Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has said he is open to probing by anti-graft agencies after his term as the Chief Executive of the state.
Wike also said he hopes to hand over to a successor who will outperform him when he leaves office come 2023.
The Governor said these at the commissioning of the dualised Rumuola Flyover in the Obio-Akpor Local government area of the state.
He said he is neither scared nor apprehensive about what the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) will do to him.
“There is always a price to pay to achieve any great feat in life, and I know they will come for me,” he said.
Governor Wike went ahead to warn people involved in the sabotage of maintenance holes and other road appendages, saying that the State Government would henceforth find and deal squarely with them.
Former Ondo State Governor Dr Olusegun Mimiko, who commissioned the project as the Special Guest of the Rivers State Government, applauded Governor Wike’s commitment to the welfare of his people.
He noted that his commitment is an encouragement not only to Rivers people or the Peoples Democratic Party but to Nigerians.
He observed that Governor Wike does not see government as an end but as a means to improve the lives of Rivers people. He said, “even those who feel unsettled by your words and actions can’t deny the fact that you plan and deliver projects.
“Good projects would be sustainable when we have a good and credible electoral system.”
