In a recent interview with the media, Inko Tariah, the Former Special Adviser to the Rivers State Governor, revealed an interesting encounter between Governor Wike and Bola Tinubu during the latter's visit to Rivers state. According to Tariah, Governor Wike jokingly asked Tinubu to refund the money he had spent on building roads in the state.
To everyone's surprise, Tinubu simply replied that he owed the governor nothing. Tariah observed that Governor Wike's mood instantly changed, and he appeared crestfallen. However, instead of showing his disappointment, Wike used laughter to mask his emotions.
Tariah went on to explain that Wike had expected a positive response from Tinubu, and when he didn't receive it, his spirit was deflated. Despite this setback, Wike maintained his composure and tried to save face.
The encounter between Wike and Tinubu is a reminder that unexpected outcomes can catch us off guard, and that sometimes, we need to be prepared for disappointment. Nonetheless, it is essential to maintain our poise and sense of humor in the face of unexpected outcomes, as Governor Wike did during his encounter with Tinubu.
