I don’t trust politicians – Governor Wike

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, has said, despite being a politician, he still finds it hard to trust other politicians.

The governor made these remarks during the solidarity visit by Anglican Bishops of the Province of the Niger Delta, said it was difficult to trust any politician “totally” because circumstances always determined their positions on issues.

He said:

“I am not carried away by all the congratulatory and goodwill messages. The Bishop of Ikwerre knows one man called Mpi; Mpi said when you are moving and you hear footsteps, watch whether the footsteps are with you or they are stepping back.

“So, as a politician, one group of people you must watch very carefully are the politicians. They are easily swayed. Some believe; when they believe, they believe.

“Something can entice politicians and they can change. If you watch what happened at the National Assembly, you can see that this is the attitude of politicians.

“You see the party has a position; before you know it, they are selling out themselves for one plate of porridge. This one has a case and he wants them to withdraw the case.”

The governor observed that some persons were lacking principles and they simply used politics as a cover-up for their unprincipled acts.

“These things we know and we are guided by it. I will never let my guard down to say everybody is with me. The only person I can be comfortable with at all times is God. If it is a human being, no.

“It is difficult for me to give 100 percent trust that a man will continue to be like this or like that. The only person that cannot change is God.

“For human beings, they can always change. That is why they are human beings. You can trust a human being, but be careful to open your eyes because anything can happen,” he said.

Wike pointed out that in protecting the interest of Rivers State, he would never bow to anybody.

According to him:

“I will not go to bow to anybody; I will defend the interest of our state. As far as God lives, this state will remain a Christian State.”
