Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has lambasted Senator George Thompson Sekibo for aspiring to be Governor of Rivers State at almost 70 years of age, Njenje Media News reports.
Wike while addressing critical stake holders in River State couple of days ago expressed shock that Senator Sekibo would want to be Governor at a spent age.
“I am shocked that Sen. Sekibo even dreamed of running the affairs of River State when he has passed his prime. I don’t even know how to explain this to the good people of River State that a grandpa wants to be Governor” Wike cried.
Wike stated that the job description of a Governor and his terms of reference cannot be handled by an old man. Saying that it’d take the Equanimity of a young and vibrant soul to meet the inherent and tedious job of running the affairs of a state like Rivers.
“I, Nyesom Wike will support the aspiration of a young and energetic soul. I tell you for free, Governing a state like Rivers is not a tea party affair. Her demands is neck breaking. Therefore, an old man should enjoy his retirement in peace.” He stressed.
He further lambasted Hon Tele Ikuru, who went ahead to purchase his form without proper consultation and insisted that River State PDP family will work together to arrive on an acceptable candidate.
