Rives State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike on he is tired of being a governor and will not contest even if the constitution gives him third term.
Wike said this on Tuesday after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) presented him his certificate of return as the re-elected governor of Rivers state.
He dedicated his victory to the people of Rivers state who he said overwhelmingly voted for him.
He said, “Nobody can be more than the state. So, for me, I want total peace in Rivers state. All of us should come back, wherever you are, whether in the federal or local government, come and work for the interest of the state.
“I’ll not be governor forever. I only have four more years. After the four years, I’m gone. The constitution does not allow for third term. Even if it does, bye bye, I’m tired. I’ll not,” he was quoted to have said.
Wike however rebuked the Nigerian Army for the role they allegedly played during the 2019 general elections in the state.
Going further, Wike attributed everything going on in his life to God saying: “I use to tell my wife every day whenever I wake up, I say thank God, you never can tell the next day, what will happen. And any day I have opportunity like this, I’ll speak my mind. I am not afraid; nobody has monopoly to take my life. I will die the day God says I will die.”
