Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has slammed his Ebonyi State counterpart, Dave Umahi, for saying in 2023 that God will provide Nigeria a president “with a decent heart like President Muhammadu Buhari.”
After meeting President Buhari at Aso Villa in Abuja on Monday, Umahi made the remarks to State House media.
Wike, on the other hand, alleged that his colleague had lied in a veiled reference to Umahi.
Even Buhari, according to Wike, understands that the country would not have another president like him in 2023.
While speaking to business owners during a stakeholders gathering in Port Harcourt, the state capital, the governor mentioned this.
“That was how a governor was stating that he prays for another President like Buhari,” Wike stated.
“I asked, ‘What’s wrong with him?’ Do you imply the governor shouldn’t be subjected to a mental examination? Sycophancy.
“And you’re well aware that the President is aware that you’re lying to him. He (Buhari) is aware of the situation.
“It is regrettable. “May God be with us.”
