2023: Wike Promises More Intense Political Engagement Ahead Polls

Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, is promising a more intense political engagement from his camp ahead of next year’s elections, saying his strategies will choke his opponents, IgbereTV reports 

Governor Wike stated this on Friday during the commissioning of the Rivers House of Assembly residential Quarters, in response to some media publications.

The publications in question were that the Governor has removed the insignia of the PDP, including its flag from the Rivers State government House and has also sued the party, its presidential candidate, and the Governor of Sokoto State over the outcome of the Presidential primary.

He said the publications were the handiwork of his detractors who he claimed are supporters of the presidential candidate of his party, Atiku Abubakar.

 

Governor Wike dismissed both reports as false and warned the said Atiku supporters to allow him to concentrate on governance.

He, however, promised to begin real-time politics in a short while after completing the series of project inauguration and flag off, vowing to “choke them”.

Wike also warned Atiku to be wary of those who pledge support for him, accusing such persons of being the same people that thwarted Atiku’s chance of winning the 2019 Presidential election.

On why he invited the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, to commission the project in Port Harcourt, Governor Wike said the federal lawmaker helped his administration to access the Paris Club Refund, part of which was used in executing the House of Assembly Quarters project.

He said he holds the Speaker in high esteem, desire being one of the PDP leaders who plotted against him being elected the Speaker of the House in 2019.

According to him, he does not regret the action, because he was playing the role deserving of an opposition figure, even though some of those who plotted with him later betrayed him and turned around to support Mr. Gbajabiamila to emerge the presiding officer
