2023: Gov. Wike, Ex-NIMASA DG, Peterside Banter On APC Ticket | DETAILS

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has mocked former Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dakuku Peterside for failure to get the All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship ticket.

Wike, stated that despite how much he was criticized by Peterside, Transport Minister Rotimi Amaechi refused to give him (Peterside) the ticket.

According to the governor, Peterside’s motive for deriding him was to convince Amaechi to to give him the governorship ticket,‘but despite the criticisms, Amaechi did not only deny him the governorship ticket, but he also refused to give him a second term at NIMASA’.

He said: “Somebody who cannot even get the ticket of his party, whom I defeated since 2015 thinks if he abuses me they will give him ticket, but they didn’t give him. Now you have abused me and your master refused to give you ticket. Your master refused to give you second term at NIMASA.


Reacting Peterside refuted that his criticism of Wike was not personal neither did it had anything to do with his personal ambition but for the love for Rivers. He described Wike as ‘a colossal failure whose only legacy was unbridled tyranny’.

He said: “Maybe, Wike expected that I kept silent while he shamelessly and brazenly raped Rivers State that our founding fathers laboured to achieve, some with their blood? Or should I have remained silent, or hailed him, as he continued his unbridled and unexplainable greed exhibited in his continual, forceful seizure of developed and undeveloped public and private property which he converted into personal use?

“Or Wike thought that he had conquered Rivers and reduced her citizens to zombies and mannequins that nobody would raise their head to ask him appropriate questions on accountability?

“He said I have been criticizing him for the past seven years so I can get APC governorship ticket; nothing can be more run off at the mouth than this statement. Proud to say I am a patriotic stakeholder who cannot watch Wike’s maladministration and corruption in the last seven years. His incoherent and uncouth statement in the church shows clearly his poor upbringing, and that he was under the influence of alcohol, as always.

“I have consistently and constructively engaged Wike not for any personal ambition, but strictly for what he represents – gross incompetence, corruption, greed and lack of vision…”
