Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said he won’t “run away” from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after handing over on May 29, 2023.
Wike who spoke on Wednesday, March 29, at the commissioning of Rumuigbo Internal Road Network in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area in the oil-rich South-South state, said he has nothing to fear if the anti-graft agency comes to probe his administration.
The Rivers state Governor said;
“I am happy I am leaving office fulfilled. I’m leaving office with my shoulders high. I am leaving office very well. I’m not leaving office to run away so that EFCC would not come; I’m leaving office and I will stay here; I am not going anywhere. When the EFCC come, go and show them the projects.”
Wike also expressed gratitude to God, saying everything he asked for during the 2023 general elections was realized – a Southern President and a successor.
