Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has stated that the Presidency has not informed him of President Muhammadu Buhari’s proposed visit to the state.
He, however, said the president’s visit might be aimed at reviving the fortunes of the All Progressive Congress (APC) that is dead in the state.
Flagging off the reconstruction of Egbelu Street and construction of link roads along East-West Road in Rumuodara, Obio Akpor Local Government Area yesterday, Wike said the federal government has not informed him on the president’s visit and the reason behind his visit.
He said: “I hear they say that the President is coming to our state. I have not been told the President is coming and why he is coming. He has the right to come to any state.
“Maybe the President is coming to make sure that he will improve the fortunes of the APC that is dead in Rivers State.
“Apart from Jesus Christ, we don’t know of anyone who has risen a dead thing. APC is a dead party in Rivers State. No matter how you fast and pray, it will never wake up.”
Wike charged Rivers people not to be bothered with the politics or otherwise of the visit, because the state is very peaceful.
