By Jennifer S Kuwanta

Former Governor of River State, Nyesom Wike, on Sunday, alleged that he was poisoned at the secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 2018 during his governorship campaign for a second tenure.

According to the former governor, who disclosed this during a special Thanksgiving service organised by his family at the St. Peters Deanery, Rumuepirikom, Obio-Akpor area of the state, his liver and kidneys stopped working and it took the intervention of God and doctors to save his life.

Narrating how it all happened, the former governor said he was flown to Beirut at midnight, where doctors informed him that his liver and kidneys were gone and at that moment, everybody around him became a suspect.

Wike said: “God was in charge, everybody who knew how we came to power in 2015, knew it was turbulent.

“But God saw us through. When you are in office, many people think things are going well with you. Nobody wants to find out the problems you are facing as a human.

“In December 2018, it was the day my former Chief of Staff was going to have Thanksgiving. I was to attend that Thanksgiving. From that Sunday on, I never came down from my room. It was bad.

“But those who attended the January 1 state banquet of 2019 will know that I never spoke that day. I just sat down there and told the deputy governor to speak on my behalf. I thought it was over.

“I didn’t know I had been poisoned at our party’s secretariat, the doctors, after some treatments, returned and told me my organs had started working again.”
