Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has vowed to never abandon former president, Goodluck Jonathan.

Wike made the promise on Thursday, May 18, during the commissioning of some projects in the state by Jonathan.

“We are not politicians that when anything is wrong, they sing different song. Rivers State is a different place. When we believe in you, we believe in you. We are different from other Niger Delta states. We can say it with all authority,” Wike said according to Punch.

“We cannot come out in the public and begin to castigate our own. Those of them who do that should have a rethink. For us, it doesn’t matter the blackmail against Jonathan, we will continue to back him.

“Those who think that they have promises from those who think they own Nigeria should be careful. They will use you and dump you at the appropriate time,” he added.
