Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said he would be leaving office at the end of his tenure as a fulfilled man.
Wike said he would be leaving the office with his shoulders high, and not leaving office to run away from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
He stated this on Wednesday during the commissioning of Rumuigbo Internal Road Network in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state.
The governor stated that he has nothing to fear if the anti-graft agency comes to probe his administration, adding that he has served the people of the state diligently and faithfully.
Wike directed his successor and Rivers State Governor-Elect, Siminlalayi Fubara to show EFCC his many accomplished projects in Rivers if the anti-corruption commission comes for investigation.
He said, “I am happy I am leaving office fulfilled. I’m leaving the office with my shoulders high. I am leaving the office very well. I’m not leaving office to run away so that EFCC would not come.
I’m leaving office and I will stay here; I am not going anywhere. When the EFCC come, go and show them the projects.”
Wike said he was happy that everything he asked for during the 2023 general elections was realized. He also thanked God that he is leaving behind a great legacy to his successor.
