The immediate past governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has said he would make consultations with his wife and friends to determine whether or not to take up any appointment offer from President Bola Tinubu.
Wike, in an interview with BBC Pidgin, insisted that his wife and friends are the set of people he would first reach out to.
The Peoples Democratic Party chieftain emphasized that the President had not discussed any such matter with him, but he affirmed that he is willing to serve the country despite his prominent position.
Nonetheless, Wike expressed his desire to take a break for the time being, following his eight-year tenure as a governor.
In his own words, “I intend to rest; I have dedicated eight years to my work, so now I want to take a break.”
I have not been notified by Tinubu regarding any potential appointment. While I believe that no one is too important to serve their country, I have not been approached by him regarding an appointment.
“If he were to approach me, my initial step would be to seek the opinions of my wife and friends before making a decision.”
“I will also evaluate my own readiness. I will never engage in something for which I am unprepared,” he commented.
Wike explicitly dismissed any intentions of defecting to the All Progressives Congress, even after his meeting with President Bola Tinubu on Friday.
He clarified that his visit to the president was solely to offer him support, four days after his inauguration.
