wpid-Chief-Nyesom-Wike-Supervising-Minister-of-Educationjpg1.jpgThe attention of the?Opobo Patriots?- a fully registered non-political organisation – has been drawn to a publication announcing the purported endorsement of the Junior Minister for Education, Bar. Nyesom Wike for governor of Rivers State in 2015.

As?bonfide?members of the organisation, we know that the purported endorsement is a grand forgery concocted by the Junior Minister and his cohorts in the name of a reputable organisation like the?Opobo Patriots?to hoodwink, confuse and enlist the unmerited support of the Club members and respected members of the general public who have come to accord the club enormous respect due to its pedigree and those of its members over the years.

We would like to clearly state that, as a deliberate club policy, the?Opobo Patriots?had never, in its many years of existence, forayed into the uncertain arena of politics. That remains the position of the club till date.

However, should the need arise for the club to consider endorsing anyone for the 2015 governorship of Rivers State, such a decision will be guided by such hallowed principles as CHARACTER, CAPACITY, CONSISTENCY, EQUITY, JUSTICE, FAIRNESS, LOYALTY & PATRIOTISM. Going by those lofty ideals, it is our strong opinion that Bar. Nyesom Wike is manifestly unqualified, and indeed, will not be in a position to earn or merit such an endorsement considering his antecedents.

May we use this opportunity to, once again, call on our numerous respected members and the general public, who hold the?Opobo Patriots?in high esteem, to disregard the purported endorsement of the Junior Minister by the Club as such endorsement is only a figment in the evil and infantile imagination of the Junior Minister and his misguided cohorts.
