Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has hit out at his Ebonyi State counterpart, Dave Umahi, who said God will give Nigeria a president “who has a good heart like President Muhammadu Buhari” in 2023.
Recall that governor Umahi had made the remarks while addressing the State House correspondents on Monday, after meeting with president Muhammad Buhari at Aso Villa in Abuja.
While reacting, Nyesom Wike, Umahi’s remark, said that his colleague had lied.
He further stated that even Buhari himself knows that God won’t allow Nigerians witness such president again comes 2023.
This was reference was made by the governor during a stakeholders’ meeting in Port Harcourt, the state capital, while addressing business owners.
His words read: “That was how a governor was saying that he prays that Nigeria gets another President like Buhari.
“I said what has gone wrong with him? You mean there shouldn’t be (a) psychiatric check on the governor? Sycophancy.
“And you know that the President knows that you are telling lies to him. He (Buhari) knows.
“It is unfortunate. May God help us.”
