The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has hit out at his Ebonyi State partner, Dave Umahi, who said God will give Nigeria a president “who has a decent heart like President Muhammadu Buhari” in 2023.
Umahi had offered the comments while tending to State House reporters on Monday, subsequent to meeting with Buhari at Aso Villa in Abuja.
In any case, Wike, in a hidden reference to Umahi, said that his associate had lied.
Wike guaranteed that even Buhari himself realizes that God will not give the country another president like him in 2023.
The lead representative expressed this during a partners’ gathering in Port Harcourt, the state capital, while tending to entrepreneurs.
Wike said: “That was the way a lead representative was saying that he supplicates that Nigeria gets another President like Buhari.
“I said what has turned out badly with him? You mean there shouldn’t be (a) mental keep an eye on the lead representative? Sycophancy.
“Furthermore, you realize that the President realizes that you are lying to him. He (Buhari) knows.
“It is grievous. May God help us.”
