Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has declared that he and his G5 allies will never play God to determine who becomes the next president of Nigeria.

The governor said this in reaction to the statement, which said the next president is for Nigeria, not the G5 governors.

Wike, who spoke at the banner on Ogbo-Ihugbodo Road in the state’s Ahoada-East local government area, said those behind the statement should have known that even if God gives power, he shouldn’t give it to the wicked.

“Don’t be a traitor in life because you want power. God will never give power to the wicked. Our hands are clean, we have done nothing wrong.

“All we are saying is that we do things in a way that we all have a sense of belonging, that we all believe that we are together,” he said.

The governor explained that the members of the G5 believe in the omnipotence of God and always align their various issues to it, so they are getting stronger day by day.

Governor Wike also noted that the person said there will be a split among the G5, an expectation he said had long been dashed since May/June 2022.

“It has never worked and it will never work in Jesus name. By sitting down to say that there will be division, I return that prayer to you, ”he added.

Commenting on the project, Governor Wike said the Ogbo-Ihugbodo highway is one of many projects his administration has continued to deliver to restore the town of Ahoada and surrounding communities to what it used to be when it was a divisional headquarters.

The Governor stressed that it is already established that he is creating an unbeatable record as an administration in NigBy Sunday Isuwa, Abuja

The All Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has urged Nigerians to decide for a better future for the country as we enter the new year, which is also an election year.

NNPP said that as Nigeria approaches the threshold of 2023, they are offered a fresh start to enthrone genuine democracy and build a new Nigeria that everyone wants and deserves on the platform of NNPP.

A statement by the party’s national publicity secretary, Dr. Agbo Major, said electing good leaders this year will put an end to the long national nightmare and consistent policies that crippled the economy and made Nigeria the laughingstock of the community of nations.

“The tasks ahead are enormous and so are the opportunities to build a strong, virile, united, progressive, prosperous, equitable and just democratic society. Nation building is a collective responsibility of citizens and calls for prayer, unity, tolerance and a shared vision.

“The new year and the upcoming general elections will provide Nigerians with a unique opportunity to elect patriotic, courageous, honest, versatile and God-fearing leaders who will change the fate of the nation and steer the ship of state off its dangerous course.

“General elections are crucial for the survival of democracy in Nigeria. It requires the active participation of citizens in the electoral process. NNPP urges eligible Nigerians to pick up their permanent voter cards, come out en masse and vote for their candidates in all elections, ensure their votes are counted and counted in the overall result,” he said.
