The governor spoke at the inauguration of the Etche Campus of the Rivers State University in Abara community of Etche Local Government Area on Tuesday.

According to him, Rivers has given the PDP the highest votes since 1999, but no federal project has been executed in the state to compliment the electoral support.

Wike also revealed that some of his close associates have expressed concerns over his safety, but he has told them that anyone or group planning to eliminate him will die first because his life was in God’s hands.

He said, “At the appropriate time, we will make a decision on what to do. This is because since 1999 — I want Rivers people to reflect on this, ponder over it, and bring the highest votes to the PDP.

“I challenge any state to say they brought more votes for the PDP. I challenge any state to say, in terms of support, for the PDP.

“Which state has given more support than Rivers state? Is there anyone? Since 1999, show me one federal project in Rivers state. Is there anyone? So, if you want our votes, then tell me what you will give Rivers people. Our votes are not for dash anymore.”

Governor Wike also said during the 2019 elections, he was asked to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid, but he refused.

“This (federal) government fought us, but we survived it. Most of them who are talking now, if this federal government had descended on them, most of them would have crumbled.

“They were going to negotiate with Buhari in 2019; that was how Buhari won election. They came to me, I said no negotiation; PDP must win.

“If you have God, what are you afraid of? They have chased us, they’ve fought us but today we are standing strong,” Wike added.

The governor also clarified his comments on why he said he was willing to deal with those who want to challenge his electoral capacity.
