In the midst of the ongoing political crisis in Rivers State, former governor Nyesom Wike has issued a stern warning to politicians, urging them not to dismantle the ladder they used to ascend to exalted positions.
Wike made the statement on Saturday during an address at his residence in Port Harcourt, the state capital, where he was receiving traditional rulers from Ogbaland who came to felicitate with him on his birthday.
Wike offered a cautionary message to the Governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara, advising him not to dismantle the ladder he utilized to ascend and to ensure others have the opportunity to reach the pinnacle as well.
“Don’t pull the ladder that you use in climbing. When you are coming down, the ladder may not be there. And leave the ladder too so that other people can also climb the ladder. ” He said.
According to RoyalTimes, the political tension in Rivers State has seen Wike embroiled in a dispute with his successor and the current governor, Siminalayi Fubara.
