The Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Nyesom Wike has claimed that due to his great achievements in the State, he can afford to go around without security protection.
Wike was inaugurating the new ultramodern Government House clinic and Administrative Building on Friday, when he made this claim.
The Governor aimed a dig at the APC-led Federal Government, when he said that despite the efforts by the Federal Government to hamper him, he is flying the PDP flag high.
He declared; “I have not disappointed the people of Rivers State and I have not disappointed the party that gave me the privilege to contribute my quota to the development of the state. But for politics, I don’t think there will be the need for any Rivers man or woman to think of any other party.”
The governor added; “I know what we passed through in the hands of the ruling government. No state government has been harassed like Rivers State government, not one, but I will never give up. I will continue to do what I think is for the best interest of the people of Rivers State because they gave me the privilege.”
“Since 2015, we have had about 15 Commissioners of Police, just to make sure Rivers State does not move forward. But nobody is God. They go to their ministers to choose Commissioner of Police for our State so that what will happen? To come and make the State ungovernable? But God does not think so,” Wike added.
