Wike also denied planning protest in Abuja during Christmas and according to him, the people of Rivers state gave him his mandate and he will never sell the interest of this state for whatever reason. Wike says no level of intimidation can make him sell the interest of Rivers state
Speaking when he said: “This is a turbulent period. However, we will overcome. They can cow other governors, but not me.
“None of them gave me the mandate. The people of Rivers state gave me this mandate and I will never sell the interest of this state for whatever reason. I will not bring out the money of Rivers state to sponsor other people outside the state.”
He revealed to the Christian clerics that security agencies are frustrating the security of the state to further their devilish plot to declare a state of emergency and thereafter bring a lackey to loot the state.
“DSS working for APC” He said: “If they like, let them bring all manner of accusations daily, it will not cow me. Three days ago, they sponsored protests against me in Abuja with the Police leading the protesters.
“It is so unfortunate how they can descend so low. The DSS are unhappy because I stopped them from kidnapping a judge. Till today, they are yet to invite that particular judge.” Wike added:
“I never sponsored anyone to protest. Assuming, people want to protest, are we not in a democracy?
“If I am the one who is the sponsor of the planned protest in my favour, who sponsored the protests against me. It means they are the people who sponsored the protests."
