The Rivers State Governor, Barr. Nyesom Wike says he has what it takes to flog and crush his opponents, whom he described as “small boys.”
Wike made the statement while stressing that he would not leave his political opponents to God but deal with them himself.
The governor spoke while inaugurating the Okezuo Abia Flyover along the Aba -Enugu Expressway in Osisioma Ngwa Local Government Area and the rehabilitated Aba- Owerri Road in Aba South Local Government Area of Abia State on Monday.
He said: “God has given me what it takes to crush these people, for me to crush my enemies.
“No relationship can be bought with money. When I read some newspapers, they say some people are making attempts to break ranks. I said do you understand the modus operandi of what we are doing? If they understand the modus operandi, they will not waste their time.
“I have the capacity to flog these small boys.”
Wike has been aggrieved with leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, since the party’s presidential election.
The governor is aggrieved that the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar ignored him and picked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.
Atiku’s decision led to Wike calling for the resignation of PDP’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
