.”
DARE SPONSOR BLACKMAILERS AND MILITANTS AGAIN, WE WILL TEACH YOU A LESSON – GOV WIKE TO AKPABIO
Don’t begin to go and pay money to people to carry propaganda against Governors, you will suffer for it at the end of the day.
People should say what they practice. I will show a video where Akpabio said the President (BUHARI)should come and learn from me what I am doing here. You come here you begin to talk carelessly, you want to start sponsoring so called MILITANTS, that we should render account of 55 trillion naira. Where did we get such an amount from? If we got 55trillion, then he got 200 trillion naira.
You go and schedule commissioning of a project(NDDC Headquarters), you cannot even ask the governors if the date is suitable for them, then you go and start criticizing, “oh they boycotted…” boycotted what? You promised me that you are going to partner me on the dualization of that Eastern Bypass, you ran away. Now we are doing the road and he is enjoying it now… AKPABIO BE CAREFUL.
