ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has vowed that the State will not cede its governorship position to the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC).
Wike stated this yesterday while speaking to his Lagos State counterpart, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Governor Sanwo-Olu was in Rivers State to commission the Orochiri -Worukwo (Waterlines junction) Flyover in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
During the event, Wike told the Lagos Governor not to be deceived by some propagandists claiming they were coming to reclaim the State.
Wike said the former administration in the State had looted the State’s treasury, stressing that they would not be allowed to return to office.
He said, “My guest from Lagos State, let nobody tell you story that anybody will come here to win as governor of Rivers State. It will not happen.
“Those who looted the treasury of the State will not come here to be governor of Rivers State and I have challenged them.
“I am fully in charge. I am not that kind of governor people will go to Abuja and hold meetings against. I am fully in charge here.”
It would be recalled that Governor Wike had accused the administration of the former Governor of the State, Rotimi Amaechi of allegedly transferring $50 million to a private account from the State Treasury.
