Osibanjo's Visit: Satan always wants to turn light into darkness -Wike


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has berated the leaders of the APC in the state   for misinforming Acting President Yemi Osinbajo that they were holding an APC meeting in Port Harcourt, only for them to turn around  to pretend to hold a Niger Delta Stakeholders meeting.



The governor lauded Vice President  Yemi Osinbajo for setting the record  straight  when he proclaimed the APC slogan and explained  that he was at the Tuesday event to meet his Rivers APC family.

Addressing former   Ndoni APC  Members led by Chief Ofili Enebeli after their  defection  to PDP  in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, the governor declared that the successful official engagements  of the Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo  to Rivers  State  sent shivers down the spine of political mischief makers spreading  false stories  about the state, hence they resorted to their usual  desperate anti-Rivers politics.

He said: "Satan will never sleep. Satan will always be at work. Satan always wants to turn light into darkness.

"When we held the stakeholders  meeting, even the Minister of Transportation was there. But as a you know, a  chameleon will always  be a chameleon. When you see agents  of Lucifer you will know.

"Just because  the Acting President slept in Rivers State and went round our projects, then confirmed that this man is Mr Projects, they suddenly became troubled ".

He added: " Agents of Lucifer  in trying  to  cause confusion, persuaded the Acting President that there  will be need for him to  talk to APC Members.  I have no problems with that. Mr Acting President  is a member  of the APC.  But governance is governance.  When they got there, they renamed the APC  meeting  as stakeholders  meeting. Shame , shame.

"It was not Rivers Stakeholders meeting and it couldn’t  have been.  "

The governor  said that it was shocking that the Minister of Transportation  and his associates questioned  the award of "Apostle of Peace " conferred on him by the Rivers CAN when they simply divided the Christian Association of Nigeria  (CAN) when they had the opportunity.  He explained  that he remains  a  man of peace who will never divide families.

He noted that he is focused on the  delivery  of  projects, as he has totally shocked  the leaders of Rivers APC  into oblivion.

The governor  said  that he will continue  to  play mature politics, unlike the era of Rotimi Amaechi when he repeatedly  desecrated  the  office of the President, refusing  to  accord Goodluck Jonathan  the respect due his office.

He pointed out that he accorded the Acting President  of Nigeria  all the respect  due to his office because the state believes governance  transcends  partisan  politics.

Earlier, Rivers State PDP Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah noted that the APC leader of Ndoni, Chief Ofili Enebeli  defected to the PDP  because of the outstanding performance of Governor Wike.

In his remarks, Chief Enebeli  praised Governor Wike  for his exemplary  leadership.

Over 1000 APC  members from Ndoni of the Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni LGA  defected to the PDP  alongside their  leaders.
