Stay Away From Wike’s Plot To Remove Rivers Governor – Edwin Clark Warns PDP, APC Chairmen



Remain In Abuja, Stop Interfering In Rivers Politics - Clark To Wike

Elder statesman and national leader of the Pan-Niger Delta Forum, Chief Edwin Clark, has called on the acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Umar Damagum, and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje, to dissociate themselves from the alleged attempt by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, to bring down the government of Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara.

Clark made the demands in a letter dated May 20, 2024, addressed to both party chairmen, News About Nigeria reports.

Clark appealed to them to distance themselves from Wike’s alleged plan, which he said was threatening peace and stability in the country.

He stated that the support given to Wike by both men had emboldened him to intimidate and anger the Rivers State Governor and government, which was seen as an attempt to overthrow the duly elected governor, a criminal act.

Clark faulted the Chairman of the APC for relating to the Caretaker Committee in the state, which he alleged was appointed by Wike instead of the legitimate Chairman, Emeka Beke, who was suspended.

He also questioned the PDP Chairman’s knowledge of Wike’s anti-party activities, including seeking court injunctions against senior party chieftains to prevent them from attending the National Executive Council meeting of April 18, 2024.

The Ijaw leader asked the party chairmen to caution Wike and withdraw from what he described as the “madness of politics” in Rivers State, alleging that both men were equally involved in the crisis.

He warned that the political crisis in Rivers State, caused by Wike’s control of both parties, was dangerous and could have far-reaching consequences for the state and the country.
