You Use Ogoni Day To Make Money, God Will Never Forgive You - Wike Tells Ogoni Peole
Governor Nyesom Wike

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has accused the Ogoni people of using the Ogoni Day celebration to make money without having the interest of the people at heart.

Governor Wike made the accusation while speaking at the 30th celebration of Ogoni Day with the theme, “Leaving no one behind” that held at the Birabi Memorial Grammar School, Bori town, in Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State, on Tuesday.

He said, ” You use Ogoni Day to make money. God will never forgive you. I will never be a party to make blood money. All of you, you are here today for Ogoni Day. Are you standing firm for Ogoni people?. Are you standing firm for the spirit of those who died for you?. Go and check your conscience. Ogoni people, check your conscience”.

The governor asserted that he had never betrayed the interest of Rivers State, but defended it with courage including pursuing the Oil Mining Licence, OML 11 law suit at the Supreme Court. He observed that the case may not be concluded before the end of his tenure.

Wike admonished Ogoni leaders not to allow themselves to be used as agents of discord by the Federal Government, and its agencies to pull down their own and betray the Ogoni interest.

He pointed to how Ogonis are contributing to frustrate the political career of one of their bright brains, Senator Magnus Abe, and Ledum Mitee’s long fight to become a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).
