The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has on Friday, challenged the Federal Government, that he will not take orders from it, but only from the people of Rivers State.
Wike made this known in a Press Conference, in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
Wike said that the Federal Government is not happy that Port Harcourt has low numbers of coronavirus patients.
His words: “I do not take orders from Abuja, but from Rivers people. If they want to work with me they should come, I will not go and beg them.
“If they want war, we will fight, and I will make sure people of Rivers State are protected from coronavirus.
“They are not happy that Port Harcourt has low count, they want to wipe Rivers State out, but I will not allow it.
“They want to control everybody, they will not control me.”
