God will never give power to the wicked — Wike replies Okowa

Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, said on Saturday that God will not give power to the “wicked” or those who will sell off Nigeria in a fraction of a second.

He made this statement when he flagged off the construction of Ogbo-Ihugbogbo Road in the Ahoada East Local Government Area of the state.

The governor’s comment followed recent statements by Delta State governor, Ifeanyi Okowa.

Okowa, who is the running mate to the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, had a rally in Delta on Friday, said God will give power to the party at the poll next year and nobody including the G5 can change that.

The G5 or the Integrity Group are five dissatisfied PDP governors led by Wike. Other members of the group are Governors Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), and Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia).

The G5 has been at loggerheads with Atiku after the party’s presidential primary in May and has asked for the resignation of PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu for a southern replacement as a precondition to support Atiku’s decade-long ambition.

Wike, in his reaction to Okowa’s comments, said the G5 has the backing of God and that explains why the group continues to wax stronger.

He said: “Some people said it is only God that will decide who will be president and not G5…We are where we are because of God, nobody can even breathe air, if not God, not to talk about holding positions.

“So, nobody can tell us that it is only God; we know that it is only God that gives power but our prayer is to our God: don’t allow those who will sell off Nigeria in one second to be in power. Our prayer is: God, don’t allow anybody that You’ll have an agreement with and the next two minutes the person will change.

“Our prayer is: God, don’t allow those who will betray their brother when they have agreed with their brother to do something. God, may You never allow such persons and that is why God is still making G5 to be stronger.”
