Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has vowed to fight to finish anyone working with the enemies of the State, emphasizing: “I will fight to “finish” anyone who pitches his tent with “enemies of the state.”
Governor Wike, who spoke today, August 20, at the flagging off ceremony of the construction of internal roads in Omagwa, Ikwerre Local Government Area of the State, remarked: “if anybody fights our system we will fight the person back.
“Let me tell you what you don’t understand in politics. The moment you claim to be working with us and tomorrow you shift to our enemy, we will take every might we have, we will even leave our enemy and finish you first.
“So all of you who are going back to Abuja to hold meetings with our enemies in the state, I’m going to finish you to the last.
“We removed a National Party Chairman who was not doing well. All of them were here, we all agreed, now they are going to Abuja to hold meetings with the man we removed, thinking that you will use that to fight us, we will crush them.”
And, in a swift response, the former PDP Chairman, Secondus rebuked Governor Wike over his warning against his support for Atiku Abubakar.
A terse statement by the ex-chairman’s media office reminded the governor that he would not be in power till eternity.
Secondus condemned Wike’s “disdainful threat that he will crush anybody who works with him in support of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
“Wike, you cannot crush anybody. I cannot fight or join issues with you. Only God can crush.”.
Quoting Nnamdi Azikiwe’s advisory, Secondus added: “No condition is permanent and nobody can become Governor of a state or President of this country forever.”
Secondus, a strong ally of the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, was ousted as chairman of the Party in 2021, through a strong opposition led by Wike
