Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, claimed on Monday that some politicians running for office in 2023 had no good intentions for the nation.
The governor pledged to divulge the names of the concerned individuals at the proper time so that Nigerians might use their ballots to reject them, claiming that he is in a position of privilege to know better.
The governor spoke during the beginning of the construction of internal roads at Rumuesara, Eneka town in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State, according to a statement from his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri.
The statement read, “Some other people are busy, putting themselves together on how they will take over leadership in Nigeria to loot the remaining ones these other people have already kept.
“I’m privileged to know and, at the appropriate time, I will tell you who these people are. You need to know what is happening in Nigeria.
“Forget about all these people running around saying they want to rescue or save you (Nigeria). Just watch to see what is going to happen next.
“All of us should be calm concerning what is happening in the PDP. In fact, nothing has happened yet. But by the grace of God, something will happen.”
He emphasized that despite the fact that his administration is still breaking ground and inaugurating projects for the state’s residents, his opponents are still funding hostile media campaigns against him.
The governor claimed that in spite of these unfavorable media reports, his administration has continued to provide good governance in order to improve relations with the residents of Rivers State.
“Look at us concentrating on giving our people good governance. What is good governance? Good governance is making the people to be happy. Good governance is providing infrastructure for the people. Good governance is not about party. Providing good governance is about leadership. We are here every day flagging off projects, commissioning projects even though our tenure is coming to an end,” he said.
Wike remarked on how challenging it would be for inexperienced politicians to approach the Rivers electorate and ask for their support given that they have never improved their situation.
