“Wike is notorious for lying, speaks from both sides of his mouth” – Fmr Rivers governor, Omehia

Former Governor of Rivers State, Sir Celestine Omehia, has described the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, as a chronic liar.

Omehia made the comment in a statement sent to journalists on Friday in response to Wike’s remarks during a live television interview with select journalists in Abuja.

Wike had at the media parley described Uche Secondus, Senator George Sekibo and other PDP leaders in Rivers State as “expired politicians and buccaneers” due to their support for Fubara.

Omehia described Wike’s uncontrolled outbursts as a product of a confused mind, saying Wike’s anger was that his ambition of a 3rd tenure had crashed and the people of Rivers state had realized that his quest for power was personal and not for the interest of Rivers State or the South-South at large as claimed.

His words: “The FCT Minister thought that he would continue to control and abuse the resources and governance of the state but God, through the people, resisted the impeachment plot by his members of the Rivers State House of Assembly.

“Wike is notorious for lying against anyone, anytime and disrespects elders at will, so there is no surprise about his outburst and criticism against innocent personalities in Rivers State.

“Wike speaks from both sides of his mouth; he says something today and denies it tomorrow like a clown. I am not a buccaneer, and my capacity to contribute to the growth and development of my state and country is not impaired.

“I wonder why he is pained by our support for the Governor and the Federal Government under President Tinubu. Does he want us to perpetually be at political war with everybody, even long after elections are over and governance taken over? Is it not madness?”
