Governor Wike Full Speech : Says Not Bothered By Threats Of Strike Action By PENGASSAN Vows To Prosecute Exxon-Mobil Oil Workers Who Allegedly Disobeyed Covid19 Order


Governor Wike Full Speech Bit by Bit:

I have come and will go one day but while I remain, I will ensure the lives of the People of Rivers State is Protected. I am a “Boy” to the people of Rivers State and not anyone outside the State.

– You can fly, I cannot stop you from doing so but when you land, do not enter my territory. The roads were constructed by Rivers State Government.

– You don’t talk law on Pages of Newspaper, you talk law in the Court and we’re prepared. A Certain minister sat somewhere issuing order to me, let him come and release the people in our custody that violated the law.

– I am not one of those Governors who fly to Abuja every now and then to look for favours. COVID-19 has come, let everyone stay in his state and spend money.

– Any Company operating in Rivers State that does not assist the State in the fight against COVID-19 will hear from Rivers State. I don’t go to them to beg for anything, I have not collected anything from them and so, I can stand firm and make a decision.

– We are not those State where a Governor receives 28million naira and snap pictures with it. In Rivers State, we don’t collect Widow’s Mite. You make money here, it is our entitlement. Look for the COVID-19 task force account and make your donations there. There are poor people who still have Pride and Integrity.

– I won you in 2015, I won in 2019, how many times do you want me to win you?

– The only opposition party in Rivers State is SDP who won a seat in the House of Assembly. How can someone from a party who cannot produce a single Candidate just within the party to stand for an election come out to talk about how to run a State? Go and put your house in order.


– All those politicians politicizing Covid-19 saying that they were tested positive and now negative, they should also make public their HIV status

– Stalls have been converted to markets; we would go after them. For the markets defying us, we would close down the market forever

– If you don’t like me, should I kill myself?
That will even make me to like myself the more

– (to press men) Most of you don’t like us, you eat our food but we know the interest you represent. Write your reports well, if you don’t write well, Corona Virus will catch you.

The ban on public gathering has helped to curb the spread of the virus.

He defends police over collecting bribes at the borders saying the police cannot be every where

He reiterated his directive of no aircraft should fly.  And that he saw a written letter by PENGASSAN threatened him with strike but not afraid of any strike and that he will go to court.

He said food committee have distributed foods to five LGAs and pledge to incorporate more bodies like the NUJ in the sharing methods

He also laments over shops and stores converted to markets, threatens to shut down some areas where trading and markets are on-going today especially PHALGA and IKOKWU forever until he leaves office and will convert the place to Hospital and build school for public use
