The immediate past governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has made a revelation about step he would take if President Bola Ahmed Tinubu offers him an appointment.
The former Minister Wike noted that he would seek advice from wife and friends if Tinubu considers him for an appointment.
In an interview with BBC Pidgin, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, stalwart also maintained that he would like to take a break after serving as a governor for eight years.
According to Wike: “I’m going to rest; I have worked for eight years, so I’m going to rest.
“Tinubu has not informed me about getting an appointment; I’m not too big to serve my country, but he has never told me that he would give me an appointment.
“If he asks me, the first thing I will do is ask my wife and friends what they think about it.
“I will also assess myself if I’m prepared. I will never do what I’m not ready for.”
Wike alongside former Governor of Delta State, James Ibori and Governor of Oyo State , Seyi Makinde met with president Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the presidential villa on Friday.
After the meeting, Makinde, when asked about the outcome of their two-hour-long conversation said that the newly inaugurated president “has the support of the generality of the people” because he has a country to run.
He also noted that the issue of fuel subsidy removal topped the agenda of the meeting.
Responding to the question he is lobbying for ministerial appointment, the Governor nothing of such had happened.
Taking his turn to speak, Wike said their visit to the presidential villa is not an indication that they are planing to defect to the All Progressives Congress.
Ibori is a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and was in office when Tinubu was governor of Lagos state between 1999 and 2007.
