Nigeria’s Problem Is Marginalization – Governor Wike

Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, said the marginalisation of the minority ethnic nationalities in the country caused much of Nigeria’s challenges.

Mr Wike said this on Tuesday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, when the management of the New Telegraph newspaper visited him at the Government House to present its nomination of the Rivers governor as the Political Icon of the Year 2022.

Many of the Nigerian challenges which includes; high rates of inflation, hunger and poverty, Nigeria is grappling with serious security challenges, ranging from Boko Haram insurgency in the North-east, violent Biafra agitation in the South-east, and kidnapping and banditry across the country.He said it was becoming a “more difficult task” to convince Nigerians that the PDP can rescue the country.

“The problem in this country today is not only as a result of the banditry or kidnapping, no. Part of the issue that has to do with security is the issue of marginalisation.

“And I continue to tell our people or those who believe that they are dominant, you need peace for you to preside over those who you think do not have the number. You need peace. If there is no peace, it will be difficult,” the governor said.

Mr Wike and other governors who are his allies have been demanding the resignataion of the National Chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu, to pave the way for a southerner to lead the party in order to achieve a “regional balance”.
