Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has reacted to his Ebonyi State counterpart, Dave Umahi statement’s saying God will give Nigeria a president “who has a good heart like President Muhammadu Buhari” in 2023.
Recall Umahi while addressing State House correspondents on Monday, made his remarks after meeting with Buhari at Aso Villa, Abuja.
Concealing his reference to Umahi, Wike said that his colleague had lied.
He said President Buhari personally knows that God won’t give the Nigeria another president like him in 2023.
The governor stated this on Wednesday during a stakeholders’ meeting in Port Harcourt, as he was addressing business owners in the state over the controversy around the Value Added Tax.
Wike said, “That was how a governor was saying that he prays that Nigeria gets another President like Buhari. I said what has gone wrong with him? You mean there shouldn’t be (a) psychiatric check on the governor? Sycophancy.”
“And you know that the President knows that you are telling lies to him. He (Buhari) knows. It is unfortunate. May God help us,” he added.
