Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike says he would not leave any debt for his successor when he leaves office in 2023.
He made the promise on Wednesday during the commissioning of the Rivers State University Teaching Hospital (RSUTH) Renal Centre and House Officers Quarters.
On why he won’t leave any debt, the Governor explained that he wants whoever would take over from him to start on a fresh note.
He said: “I have told anybody who cares I will not leave a debt, one naira debt for my successor. I will not. I want him to start on a clean note,” Wike said while addressing respective stakeholders.
“Let him not say I came and met a debt of 50 billion naira, of course, I will not do that.”
I Am A Free Man
Speaking further, Wike submitted that he won’t be afraid of moving among the people when his tenure expires because his legacy would speak for him.
“It is not about how much money you have amassed, it is what legacy you have put on ground, that once you leave can you turn left or right and say I am happy, I am justified, I have not disappointed my people.”
“I made promises and those promises have been fulfilled ”
“I can put my two hands in my pocket and walk confidently on the road and say I thank God Almighty for the opportunity,” he said.
