Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has vowed to never betray his people in the face of threats.
When he launched the Igwuruta Internal Roads project on Wednesday, August 31, in the state’s Ikwerre Local Government Area, Wike stated he is not renowned for betrayals.
He also emphasized that he would follow Nigerians’ wishes rather than the wishes of a select group of people who think that if they are not present, then their children must be.
“Time will come when Nigerians will know this types of characters; characters that will say all kinds of things because of power; characters that will be agents to destroy their own people…they should take one-day fasting and pray for their forgiveness because from what I have seen they are almost doomed.
“There is no amount of threats that will make me betray my people. I won’t do that; what I have said today is what I will say tomorrow. Go and check our history, we are not known for being betrayals at all.
“Some people threatened that they are former generals, they are close to the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) in America; they can deal with us. I say, listen, no problem, if you are close to America’s CIA, why didn’t you use it to solve the Boko Haram problem? Nigeria has a serious problem and you are linked to CIA, why not use that contact and solve Nigeria’s problem?

“You want to use it to threaten me, who are you? I should come and do your own bidding? I will not do that; I will do the biddings of Nigerians not the biddings of a few individuals who believe that if they are not there, it must be their children; no other person should come up. I will not do that. A day shall come and Rivers State will take a decision on what to do.”
Wike, who emphasized that Rivers’ votes are not free, added that if the Independent National Electoral Commission provides justice and transparency, Nigerians will be shocked by the results of the 2023 elections.
