The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has finally broken silence on the fresh political crisis rocking Rivers state.

Wike and Governor Sim Fubara have been engaged in a fierce tussle over the control of governance and politics in the oil-rich state.

Speaking on Saturday, Wike told the people of Rivers State that he made a mistake and he is ready to correct the mistake at the appropriate time, Punch reports.

The former governor of Rivers State while addressing a grand civic reception in Ogu-Bolo, Rivers State, honouring Chief George Thompson Sekibo’s 20 years of public service, however, did not disclose the mistake he said he made.

He was, however, not specific if his choice of Fubara as his successor was the mistake he said he made.

But he assured the people that he would correct the mistake at the appropriate time.

“I want to say this clearly, in life we have made a mistake. I have made a mistake. I own it up and I say God forgive me. I have said all of you forgive me. But we will correct it at the appropriate time,” he declared.

The former Rivers governor acknowledged his fallibility, stating, “I am a human, I am bound to make a mistake. So forgive me for making a wrong judgment. So nobody should kill.”

He also said the law and due process would take its course irrespective of whatever happened.

“If they like, they can go to anybody by 2am or 4am to get injunction. The law will take its course. We must follow due process,” Wike declared.

He also said he has never demanded that anybody worship him.

“Nobody can worship man. All of us believe that it is only God we will worship. As politicians, we appreciate people who have helped us,” he said.

Wike further warned his supporters and lawmakers not to be intimidated, vowing to maintain peace in the state.

Don’t be afraid. Nobody will remove you as a lawmaker. Most of you don’t understand. This is our work. Our business is to make them fear. That is what I am doing. We will make them to be angry every day, and they will continue to make mistakes.”
