Excessive alcohol damaged your internal organs and not poisoning – Atiku Abubakar aide tells ex-Governor Nyesom Wike

Jun 20, 2023

The Special Assistant on Public Communication to Atiku Abubakar, Phrank Shaibu has advised former Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State to reduce his consumption of alcohol following revelation by Wike that his liver and kidneys failed due to “poisoning”.

Wike had at a Thanksgiving ceremony on Sunday, June 18, where he said he was poisoned at his party’s secretariat in 2018 and this resulted in him suffering kidney and liver failure. He said he was flown to Beirut for medical treatment but got healed while in the hospital.

Reacting to Wike’s claim, Shaibu in a statement released, said Wike had always been open about his love for alcohol, especially whiskey, which he has even admitted drinking in the early hours of the day. Shaibu said given the rate of Wike’s drinking, it was likely he had alcohol poisoning and not food poisoning.

“Governor Wike has always been open about his intense and indubitable love for whiskey. He even said back in March, that he was sipping a 40-year-old whiskey with his friends while watching Atiku and others protesting on TV at 11am. Governor Wike has also been seen drinking and dancing in video, including one he did with former Governor Rochas Okorocha. If Wike was indeed poisoned and his organs failed, he ought to be a teetotaller by now and reduce his drinking.

I am not a medical doctor, but it is general knowledge that excessive alcohol consumption leads to high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, liver disease, digestive problems; and cancer of the breast, mouth, throat, oesophagus, voice box, liver, colon and rectum.

Other ailments associated with excessive drinking include: weakening of the immune system, increasing the chances of getting sick; learning and memory problems, including dementia and poor sexual performance. Wike should look inwards. Let us assume that he was poisoned by food. Was his hoarse and husky voice also caused by food poisoning?”

Shaibu advised Wike to go for confession and not thanksgiving, due to his ‘’malpractices” in the election in Rivers State.

“Governor Wike ought to be doing confessions rather than thanksgiving. Psalm 51:17 says God does not despise a broken spirit and a contrite heart. Wike has not shown any remorse for the many electoral malpractices he has committed. Under Wike’s reign, Rivers State – which was famously known as the treasure base of the nation – became Rivers of blood. That is the legacy of Wike. His thanksgiving cannot be acceptable to God unless there is first repentance” Shaibu said
