  1. Wike, I am beginning to be disappointed in you. You talk too much, and your bragging is becoming too much. Leave APC alone at this time. Please do something that will be beneficial to your people. Anambra, Lagos/Kebbi, Ebonyi and most other states have all come up with something tangible in Agriculture. Please leave violence alone and seek other ways to help that state. You have not done anything for Rivers, more especially, you and Ekiti man, and too much talk talk will not help your states. Please save your states from total collapse. How are you sure these boys and girls whom you do everything humanaly possible to win elections will not do to you the same thing you did to your almighty Amaechi? Oga Wike, who is watching your back? This is a million dollar question. A word they say is enough for the wise.
