Former Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, on Monday appeared before the Senate for the confirmation hearing of his nomination as a minister by President Bola Tinubu.
Wike said he had never left his state as Rivers Governor, saying he is prepared and committed to work.
” I changed the landscape of Rivers State. It is on record in four years; I constructed 12 flyovers. What matters is, ”what passion do you have? Do you love your people? And I can say it, then as a governor, in my second term, in four years as a governor, I never left my state. I never slept outside my state,” Wike said.
The confirmation hearing followed a motion by the Senate Leader, Senator Dave Umahi.
Wike’s name was among the 28-miniterial noninees sent to the Senate last week by Tinubu for screening.
