Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has declared that he would do the “bidding of Nigerians” and not that “ a few people who believe that if they are not there it should be their children,”
Wike made the declaration on Wednesday in Port Harcourt while reacting to an alleged threats by some retired Nigerian generals over his lingering crises with the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Atiku Abubakar.
It was alleged that some retired Nigerian military chiefs had threatened to invoke their links to the America’s Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to “deal” with the “recalcitrant” governor over his continued confrontation with Atiku and the leadership of the PDP.
Reacting to the alleged threat Wike said that no one was capable of forcing him to do anything contrary to what would benefit his state and Nigeria as a whole.
“I said listen, no problem. If you are close to the American CIA, why don’t you use it to solve the Boko Haram problem. Is it on my body (me) you’ll use it?
“Nigeria has a serious problem and you are close to the CIA, you know them as former generals, why not use that contact and solve Nigeria’s problem.
“You want to use it to threaten me. Who are you that I should come and do your own biddings? I say no to that.
“I will do the biddings of Nigerians, not the biddings of a few people who believe that if they are not there, it should be their children.
“No other child should come up outside them. I will not do that. So, all of us, prepare because a day shall come and Rivers State shall take a decision on what to do.”
