Wonders shall never end in Nigerian political arena, by the time you think you have seen it all in politics, you are thrown into yet another wonder.
See Amaechi’s former Commissioner of Health, Dr.Sampson Parker kneeling down before Gov Wike, telling him: “Thank you for receiving me like a prodigal son”.
Morality and good conscience are strange bed fellows in Nigerian politics!
Dr.Parker did not actually defect today. It was in 2015 he swapped loyalty, we were actually aware!
Many concerned fellows had begged me to stop making unnecessary political enemies because of Amaechi, that I should rather inherit his friends than his foes. But did Edmund Burke not caution that “the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”.
When the Rt.Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi was the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Dr.Sampson Parker was his mother’s private physician. From that position, he began to attend Amaechi’s political meetings.Typical of Nyesom Wike, he tried to stop him. But Amaechi prevailed.That is how he became a caucus member of the Amaechi political family. Wike told me so. And eventually he became Commissioner of Health when Amaechi became governor. A juicy ministry.
The cookie crumbled in his relationship with Ameachi in 2015 soon after Dr.Dakuku Peterside became the standard bearer of the Rivers APC at the behest of his political “Nnam ukwu”(Godfather), the Rt.Hon.Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi. Dr.Sampson Parker thought he would have been the anointed one. Is that not the classical case of the butterfly who thought himself a bird, according to Ola Rotimi in the Gods Are Not To Blame? Can you imagine that? That was when he entered an unholy alliance with Nyesom Wike!
Today, he got tired of the hide and seek game, and so, decided to make the surreptitious romance public.
Now, let us see, if Wike will make him the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP in 2023. Wike has the spirit of discernment far more than Amaechi. I daresay Wike has native intelligence!
Let me say this, If a lion and a Nigerian politician ingress your coast, spare the lion and go after the Nigerian politician. Nigerian politicians are more dangerous than a lion! They are omnivorous-when hungry, they can feed on whatever available!
Last line: if Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi conquers the Presidency in 2023, those who jilted him would come back and take front rolls. Steadfastness and integrity are not rewarded in Nigerian politics, because you are offering it to men who do not have it
