The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has threatened to crush anyone working for the former National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus in the state ahead of the 2023 presidential elections.
It could be recalled that Prince Secondus is one of the strong allies of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the party presidential flagbearer in the forthcoming general elections.
Speaking at the flagging off ceremony of the construction of the internal roads in Omagwa, Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state on Saturday, Governor Wike threatened to fight to finish, maintaining that he will “finish” anyone who pitches his tent with “enemies of the state
Wike said, if anybody fights our system, that they will fight the person back. He went on to say that, he will leave his enemy and finish you first
All of you, who are going to Abuja to hold meetings with their enemies in this state, he is going to finish it to the last.
He said you can’t come here, gain from the state, be a contractor, get money, then move to Abuja to hold meeting with our enemy and you say I will leave you free, no I will not leave you free.
Nyesom Wike also directed security agencies to arrest Chinyere Igwe, federal lawmaker and owner of the sealed Petrol Station for alleged involvement in illegal oil bunkering in Port Harcourt.
Igwe is one of those politicians loyal to the PDP’s Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
