The governor of Rivers, Nyesom Wike, in a video published online by Gossip Mill, has said he will drive out members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
Highlights of what he said holding up a machete:
- The machete is meant for a purpose which is to clear all the unwanted members living in Rivers state and not for decoration.
- He actually said, “since PDP has given me a machete, I will not hesitate or look back in cutting the remaining APC’S in Rivers State.”
There’s going to be a counter-speech from the APC in the state, which will escalate the tension in Rivers.
- The political back and forth war of words between former governor, Rotimi Amaechi and Wike is already a problem, so this might motivate a response from loyal members.
The governor was holding up a machete, portraying him as a regular ‘thug’.
