Few hours ago, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State displayed a great act of bravery. He forced his way into the house of the former director general of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Joy Nunieh, who was to appear before a panel in the National Assembly and clarify some things as regards the Commission earlier today and rescued her despite police cordon.
For me, it is a great act of bravery that paints a good picture of Governor Nyesom Wike as a great warrior. As reported, police officers, at about 4 am laid siege to Joy Nunieh's apartment in Port Harcourt, preventing her from coming out of her residence.
Governor Wike as known for his courageous acts on getting to Joy's apartment, ordered the police officers out of the premises and drove with her in a convoy shortly after that.
For some people, Governor Wike went against the order of the Federal Government and this act can therefore be counted as stepping on the Federal Government toes. However, I wish to state that he did the same thing for Judges in 2019 when they were being intimidated by the Federal Government. He fought for their course and won.
Whether or not he did that for personal gain or interest, I strongly believe that this is an act of bravery that should be celebrated. Governor Wike deserves accolades!
