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

According to the news published by Punch Newspaper, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has encouraged the incoming president to use federal funds to help states who are unable to fund their projects.

To maintain public harmony with the current administration, Governor Wike believes that a partnership between the federal government and the state in which they give support during project development is essential. Wike made the comments at the flyover's opening at Rumuokwuta/Rumuola.

"The federal government will come in to assist if we are unable to fund a project. We wish to collaborate with an effective federal government. Other states will join in if the president-elect shows such support for Rivers State once he assumes office.

"I can assure the president-elect that we don't want people to grow unhappy with the federal government. I am not asking for anything to which we are not legally entitled, and it is not a laughing matter.

"The federal government should congratulate you and say that you are truly a son of the nation; you have lifted our reputation. People no longer mistreat us thanks to you. If we hadn't come and said, "Let's cover you so that people won't abuse you," people here would have been abusing the federal government and wouldn't have supported you, therefore I believe you should repay us. He spoke.

In the meantime, the governor's claim that Rivers residents would not have supported Tinubu if they had not been provided with coverage sheds some light on what happened in the state during the election.
