Governor Wike Promises To Stay, Face EFCC Investigations After Tenure Elapses

Governor Wike of Rivers State has declared that he will not flee or run away from the country in the face of the EFCC’s threat to arrest corrupt governors whose tenures end on May 29. Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has stated that he will not flee the country over fear of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after his tenure expires on May 29, 2023. In response to recent statements made by the EFCC.

Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, that the agency would apprehend corrupt governors whose tenures end on May 29, Wike said he would happily oblige the EFCC if invited after his tenure ends.

The message Nyesom Wike said on EFCC’s invitation. During an appearance on Channels Television’s breakfast program, Sunrise, on Monday, March 27, 2023, the Governor dismissed the threat of arrest, stating that he would not flee the country like some ex-governors had done in the past.“I’m not going to run away because of the EFCC. Why should they invite me? If they invite me, I will honour their invitation. I will not run away,” Wike affirmed. The governor’s comments suggest that he is confident in his record and has nothing to fear from the EFCC’s investigations.
