The Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has said that it’s Kano Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, who was caught pocketing dollars that should be isolated, not him.
Ganduje, who chairs All Progressive Congress (APC) Campaign Council for Edo State governorship election, had said, “We know the PDP made Wike their chairman. I assure you; we will isolate Wike in an isolation centre and before he recovers, the election is over.”
However, speaking during the inauguration of the PDP campaign council on Tuesday, Wike, who is the Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) National Campaign Council for the Edo State Governorship Election, responded to Gabduje’s statement, Wike said he would not be intimidated.
“Nobody can intimidate us in this election. Yesterday, I was told and today I read on the pages of newspapers that one Governor Ganduje said that he is going to isolate me until the election is over”, Wike said.
He stated that if Nigeria was working Ganduje should be isolated and not him adding that the people would reject APC in the Edo State election.
“If Nigeria is supposed to be a country, who is supposed to be isolated? A man who pockets dollars in babanriga from contractors is not isolated and you say that I should be isolated. In this country, where are we heading to?
“Let me tell you why they (APC) made Ganduje the chairman of the campaign council; it is because of the dollars they saw.
“But what he doesn’t understand is that we are from the Niger Delta; we shall chop his dollar and we will chop him to a coma. So, Ganduje, your dollar will not work in Edo State, we have integrity in our party”, Wike said.
