Governor Nyesom Wike

Biafra Nations League, BNL, has lambasted the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, describing him as a man who does not know his roots.

The group described as false Wike’s claims that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, was trying to rename the State.

In a statement made available to DAILY POST on Saturday and signed by the Deputy National Leader of BNL and Head of Operations, BBS Media, Ebuta Akor Takon, the group described the Governor as a talkative who lacks focus.

BNL accused Wike of trying to create ethnic tension in the State, adding that the Governor who denied being Igbo does not know the history of Rivers State and Niger Delta as a region.

The group pointed out that it was not possible for any group to rename a town if the indigenes of such town are not involved.

“The Governor does not have a tribe and acts as confused person,” the group said, insisting that the, “Niger Delta region of today includes Imo and Abia and they joined region same day Edo, Ondo, Cross River and Akwa Ibom States were included.

“We were never part of Niger Delta, it is an Ijaw region by geographical definition, it was Obasanjo that created this confusion when he added other areas as part of the region.
