Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike has come down on the Nigerian media, saying that these days there are no journalists but press men.
Wike, who spoke at the Eneka Road Roundabout, venue of the flag-off ceremony for the construction of Eneka -Igbo Etche Road dualisation project, promised more “trouble” in the PDP.
“They said I had conversation with BBC, where is the picture, where is the video? You know these days we don’t have journalists again, we have press men. You can see people not being able to give out correct information. You see newspapers houses that are now running election. You see television houses standing for election.
“Wike had interview with BBC. Wike said we had a deal with so, so and so. Meanwhile no video, no audio. And some of you waste your time to listen to such things. Don’t you know that when I want to do something I’ll do it. Don’t you know? Do you need to speculate? You don’t need to speculate. They say there is trouble, there is no trouble. What we have is introduction to trouble that will come.”
The aggrieved governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), better known as G5, had travelled recently to Europe.
Some media outfits had reported so many things without any pictorial or audio, to affirm their claims that the G5 met with a presidential candidate in Europe.
