I’ve capacity to influence votes, says Wike
Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike has boasted that with his performance in office, he has the capacity to influence votes in the State.
The Governor, while replying some politicians, who misconstrued his earlier statement that he was in charge of the State, wondered why “misguided elements” were misrepresenting his remarks.
He said: “Because some people went to school late, they don’t understand when somebody says I am in charge of this State. I never said I am in charge of votes in this State.
“But I know I can talk to my people and my people will listen to me. Some people say, I have only one vote, I agree. I can’t vote two times. I will only vote once. But because of the services I have rendered to the people of this State, the state will listen to me.”
Wike spoke on Tuesday during the inauguration of the dualised Ogbunuabali -Eastern Bypass Road that was performed by the former Sokoto Governor Senator Aliyu Wamakko on Tuesday.
