A group of concerned Indigenes of Rivers State in the Diaspora has urged the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike to ensure that divisive elements does not sabotage the harmony between him and Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

Speaking via a statement by Johnson Eke Wise, Spain, Margaret Ijeoma Otti, Chicago, USA, Gregory Otabil, Texas, USA, Sylvester Dokubo, Manchester, UK, Patient Jibnoh, Spain, and Kaine Briggs, Maryland, USA, the group praised Wike for the unprecedented development he carried out in Rivers while he was governor of the state.

Speaking further, they cautioned the former governor that his role as the FCT Minister might lead to him gathering more adversaries than allies.

The group claimed that certain emissaries have informed them that some individuals with ill intent are concocting stories with the aim of driving a wedge between Wike and Fubara.

They urged him not to allow others deceive him into using the grace he has received from God to disgrace others.

The Rivers indigenes advised the Minister to consider open dialogue and consult respected elders like Sir Peter Odili if any conflict should arise.

The statement reads in part, “We, the Concerned Indigenes of Rivers State in the Diaspora, write to you today with great respect and a profound sense of responsibility because the matter we wish to discuss concerns all Rivers State indigenes across the world.

“Your tenure as governor brought unprecedented development to our dear state, and for this, we appreciate and celebrate you. Your aspirations, including your run for the presidency through the PDP, garnered significant support from the Rivers State diaspora, as we believed in your leadership.

“Though the presidency was not in the cards at the time, we remain confident that your political future is bright. In light of this, we wish to offer some advice and caution for your current role as the FCT Minister. Your intentions are noble, but the complex nature of the terrain requires careful consideration and the right approach.

“Our intention is not to discourage you from carrying out your duties but to emphasize that this role might lead to gathering more adversaries than allies. We hope you will not be overwhelmed by the challenges you may face. We pray for God’s guidance in your endeavours, acknowledging that you have always been blessed with His grace.

“Nonetheless, we implore you not to employ the grace you have received from God in a way that might disgrace others. The word “grace” carries immense significance, and it is essential to exercise it judiciously and with humility.

“Back at home, we are aware of your pivotal role in the election of Sir Siminalayi Fubara as the governor, and we commend your commitment to continuity and progress, akin to Asiwaju Bola Amed Tinubu’s approach in Lagos. You must maintain a positive relationship with the current Governor, your anointed successor, who is loyal and reliable.

“We have sent emissaries to gather information, and we are aware that certain individuals with ill intentions may be concocting stories to create discord. We earnestly request that you do not allow such divisive elements to undermine the harmony between you and the Governor.

“In the event of any differences or conflicts of interest, please consider open dialogue and involve respected elders like Sir Peter Odili and His Highness Sergent Awuse, who can mediate and help find common ground. Remember that you hold a significant stake in the state’s political landscape due to your future political aspirations.”
