Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has advised Governor Akinwunmi Ambode resist/fight back his Godfather, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Speaking in Port Harcourt, yesterday, Wike said: “If it is correct that the godfather is against Ambode, I will tell him (Ambode) to resist it. I will tell him to promote the interest of his state. Godfatherism is not good. It negates development. No more godfather politics in Rivers State. We are not in Lagos State. Rivers State will not accept godfatherism. My concern is to do well for Rivers State.
“For the over three years that we have managed Rivers State, nobody of good conscience will say that we have not done well. We are not threatened because, in Rivers State, PDP is a dominant party,” he said.
He also declared that he will not be vying for the position of vice president, as being speculated in certain quarters.
