Soku Oil Wells Disagreement To Be Resolved Politically – Jonathan

Published

on

Nyesom-WikeThe governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers State, Chief Nyesom Wike, on Tuesday said that he had obtained a promise from President Goodluck Jonathan that a political solution would be explored to resolve the disagreement between Rivers and Bayelsa states over the Soku oil wells.

The State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, had claimed that the Soku oil wells were unduly ceded to Bayelsa State because Jonathan hails from there.

But Wike, who spoke when he met traditional rulers from the coastal communities of Soku in Akuku-Toru Local Government Area, assured the people of Soku that he possessed the political will and capacity to resolve the Soku oil well conflict to the benefit of the people of the state.

Wike explained that he had informed President Jonathan on Monday evening when he attended a meeting of PDP governorship candidates at the Presidential Villa that he would be visiting Soku and the president gave him a message to deliver to people of the area.

He added, “President Jonathan asked me to say directly to you that he is an Ijaw son; he is your brother and therefore, you should not allow people to carry false propaganda to divide two brothers.

“He has asked me to tell you that it is not correct to say that he took Soku oil wells and gave them to Bayelsa State. President Jonathan asked me to tell you that the Soku Oil well conflict started earlier between Bayelsa and Rivers states, but that it will be sorted out politically.

“We have the political will and capacity to resolve this conflict. I will not be a party to ceding any part of Rivers State to another state”.

    Which do you prefer- Handing the oil wells to one community once and for all or taking the wells and giving it to a Northerner?. Your guess is as good as mine. So we should work together so GEJ’s re-election bid won’t be undermined.
