Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike has told the the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu that he has no right to tell him to leave Edo state.
Speaking on Channels television on Friday after the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), raised alarm that Security operatives laid siege on the hotel where he lodged in Benin, Wike who is also the Chairman of the PDP National Campaign Council for Edo Governorship Election, said he is not leaving state because he in on party duties.
He said, “I am not the only Governor here, the Governor of Imo State is here, Ganduje is here, the deputy Senate President is here. So, why should you tell me to leave? I said I will not leave.
“As the chairman of Campaign Council, we have to monitor what is going on and tomorrow, we go out and monitor what is going on. He cannot tell me that I must leave Edo State. It has not happened in this country. I don’t know where we are heading to. For IG to call a governor, to tell a Governor you must leave Edo State. It is the highest level of impunity.
“I am not going to vote, but we hold it as a duty as a party tell us monitor what is going on. I am here to do my assignment, I’m not here on campaign, the people must have made their minds on who they are going to vote for and who they will not vote for.
“But at the end of the day as the chairman of the Campaign Council, I should be able to write a report, say what I witnessed, and say what happened. Not for the IG to call me, a governor, that you must leave the state. I have not seen that kind of thing in my life.”
