Rivers: I Told Umahi And Malami Not To Waste Their Money For Campaign When They Visited Me – Wike Sends Warning To APC
The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has warned other parties especially the All Progressives Congress (APC) to desist from wasting their campaign funds in Rivers as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has already secured the state.
Wike stated this during the State Honours and Awards ceremony held at the Banquet Hall, Government House in Port Harcourt, the State capital.
“Lawyer, you must make money but here don’t worry yourself; nobody would win here,” he said during the event, urging opposition parties not to waste their resources campaigning in the State.
According to the Rivers state governor he already has a successor in the state and his choice is based on the good works of the individual.
In my state, we know who is going to be my successor. I want to advise you if you are spending money on anybody, stop!
“Here, we have a successor. It is not by my power but by what we have done in this state. It is not that I want to impose a successor. It is not true. Bring a successor and tell people why you want to bring a successor,” the governor added.
He specifically passed the message to APC chieftains present at the event, which include the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN; Governor Dave Umahim of Ebonyi State, and his Kogi State counterpart, Yahaya Bello, who were part of the awardees.
“I told David Umahi, Governor of Kogi and Abubakar Malami when they came to visit me, ‘Don’t put money here it won’t work; it is a no-go area’,” Wike boasted.
