Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has said that he intends to leave behind a debt-free economy for his successor to build on.
This statement was made by Wike on Wednesday during the commissioning of the renal center and house officers’ quarters at the Rivers State University Teaching Hospital (RSUTH).
“I have told anybody who cares I will not leave a debt, one naira debt for my successor. I will not. I want him to start on a clean note,” Wike said while addressing respective stakeholders.
“Let him not say I came and met a debt of 50 billion naira, of course, I will not do that.”
The governor also made it clear that he was confident in the numerous accomplishments he has made around the state and for which his critics have expressed praise.
Wike who is at loggerheads with the national leadership of his Party, Peoples Democratic Party, had on Tuesday urged citizens of the state to vote for the party at the state level.
He, however, announced that he will soon reveal the candidate he will be supporting for the presidency seat.
