The Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike has in a recent interview stated that he is not Igbo even though he has name that sounds Igbo.
The controversial politician who is from Ikwere in Rivers stated that although he answers a name that sounds like other Igbo names, but he is not Igbo.
He made this known during an interview with Ovation Publisher, Dele Momodu. The governor was speaking over his decision to clamp down on the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra in the state.
He added that even if he should concede that he is Igbo, should he now allow some miscreants to destablize the state just because he is Igbo?
Many people have however condemned the governor for denying his Igbo roots, saying he will regret it in the future. They argued that Ikwere people of Rivers are known to have Igbo roots which cannot be denied.
