The Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike in a new interview with Channels Television spoke on how he courted controversies and fought political battles in the course of his more than two years as governor.
He also spoke about his accusations against the police and his relationship with his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi.
See excerpts from the interview below…
Do you ever think that the relationship between yourself and himself will ever mend?
I don’t want people to see us as so important people in the state. Why is it so particular that our relationship will normalise? Why? Why are we attaching so much about a relationship?
Because people believe that if the relationship between the both of you mends, there will be political stability in Rivers State…
I don’t think so. The issue is for you to understand that you have served the state, you are no longer in charge of the state. Therefore, the government in place must be allowed to do their work. (Saying) ‘Having lost out, I will never allow peace to reign’ – that is not a good thing to do.
You blame him for the instability?
But who is causing the crisis? Or the seeming crisis that appears to be in the state?
