2023: Some Presidential Candidates Are Coming To Loot Nigeria, Says Wike


Nigerians have been warned to be cautious of people they will vote into power as their next president because some of the presidential candidates are only coming to loot what will be left of the All Progressives Congress (APC) government in 2023.

This revelation was given by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike who said that some politicians canvassing for votes to win the 2023 presidential election do not mean well for Nigerians but to satisfy their selfish desires.

The governor maintained that he was in a privileged position to know better, and will reveal their identities at the appropriate time so that Nigerians can use their votes to reject them.

Governor Wike spoke at the flag-off of internal roads at Rumuesara, Eneka town in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State, held on Monday. 

“Some other people are busy, putting themselves together on how they will take over leadership in Nigeria to loot the remaining ones these other people have already looted. 

“I’m privileged to know and at the appropriate time, I’ll tell you who these people are. You need to know what is happening in Nigeria. Forget about all these people running around saying they want to rescue or save you (Nigeria). Just watch to see what is going to happen next.

“All of us should be calm concerning what is happening in PDP. In fact, nothing has happened yet. But by the grace of God, something will happen.”
Governor Wike pointed out that while his administration continues to flag off and inaugurate projects for Rivers people, detractors keep sponsoring negative media campaigns against him. 
The governor stated that despite such negative media comments, his administration has not relented in offering good governance to strengthen the relationship with the people of Rivers State. 

“Look at us concentrating on giving our people good governance. What is good governance? Good governance is making the people happy. Good governance is providing infrastructure for the people. Good governance is not about party. Providing good governance is about leadership.

We are here every day flagging off projects, commissioning projects even though our tenure is coming to an end.”

Governor Wike noted how difficult it will be for seasonal politicians who have never done anything to better the lot of Rivers electorate to come to them and solicit their votes.

“Now that I have come to Eneka to provide this basic infrastructure, I can come back to Eneka and ask you to follow me, let us go there or let us stay here. Do they have what it takes to come and talk to you? Can they come and talk to you?

“It is somebody that hears from you that you have also heard from. This one you’ve not provided anything for my people, you’ve not asked them what they want, then you want to tell them where to vote.

“So, it is us that will come and meet you and say see where you’ll vote.  And I know based on our relationship, since we have not deceived you, we have not told you lies, you will follow us at the appropriate time.”

Speaking further, Governor Wike said Eneka fills a strategic place in his educational and political success story, which is why he cannot abandon its people.

According to him, he schooled at the Government Secondary School Eneka and had his council chairmanship sponsored by Senator John Azuta-Mbata, who hails from the town.

Governor Wike promised that his administration will soon commence reconstruction work at the secondary school in a bid to transform it into a modern standard learning facility. 

He urged those who have encroached and developed structures on the land to vacate the premises to avoid the wrath of the State government.

The governor used the occasion to rename the Igwurata-Eneka Road to Sam Mbata Road. And promised that the State government will accord due recognition to the paramount ruler of Eneka before the end of his tenure in 2023.
