Why I congratulated President Buhari on Tribunal victory – Wike
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has revealed why he decided to congratulate President Buhari on his victory at the Presidential Election Tribunal.
According to Wike, he openly congratulated the president unlike other PDP governors who didn’t but go see him in the middle of the night.
Wike made this known at St Lukes Anglican Church where he attended the Funeral Service in honour of Late Madam Blessing Awuse.
He said: ” I am sure all of you are surprised that I congratulated Buhari. Is it not good for me to congratulate him, than to go to his house in the night?”
“So many PDP Governors go to see him in his house in the night. I have never gone and I will not go. I won’t go.”
“We are the only state that the Federal Government refused to pay us our money used to execute Federal projects because I don’t go to see him in the night and I won’t go. He is not my friend, he is not doing well, but he won in court, should I say that the court did wrong, no.”
“President Buhari, congratulations and carry Nigerians along. Unify the country, the country is too divided. I am saying what is right. What I will do, I will do, what I will not do, I will not do”.
In addition, Wike stated that politics is a game of interest and that he believes members of the All Progressives Congress in his state will attract Federal Government projects.
‘Politics is a game of interest. And my only interest is Rivers State . Anything that is against the interest of Rivers State, I will not agree.
“These people sold us out, thinking that they are doing Governor Wike. It is the State that you are offending, because I am just one person “.
