Tinubu won’t regret nominating me as minister – Wike assures 

    Published By:

    The immediate past governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has been confirmed as minister on Monday afternoon.

    Wike, who is the only Peoples Democratic Party, chieftain in the ministerial list, assured that President Bola Tinubu won’t regret nominating him to serve as a minister.

    The ex-governor made the promise during the screening of ministerial nominees before the Senate in Abuja.

    Bragging about his achievements in Rivers State, he said: “As governor, it’s on record in this country, everybody will attest to it that I changed the landscape of Port Harcourt. It’s on record that in four years, I completed 12 flyovers. You will testify to it Mr President that you have come to commission projects in Rivers State.

    What is important is what passion you have. Do you love your people? I can say it as a governor in my four years in the first term, I’ve never left my state and slept outside my state. I made sure that I was in my state to take on the challenges. And that is why when I was leaving, I was leaving like a hero.

    These things can be achieved if you are committed; if you have passion for the job.

    “There are so many people who want to be ministers for the sake that ‘I was a governor’; for the sake that ‘I was a minister’.

    “But there are those who say, ‘Look, what do I have to offer? Am I committed to the job? And I thank Mr President for not limiting me. I believe how hungry Mr President is for solving the problems of Nigeria, we have no choice but to give him that required support. I assure you if I’m confirmed in whatever capacity, Mr President will not regret nominating me.”
