The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has stated that he doesn’t trust any human being, especially Nigerian politicians because they are easily swayed by circumstances.
Wike stated this when the Anglican Bishops of the Province of the Niger Delta, paid him a solidarity visit at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Friday, June 14, 2019.
According to the governor, it’s too difficult to trust any politician because circumstances determine their positions on issues, he has chosen to remain focused in his defence of the interest of the state. He said:
“So as a politician, one group you must watch very carefully is the politicians. They are easily swayed. Some believe and they are sincere.
“Something can entice politicians and they can change. If you watch what happened at the National Assembly, you can see that this is the attitude of politicians.
“You see the party has a position, before you know it, they are selling out themselves for one plate of porridge. This one has a case and he wants them to withdraw the case.”
The governor said that some persons don’t have principles and they simply use politics as a cover up for their unprincipled acts. He added:
“These things we know and we are guided about them. I will never let my guard down to say everybody is with me. The only person I can be comfortable with at all times is God. If it is a human being, No!
“I don’t trust any human being. It is difficult for me to give 100 per cent trust that a man will continue to be like this or like that. The only person that cannot change is God. For human beings, they can always change.
“That is why they are human beings. You can trust a human being, but be careful to open your eyes, because anything can happen.”
Wike stated that in protecting the interest of Rivers State, he would never bow to anybody. The governor said:
“I will not go to bow to anybody. I will defend the interest of our state. As far as God lives, this state will remain a Christian State.
“As a human being, you must have challenges. When those challenges come, with your belief in God, they will be surmounted,” he declared.
