JUST IN: Wike opens up on ‘running for third term’

Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, on Wednesday, debunked claims that he will run a third term through the governor-elect, Siminialayi Fubara.

Speaking in a media chat, monitored by POLITICS NIGERIA, Wike insisted that Fubara is a man of his own who can make his own decisions.

Fubara is a former Accountant-General of Rivers State.

“It is for him (Fubara) to make his mark. He knows the dream of the government, he knows what the government has done, that is politics,” Wike said.

“Everybody knows the importance of Rivers State. He (Fubara) does not need to seek for relevance, he is already relevant.

“Everybody determines what he or she wants to be. And I do know he is somebody who is calm. He is not the talking type, he is the quiet type, but he is an achiever.

“He knows where we have stopped, so this issue of me influencing his decisions does not hold water,” Wike said.
