Evangelist Prince Nicholas Chukwujekwu Ukachukwu (MHR).

“Such derogatory statement is totally uncalled for and should not be swept under the carpet. Because we the Igbos are not commoners in this country Nigeria and the world at large. Which is why we have to address this world Press Conference to keep the records straight”.

“Wike should apologise to the Igbos for using the alleged derogating language.”That “why should an Igbo man be given such massive land and there and that he has dealt with Igbos in Port Harcourt that he will do same here in Abuja.

While speaking on the demolition, Honorable Nwoye said that there was a court order stopping such demolition which the FCT Minister had violated.

“We also want to ask Bar Nyesom Ezenwo Wike other fundamental questions on the said Asokoro land matter.Question No. 1. Was there a court order restraining the demolition? Question No. 2 If there was, why was it not obeyed”?Honorable Nwoye while buttressing his point presented copies of Ministerial approvals for the Asokoro Estate as well as copies of the court order preventing the demolition of the Estate.”

He further pointed that Wike owes the Nigerian judiciary an apology as he alleged that Mr. Wike stated that Judges were selling court orders.

“More importantly Bar Nyesom Wike a lawyer is now telling Nigerians that judges are now selling court orders hmmIn a country where Nigerians relied on the judiciary in the last election.Bar Nyesom Wike should as a matter of urgency apologise to the judiciary. Nigerians are fully aware that Bar. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike is one of the highest beneficiary of Judiciary in Nigeria”.
