Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike has warned against tampering with the political structure of Rivers State.
Wike issued the warning when he received members of the Rivers State 10th National Assembly caucus on Thursday.
The delegation was led by Senator Barinada Mpigi, who represents the Rivers South East Senatorial District, and House Minority Leader Kingsley Chinda, who represents the Obio/Akpor Federal Constituency.
He also stated that he had zero interest in the governorship seat of Rivers State, adding that he was only against anyone tampering with the structure that had been in place since 2015.
He said “If anybody dares to begin to bring it down, the person will face the crisis he wants in his life. Perform or don’t perform, but don’t touch our political structure. Anybody who puts his hand in our structure, anything you see, take it.”
The Minister urged members of the caucus not to let down the people of Rivers State.
“You that we have given this opportunity to, don’t go and disapoint your state. Don’t go and disappoint your state. When you make mistakes, we’ll call you that you’re making a mistake, take it in good faith that we’re calling your attention because we think that you are derailing.
“When we call you, don’t say we are expecting kickback of 25% from you. I thought that all of us are one. We’ve built this political structure for long. Since 2015 we have emerged victorious.
“As the opposition party from 2015, I saw hell. The Federal Government fought me left right and centre, but with your support, we survived. When you work as a team, you’ll discover that it is difficult for an outsider to defeat you at home.”
