Governor Wike 'Reveals' How He Helped Tinubu To Win Rivers State In Presidential Election

The incoming president has been given a unique opportunity to support states that are struggling to fund their own projects, according to Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State. Governor Wike emphasized the importance of a strong working relationship between the federal government and the states, whereby they can support each other throughout the duration of a project. This would not only maintain public confidence in the current administration, but also encourage other states to follow suit and join in.

In order to achieve this, Governor Wike suggested that the federal government should step in to provide financial assistance when a state is unable to meet the necessary funding requirements. He stressed that a trustworthy federal government would be the ideal partner to work with, and that Rivers State would appreciate the support of the president-elect once he assumes office.

Governor Wike also expressed his commitment to ensuring that the people of Rivers State do not harbor any ill feelings towards the federal government. He reminded the president-elect that the state is legally entitled to assistance when needed, and that his administration is not seeking anything beyond what is due to them.

The governor's comments shed light on the fact that the people of Rivers State may not have supported the federal government during the election if they had not been provided with coverage. He noted that the federal government had absolved them of any shame or mistreatment, and that they now feel more positively towards the government. In light of this, Governor Wike believes that the federal government should repay Rivers State for their support by providing the necessary assistance when required.
