Minister of state and supervising minister
of education, Nyesom Wike has submitted his letter of resignation to
President Goodluck Jonathan.
Sources reveal to The Paradigm that the minister’s resignation is
to enable him pursue his ambition of becoming the next governor of
Rivers State after the expiration of the tenure of the incumbent,
Hon. Rotimi Amaechi.
The minister was said to have briefed the President of his intention
to contest for the Rivers governorship election in 2015, to which he
got the approval of the President to challenge the growing profile of
the Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi.
The resignation which is expected to take effect from April 1, 2014
has gotten the approval of the president.
But another source within the Villa, confirmed that Wike’s
resignation will be announced next week Wednesday during the
Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.
Wike has been in running battle with Governor Amaechi, notorious
for using the former Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Joseph
Mbu, who is a very close ally of the President’s wife, Mrs
Patience Jonathan, to attack the interest of the governor.
He was behind the group of five members of the House of Assembly
who tried to impeach the Rivers State House of Assembly
Speaker, with another ally, Evans Bipi claiming to be the new
speaker.
