The Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, Chief Nysom Wike has assured the 25 embattled Rivers lawmakers that nobody can use the court to remove them from the state house of assembly.

Wike, gave the assurance on Saturday at St Martins Church Field Ogu town, Ogu/Bolo Local Government Area in Rivers State during the Grand Civic reception organised in honour of Senator George Thompson Sekibo, who celebrated 20 years of meritorious service at the National Assembly and 36 years of his life in Public Service.

The FCT Minister who had been at loggerheads with the state Governor Sir Siminalayi Fubara in recent months, declared that despite the political maneuvering and clandestine movements to procure court injunctions against the lawmakers, nobody can sack them from the assembly, urging the lawmakers loyal to him not to be frightened.

Recall that on Friday, a state high Court sitting in Port Harcourt restrained the 25 lawmakers from parading themselves as members of the state assembly and to desist forthwith from dealing with the executive arm of the state government.

Wike said, “So nobody should kill himself. Let me say it clearly, do not be frightened that anybody will remove you as an Assembly member. Most of you do not understand, this is our work. I have no other work than to make them angry everyday. They will continue to make mistakes everyday and they will keep being in trouble everyday.

“If they like, they can go to anybody’s house by 2am to secure court injunction, but foul, the law will take its course. We are not afraid, we follow due process. We will not arm anybody to fight for us.”

The Minister, while also reacting to an earlier assertion credited to Governor Fubara insinuating that he was not going to worship any man, clarified that he did not ask anybody to worship him.

“I have never told anybody to worship me. Nobody can worship man. All of us believe that we only have one God and

is only that God we will worship and we will continue to worship that God.

“We are politicians, we appreciate people who have helped us. Ogu/Bolo people, why I came to ask you to support me, you supported me. Did I worship you? But I have to appreciate you. If you did not support me I would not have been in the position that I am in.

“So where does the issue of worship come from?” He queried.

Wike also harped on the importance of gratitude, saying since God passes through people to lift people, it is the appreciation of the beneficiaries to his benefactor God would feel appreciated

“I came because I respect people who appreciate what God has done for them, who appreciate what God used people to do for them. God does not come down to help people. God uses people to help people. So when you have been helped and you appreciate them and then God will know that you have appreciated him.

“I want to say this clearly, in life we have made a mistake, we’ll we have made the mistake and there is nothing we can do about it.

“I have made a mistake and I have said God forgive me, and all of you forgive me, but we will correct that mistake in the appropriate time. I am a human being and I am bound to make mistakes. My judgment might be wrong so forgive me,”he added.…Continue The Full Reading.>’.
