Aspirants Ignoring Rivers Shouldn’t Expect our Votes in 2023 – Wike
POLITICS DIGEST – Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has declared that anybody who despises the political capability of the state will be treated accordingly.
He stated this on Monday at the inauguration of the Orochiri-Worukwo (Waterlines junction) Flyover by the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of APC, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Wike explained that the dynamics of contemporary politics had made it unpopular to just gift votes away without the assurance of derivable benefit for the people.
According to him, “Anybody who despises the political capability of Rivers State will be meted with the same treatment.
“If you say Rivers State does not matter, Rivers State will tell you that you don’t also matter at the appropriate time. If you don’t like us, we will not like you. If you like us, we will like you.
“Nobody will use our votes for nothing. Our votes will matter and Rivers State must benefit from anybody that we are going to support.
“Politics now is no longer just vote for somebody, it is about what you will do for the people of Rivers State.”
