The convener of the Pan Niger Delta Forum, Edwin Clark, has blamed Federal Capital Territory Minister, Nyesom Wike, for the crisis in Rivers State, saying that the former governor is an ingrate who betrayed former President Jonathan after imposing him as governor in 2015.

The elder statesman aired his view during an interview on Arise TV.

The Ijaw leader said that the immediate past Rivers governor had led five lawmakers in 2013 to impeach the then speaker.

He wondered why the same Wike should be arguing that the five lawmakers in the state during the present administration are not constitutional.

He added that Jonathan and his wife, Patience Jonathan helped Wike to become a governor of Rivers, but their relationship later turned sour.

He said, “Wike is a man without integrity. A man with double standards. He doesn’t understand himself. He’s dancing naked in the market. He doesn’t know. He has one leg in the APC and the other leg in the PDP. Who’s he deceiving?


“In 2015, who put Wike there? Who sponsored him to become governor of Rivers state? He should ask himself whether he was sponsored by people or he just came like that. Who was he? He was just a lawyer in Port Harcourt and he was collecting rent from motor parks before Peter Odili made him the chairman of a local government council. That’s number one.

“Today, we know who made him governor. President Jonathan and his wife, Patience Jonathan, imposed Wike on the people of Rivers state against the wish of the people. But because Mrs Jonathan is a Rivers woman and Ijaw lady, she was able to get a vote of confidence for this ungrateful Wike.

“Today, what’s the relationship between him and the former First Lady and Jonathan?”
