Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, on Monday said he will not be worried if his imminent successor, Siminialayi Fubara, turns against him as he is there to serve the state and not him (Wike).

Speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme, monitored by POLITICS NIGERIA, Wike said he won’t hold any grudge against the Rivers governor-elect if he discards his counsels.

“He is not there to serve me. We are there to serve the people. The problem leaders have is that you supported someone to be in office; what you did, was it to help him succeed or fail?

“You want him to be coming to your house to be taking orders? Once you have left office, you give yourself that respect and say ‘I have done my own’. If he wants my advice, it is okay; if he doesn’t, it is okay. But for me to begin from day to day, telling him you must do this, you must do that, that is not acceptable. That is why people fail,” Wike said.
