We are not second class citizens of this country – Wike vows to enforce open grazing ban


Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has vowed to enforce the open grazing ban Southern Governors issued in Asaba.

In his speech at a civic reception organized in his honour by the Ogoni Ethnic Nationality of Rivers State in Bori, headquarters of Khana Local Government Area on Saturday May 16, Wike stated that their demands must be respected and that the people of the south are “not second class citizens”.

He added that he has taken further steps to fulfill what the Southern Governors said in Asaba and If anybody wants to die over it, they should “go and die and hang themselves on electric pole.”

Wike said;

“Look, I have been in government, I am in opposition, nobody can cow me.

“Magnus (Abe), they know, their government cannot cow me. I will say what I will say and I will do what is right for my people. Nobody will do me anything. I will die the day God says it is my day. Nobody can take my life when it is not time for me to die. So, let nobody be afraid.

“Let me also use this opportunity to say, all those who are saying why should Southern Governors ban grazing – I have taken further steps to fulfill what the Southern Governors said in Asaba. If anybody wants to die, go and die and hang yourself on electric pole.

“We have taken a position and we are not going back. Enough is enough; we are not second class of citizens of this country. We also own this country and we must partake in what is happening in this country.”
