Ex-lawmaker dares Wike, tells him to cede governorship ticket to Ogoni.

Following Rivers State governor, Nyesome Wike’s criticism of the Ogoni clean up, Former Deputy Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Leyii Kwanee, has challenged the governor, to concede the 2019 Governorship ticket to Ogoni people.

Kwanee said the move would show Wike’s love for Ogoni people, adding that criticizing the implementation of the UNEP report did not mean the governor love the Ogonis.

“It is Governor Wike who is playing politics with the Ogoni clean-up and we want to appeal to the Governor to leave Politics out of this matter because he had every opportunity to implement the UNEP report under Jonathan but nothing was done.

“If his Excellency the Governor of Rivers state is telling us that he loves the Ogoni more than ourselves then he should concede the Governorship ticket of his party to an Ogoni son come 2019,” he said.

Kwanee, who represented Khana Constituency 11, said the Federal Government had shown enough commitment to alleviate the hardship of Ogoni people than the immediate past administration where he served as a minister.
