Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, has come under fire from Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State as the party’s internal crisis continues.
Wike advised anyone making threats in Abuja to think twice before doing so or they may find themselves in trouble.
The governor said this while pointing out that the state could no longer serve as a garbage dump.
The governor made this announcement on Monday at the official launch of the building of Elele Internal Roads in the Ikwerre Local Government Area.
According to the governor, Rivers State is very powerful in the grand scheme of things at the federal level, thus it only makes sense that any support given by the state should be returned.
Despite Rivers State’s contribution to the PDP, he pointed out; the state had nothing to show for it.
“Let me use this opportunity to tell you. People should understand. Rivers State is very strong as far as this country is concerned.”
“I have told people. Rivers State is not a dumping ground and will never be a dumping ground. If we give you support, we believe you can reciprocate, so nobody should threaten us, no political party can threaten Rivers State, not one.”
“So all those who are opening their mouth in Abuja to threaten Rivers State, think twice before you have a problem,” Wike said.
