The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has declared that the state will vote against politicians who do not like the state.
Governor Wike said this on Monday at the commissioning of the Orochiri-Worukwo (Waterlines junction) Flyover.
He said at the commissioning performed by the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, in Port Harcourt: “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.”
Wike pointed to how difficult it will be for anyone to upset the voting pattern of Rivers State and support for the Peoples Democratic Party.
He said: “My guest from Lagos State, let nobody tell you story that anybody will come here to win as governor of Rivers State.
“It will not happen.”
