Mr. Nyesom Wike, Governor of River State, has revealed plans by unnamed perons to kill him.
Wike’s latest outburst comes on the eve of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP’s crucial National Executive Committee, NEC and the Board of Trustees, BOT meetings. Both meetings are scheduled to hold tomorrow, September 7 and 8, 2022.
The two meetings were called by PDP to finalize the campaign time-table and to also address the challenges posed by Wike’s consistent tantrums and vigorous discussions with presidential candidates of the opposition parties.
Wike spoke on Tuesday when he inaugurated a new Faculty of Agriculture for Rivers State University and commissioned the construction of residential blocks for the faculty in Etche Local Government Area of the state.
He said, all those plotting to kill him in the ongoing crisis rocking the PDP, will die first before they get to him, just as he added that, Rivers had since 1999 provided more support in terms of votes and resources than any other State.
Governor Wike insisted that, it’s impossible for anyone to buy him with enticing appointment at the national level.
“Don’t rush! At the appropriate time, we will take decisions on what to do.
“Since 1999, we have brought the highest votes for the PDP. I challenge any state to say they brought more votes than Rivers. Since 1999 I challenge any state in terms of support for the PDP to say it had supported the party more than Rivers.
“Then since 1999 show me one federal project in this state. If you want our votes, tell me what you will give to Rivers.
“Nothing can be free again. Enough is enough of using Rivers and thinking that we are foolish people, we don’t know what to do with our money,” Wike angrily said.
“Enough is enough of using Rivers people thinking that they will bring the votes and when they bring, you will push them away. Tell us what you are going to do for the people of Rivers not for me.
“There is nothing any of them can do for me. I am interested in my state. Nobody can buy me.” The two-terms governor of the oil rich state said.
