“My wife and family, including my younger brothers and sisters, no one had access to government when I was governor.

“Even as minister, nobody will have such because it is not a family business. It is government business.

“But the problem with Nyesom Wike, and I want you to state this if he doesn’t shut up his mouth and do his work I will bring his wife to the focus. You see I’ve been very matured not to talk about his wife.

“But if Wike does not close his mouth and talk about my wife anymore, I will bring out his wife. My wife will never do such, we don’t do family business.

“I care about transparency. My wife is a trader. She buys and sells and Wike knows that.”

“The man who says he has about $50 million in Lagos and could not prove it is the same man you believe.

“The man who said I didn’t pay salaries until I left office and now he is saying no, it is pensioners that I didn’t pay. Do you believe such a man?

“Do you think such a man is well? You believe Nyesom Wike is well?

“Again, how do you know how the court came to its decision? We were not even informed.

“There is a panel of justices in Rivers state, which is the Court of Appeal.

“But by the time we knew it, they took away that matter from them and gave it to a panel that came from Adamawa.” had reported that the governor of Rivers state Nyesom Wike accused his predecessor Rotimi Amaechi of stealing the state blind.
