The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Wednesday alleged that a leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is lobbying to become the chief of staff to the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar.
Wike who did not reveal the man’s name wondered why at the age of eighty a man would lobby for the position of chief of staff.
Governor Wike accused the man of planning to eat his children’s and grandchildren’s future.
He further stated that such persons don’t care if their people are destroyed because of their personal interests.
Wike said this during the flag-off of the construction of internal roads in Igwurita Community in the Ikwerre local government area.
He said, “What do they tell their children? People who like to eat their share, eat their children’s share, eat their grandchildren’s share.
“When somebody at the age of eighty-something years is lobbying to be chief of staff; what will his children lobby for? I have said a time will come when Nigerians will know these types of characters, characters that will like to say all kinds of things because of power. Characters that will be agents of destroying their people.
“They don’t care even if their people are destroyed. Let it be that they have something. May God forgive them. They should take one day, fast and pray for their forgiveness because they are almost doomed.”
