Chief Nyesom Wike, the governor-elect of Rivers State, on Tuesday May 26, revealed that he will not fight the in-coming government of President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari. He said he would rather co-operate with Buhari’s administration in order to attract benefits to Rivers state.
The governor-elect spoke in Port Harcourt during a pre-inauguration lecture titled: ‘Democracy and good governance: Towards a New Rivers State’ as part of programmes for his inauguration on May 29.
He said: “The mandate given to him by the people of Rivers is not to fight Buhari, but to work for the greater good of the state.
Hear him: “I will not fight Buhari. I will cooperate with his administration to attract benefits to the state.
“The people of the state did not overwhelmingly elect me to fight the administration, but to work for the greater good of our people.
“In cooperating with Buhari for development reasons, I will always bear in mind the fact that I am a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).”
