Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike Resigns To Pursue Rivers State Governorship

share on:

Nyesom Wike, the Minister of Education, has reportedly submitted a letter of resignation to president Goodluck Jonathan.

According to The Paradigm, the minister’s resignation is to enable him pursue his ambition of becoming the next governor of Rivers State after the expiration of the tenure of the incumbent, Hon. Rotimi Amaechi.

The minister was said to have briefed the President of his intention to contest for the Rivers governorship election in 2015, to which he got the approval of the President to challenge the growing profile of the Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi.

The resignation which is expected to take effect from April 1, 2014 has gotten the approval of the president.

Wike’s resignation will be announced next week Wednesday during the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.

Wike has been in running battle with Governor Amaechi, notorious for using the former Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mbu, who is a very close ally of the President’s wife, Mrs Patience Jonathan, to attack the interest of the governor.

  3. That may be wrong move Mr Wike, because, you have apparently spoiled your image as educational minister. Apparently, it is established here that you can’t deliver unless if you change for good anyway. I wish you success. But just note this that you must fear God and openly apologise to the Nigerian youth for playing with their future for failing to do what were within your power to do when you ought to have done it.

  4. No body wil support u. Come to think of it, u denied students their right and u are expecting their brothers, parents, sisters, uncles, etc. And students them self to vote for u. My brother go and sit down ok. says:
