Amid the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which has seen Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State refuse to throw his weight behind Atiku Abubakar, the governor on Tuesday said that anybody who says the state is inconsequential will suffer repercussions for ignoring it.
NEWSBREAK reports that Wike said this while speaking in Bonny Town during the Local Government Campaign Flag-off Rally that was organised by the Rivers State PDP Campaign Council.
The governor enjoined all residents of the state to reject intimidation and propaganda.
“Any person who says Rivers State is not important, we will pepper him. Anybody who says he doesn’t regard Rivers State, we would not regard such person.
“There’s nothing like propaganda, nothing like intimidation because nobody can intimidate us. We are very, very solid. We are very strong.
“No State can point at us to determine what will happen here. Nobody can do such. So, be bold to say, I’m from Rivers State, I live in Rivers and I am happy with Rivers.
“What is important is our State which we have collected,” Wike said.
