The governor of Rivers of State, Nyesom Wike, has accused some politicians in the country of making false promises, saying he pities poor Nigerians who are at the receiving end.
Governor Wike made the statement on Thursday at the commissioning of the Ikoku flyover by Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in Rivers State.
According to him: “What pains in this country is that some of us, all of us, I pity the poor Nigerians, I pity them, some people come to tell me, support this person and I asked, do you know him?
“What I hear is people go to town meetings and they show all kinds of things they say. They say they will implement restructuring, they will make sure that every zone will have a member in the security council, that it is not good for one zone to control all the security chiefs.
“You see, but it is good for one zone to occupy all party positions. You see how Nigerians are. See how we are. I will implement that every zone will be represented, I will implement..that is the debate on TV because everybody wants Nigerians to say oh yes, but no Nigerian wants to say ‘let us start from the party’.”
