That we May Know The Sanctimonious Nyesom Wike By Olawale Olaleye

An otherwise lousy and unrefined character, he’d boastfully bully his way through whatever he desires. Wasn’t he everywhere after he fairly lost his party’s presidential nomination, claiming his fight against the PDP leadership was in the interest of the south of Nigeria?

That we may know the sanctimonious Nyesom Wike, former governor of Rivers State, Olawale Olaleye.

Former Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, once dismissed and described the APC as cancer. He’d rather deal with malaria, which he implied was the PDP than go through the horror of being a cancer patient. He used multiple platforms to espouse this drivel. Thankfully, the internet never forgets.

Sanctimonious but dishonest, he publicly queried why he’d be a minister when he was not the only one available to serve. But he walked into the red chamber of the National Assembly, yesterday, shameless and his tail between his legs. Why? Folks like him do not have a second address. He lives and breathes politics, feeding fat on the people’s collective patrimony.

An otherwise lousy and unrefined character, he’d boastfully bully his way through whatever he desires. Wasn’t he everywhere after he fairly lost his party’s presidential nomination, claiming his fight against the PDP leadership was in the interest of the south of Nigeria?

Now, is his ministerial nomination still a representation of the south of Nigeria and how? Isn’t it clear it’s always been about him and the satisfaction of his cravings? What about other members of the group of five governors he deceived into self-destruct? How will this accommodate their interest? It has always been about Wike and no one else.

Pause a moment and ask: is there anything Wike is getting now that he’d probably not get in the PDP and more? But he chose to demystify himself by settling for less, just because he lacks a critically analytical mind, and blind to what’s ahead. When you look at it critically, this is less.

Wike spent the election period relishing the public with how irresponsible and dishonest his party leadership was because they could not keep their promise. Iyorchia Ayu promised to quit as chairman if a northerner emerged the presidential candidate. He agonised endlessly.

Are you by any stretch better? Did you not call APC cancer and swore never to have anything to do with it? Did you not openly say you’d never be a minister again, because it’s a place you had been before? Are you the one walking your talk now? Jester!

By the way, you even swore shortly before your party’s presidential nomination that you didn’t want to be a running mate but the candidate, because you wouldn’t settle for less. Yet, you pulled down the house – in such a crude and greedy manner – because they bypassed you to pick a better and well-behaved human being?

Your likes are the reason some parts of the sub-region are currently in turmoil. But the God of Nigeria would rather deal with persons like you than let you pull us back into the dark age. We go jump and pass.

Unfortunately, you have aligned with people that are ‘crazier’ than you, more strategic, have a better network and reach and as well know the game better than you can ever lay claims to. It is now that you will know what it truly means when they say in local parlance: “Oga na master”.

You’d ordinarily pass for the Wildebeest, a character in the wild – fierce and fearsome. But you have offered yourself to be tamed, and this is the beginning of your domestication for a regular circus show. Nigeria and the world wait to see how you will conclude this race, and position your otherwise utopian dream of a non-existent empire.
