Anyone following political events in and around Nigeria must attest to the fact that the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has always dished out unprovoked tackles on the Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma. Most of the unprovoked attacks are not based on issues of governance but on political party differences. Governor Uzodimma known to be reserved and with measured with his words, has continually refused to join many other politicians in the country  to trade banters in the media.  Known to make appearences or statements only after perfecting plans and arrangements for any endeavour, Gov. Uzodimma has continued to shame his detractors with his approach to issues.  Sincerely, it is counterintuitive to expect an emperor to be happy with the strongman and tactician who took away 43 oil wells from him. This is exactly the foundation of Nyesom Wike's hatred towards Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State as far as common sense goes. 17 of the wells currently under litigation wit

The defeat of the Peoples Democratic Party according to political pundits puts paid to the lingering popularity contest in Imo State and consolidates the position of the APC as the Party of choice of Imo people. The victory of the APC is also viewed as a vote of confidence on the Shared Prosperity  mandate, leadership and  government of Sen. Hope Uzodimma, the Governor of Imo State. Among those said to be ruing the defeat of the PDP are members of the top echelon of the Party led by Chief Nyesom Wike, the Governor of Rivers State, as well as, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State and former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha. Wike was said to have thrown caution and decency to th
