FLASHBACK: Video: I Will Never Be A Minister – Wike
Following the release of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s ministerial list with 28 nominees, an old video of the immediate past Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, saying he did not intend to become a minister after his tenure as governor is trending.
Wike was named in the list submitted to the Senate on Thursday.
In the trending video, Wike said, “Only one person can be a minister from a state; I will not be a minister. I will not. I am not a liability; Rivers State is an asset. “So if you don’t want to win an election, it’s your business. I’m not the one running the election. “He who wears the shoes knows where it pinches him”.
Naija News House recalls that Wike, three other ex-governors and 24 other nominees made Tinubu’s ministerial list read by the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, at the plenary.
