The Minister nominee and former Governor of Rivers State Nyesom Wike has assured that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu would not regret nominating him as minister in whatever capacity, having attained enough experience while in government.
Penpushing reports that the controversial politician who worked against his party, Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) during the February 2023 Presidential election boasted to the screening committee that he left as a hero as Governor of his State
‘In whatever capacity, the president will not regret nominating me as a minister. It is on record that I changed the landscape of Port Harcourt. In four years, I constructed 12 flyovers; it is not magic. What is important is the commitment you have. I left as a hero; till 27 May, I was inaugurating projects. This can be achieved if you are dedicated’.
‘I thank the president for the nomination and I believe and I know that Mr President is hungry to solve the problems of Nigeria. We have no choice than to give him that support’, the minister nominee emphasised.
Penpushing further reports that at the screening, a Peoples Democratic Party senator from Rivers, Mpigi Barinada said more than five million people from the state supported Wike’s ministerial nomination and urged his colleagues to approve of him.
The Senate President Senator Godswill Akpabio, at the screening asked the former governor to take a bow and go, following a voice vote, just as it is recalled that out of the 16 ministerial nominees listed for Monday’s screening, two were not screened before the close of business for the day.
