The Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike has stated that he will not be interested in a ministerial position at the end of his tenure as Governor.
This comes following claims that he is demanding to be a Minister, as one of the conditions to work for the Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.
Speaking on Tuesday, during the commissioning of the newly constructed VIP lounge at the Port Harcourt International Airport Omagwa, Wike said he’s not interested in becoming a minister.
He said “only one person can be a minister from a state, I will not be a minister. I will not. I am not a liability, Rivers State is an asset.
“So if you don’t want to win an election, it’s your business. I’m not the one running the election.
“He who wears the shoes knows where it pinches him”.
So allow Rivers State to continue to do what they are doing by using our projects to campaign to our people.
“You want to support a candidate, you are not at home you’re in Abuja.
“Come home and campaign and work for the party.
“Stop this Abuja politics of carrying rumours to the candidate”.
