Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Monday, alleged that some politicians campaigning ahead of the 2023 presidential election do not mean well for the country.
Saying that he is in a privileged position to know better, the governor promised to reveal the identities of the concerned persons at the appropriate time so that Nigerians can use their votes to reject them.
According to a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri, the governor spoke at the commencement of the construction of internal roads at Rumuesara, Eneka town in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.
The statement read, “Some other people are busy, putting themselves together on how they will take over leadership in Nigeria to loot the remaining ones these other people have already kept.
“I’m privileged to know and, at the appropriate time, I will tell you who these people are. You need to know what is happening in Nigeria.
“Forget about all these people running around saying they want to rescue or save you (Nigeria). Just watch to see what is going to happen next.

“All of us should be calm concerning what is happening in the PDP. In fact, nothing has happened yet. But by the grace of God, something will happen.”
He pointed out that while his administration continues to begin construction and inaugurate projects for the people of the state, detractors keep sponsoring negative media campaigns against him.
The governor stated that despite such negative media comments, his administration has not relented in offering good governance to strengthen the relationship with the people of Rivers State.
“Look at us concentrating on giving our people good governance. What is good governance? Good governance is making the people to be happy. Good governance is providing infrastructure for the people. Good governance is not about party. Providing good governance is about leadership. We are here every day flagging off projects, commissioning projects even though our tenure is coming to an end,” he said.
Wike noted how difficult it will be for seasonal politicians who have never done anything to better the lot of Rivers electorate to come to them and solicit their votes.
