Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike has knocked those attributing ethnic dimensions to the political crisis rocking Rivers State.
He also cautioned against those promoting disunity in the state and urged them to refrain from such actions to preserve peace.
Wike, while speaking at the launch of “Law and Society: A Compendium of Speeches and Addresses,” authored by former Chief Judge of the state, Justice Iche Ndu, stated that his character was the reason he was appointed as Minister, despite being a memeber of the opposition party, PDP.
The Minister also stated that if he had followed the advice from certain persons, Siminalayi Fubara wouldn’t have been elected as the Governor of Rivers State.
“I am a man of character. I would not have been the minister of FCT, a non-member of the APC to become minister of FCT, then you should know that I am a man of character.
“If I had followed you people who are Bishops today, Fubara would not have been Governor. The way you people are pushing to go, if I had followed that part and supported the person you wanted me to support it would not have been possible.
“So, I urge all of you, if you want to help, help. If you cannot help, do not cause war,” the FCT Minister said.
