Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has urged Governor Nyesom Wike to take the war back to his opponents.
The Speaker who was in Port Harcourt to commission the Rivers State House of Assembly Quarters built by the Wike administration said that the Governor has proved that he respects the relationship between the executive and legislative arms.
Gbajabiamila noted that he and the governor had set out to prove that regardless of the existence of different political platforms, public functionaries could still act together in the advancement of policy.
Turning to the ongoing fight between Wike and those who are going against him, the Speaker declared, “choke them, choke them until you get where you are going.”
He said it was ironical that those who teamed up to fight him when he was aspiring to be speaker were the sames who were determined to fight him (Wike).
Gbajabiamila however noted that permanent interests is what matters in politics not friends or foes.
He admonished Rivers lawmakers for whom a conducive environment is being created to rise up to the occasion and serve their constituents.
Earlier, Governor Nyesom Wike said he invited the Speaker to commission the project so he could see what the funds he helped the State to secure is used for.
He recalled that the Speaker had offered to assist the State at a time of great need, when attempts were made to block funds due to Rivers people, saying he was not one to forget those who have one way or the other being of help to him.
Wike hoped the Speaker would find time to tour other project sites before leaving for Abuja and thanked him for coming.
The Rivers Governor urged those who were busy spreading fake news to stay away from him.
He said the time had come for Atiku to ask those hanging around him to go back to their states and campaign and commission projects.
Governor Wike said he has decided to focus on his primary assignment as Governor of Rivers State and promised to build a road that would take Prince Uche Secondus home so he would be in a position to campaign for Atiku on his place.
But he said that he would have the opportunity to reply his critics within the PDP, saying he is yet to engage in campaigns.
“I will choke them”, Governor Wike declared at the occasion, warning Atiku and his associates to leave him alone.
“I don’t even know the lawyer” that his traducers are claiming is representing him in court, Wike explained.
He revealed he had a discussion with the National Legal Adviser of the party over the fictitious claim, stressing that if he had wanted to approach the court, he would have done so two weeks after the National Convention took place.
