Dele Momodu, the veteran Nigerian journalist, has made an appeal to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
He urged Wike to “kill his anger” against the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Momodu said Wike should apply brakes before his anger gets out of hand and it becomes too late.
He stressed that the PDP has been Wike’s solid platform; hence the governor should kill his anger against the party.
The former PDP presidential aspirant made the call against the backdrop of Wike’s grievances against the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The governor fell out with Atiku after the PDP’s presidential primary election.
Wike is widely believed to be angry that Atiku settled for Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.
However, Momodu, in a Facebook post, titled: “My Kobo advice to Governor Nyesom Wike,” wrote: “You’re certainly one of Nigeria’s best-performing Governors, if not the best. Personally, I’m very proud of your uncommon achievements. I know you are very angry. It is your right to be.
“But I’m begging you in the name of God not to take decisions based on anger. Nigeria has been very kind to you. Rivers State has been extremely generous to you.
“GOD has blessed you beyond imagination. You have such a beautiful family. Your people love you stupendously for the services delivered to them. PDP has been your solid platform.
“You should never destroy a bridge after crossing the river. Even if you no longer need the bridge, what of your friends and family?
“I pray you kill this excessive and perpetual ANGER. It is getting out of hand. Most people around you will keep quiet for fear of losing patronage. Many politicians survive only on power. My Brother, I love you. But someone must be able to tell you the truth. No General fights on too many fronts. Please, apply the brakes, before it is too late – DELE MOMODU”
