The bid to win re-election as governor of Rivers State in the 2019 General Elections was a hard and long struggle for Governor Nyesom Wike who ran for re-election on platform of the Peoples Democratic Party. Not only did the election held in a tense atmosphere in the state, there were also alleged moves to use federal might to hijack the electoral process and see that Wike would not win the election but in the end, though, Wike won and was sworn in by the Chief Judge of the State, Justice Iyayi-Lamikanra on May 29, 2019, to start another term in office.

Over a decade after falling victim to one of the most devastating conspiracy plots in the chequered history of politics in Nigeria, it is quite obvious that the time has come for Peter O. Odili, former Executive Governor of Rivers State, and erstwhile front runner in the botched 2006 PDP Presidential primaries, to come out of the neutral corner and return to the centre state of political action, both locally and nationally.

There is no way the history of Nigeria's Fourth democratic Republic would be written without mentioning Prince Uche Secondus, current National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
May 30th, 2019 represents the 52nd anniversary of the declaration of the Republic of Biafra. I have written the following contribution to help mark that day. I hope it goes a long way to show where and when the trouble and challenges all started. I also hope that it widens and stimulates the debate about the plight of the Igbo in the Nigerian state and to enlighten those that may not know why it is that so many young Igbos feel strongly about the concept of Biafra.
