‘Rivers not your inheritance’, Dele Momodu blasts Wike



'Rivers not your inheritance', Dele Momodu blasts Wike

Dele Momodu, the Director of Strategic Communications for the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, criticised the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, on Wednesday for acting as if he owned Rivers State.

Rivers State is neither your property nor inheritance, the celebrity publisher stated this in a post on his on X (previously Twitter) handle.

Momodu had previously lauded the former Rivers State governor for the implementation of infrastructure projects during his tenure.

He, however, stated that Wike had many flaws, among which were his lack of anger management and his forgetfulness that God has been kind to him.

The tweets partly read, “Rivers is neither your property nor perpetual inheritance. There were governors long before you cut your teeth and there must be others after you.”


Momodu said that Wike had “one tragic and fatal flaw, and yours is lack of anger management. There are other flaws, like forgetting that God has been extremely kind to you and that you will never be God, and so you should beg God to grant you the spirit of humility and the wisdom of Solomon.”

He reminded Wike of his rise to prominence from being a Local Government Chairman in the state, to a Chief of Staff, a prequel to his ministerial appointment at the FCT, saying that he (Wike) was blessed with “divine favour.”

“From a Local Government Chairman in Rivers State to Chief of Staff, to Minister of State Education, to governor for eight years and now back to Minister of the Federal Capital Territory… I do not know anyone with your kind of divine favour.


“This should satisfy you but your insatiable hunger and thirst for power is driving you into believing that you must have your way all the time. It would have been nice if you were in private business and running your personal enterprise,” Momodu stated

Momodu noted that Wike became “inconsolable” after he lost his presidential bid, adding that he “acted more like an opposition leader than a long-standing member of PDP.”

“My dear brother, this is now the crux of the matter. You can’t eat your cake and still have it. You installed a new governor in the PDP. You’re a minister in APC. And you still want to maintain absolute power in PDP.” the tweet reads further

Momodu advised Wike to allow the state governor, Sim Fubara, “to grow and be a man of his own.”


Concluding his post, the veteran journalist said, “Please, have a quiet rethink and adjust your overbearing style a bit. Sadly, you’ve allowed Fubara to demystify you.”
