I’m Not Afraid Of EFCC Probe After Leaving Office – Wike
The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, says he is leaving office as a “fulfilled” public servant.
He said he won’t be leaving office on May 29, 2023, to “run away” from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Wike made this assertion while speaking on Wednesday at the inauguration of the Rumuigbo internal road network in the Obio-Akpor LGA of the state.
The governor said he is not afraid of being investigated by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after leaving office on May 29.
Wike said he won’t run away from the state to evade any probe by the anti-graft agency, adding that his administration has done several projects to justify how public funds were spent.
“I’m happy that I am leaving office fulfilled. I’m leaving the office with my shoulders high. I am leaving office very well,” Wike said.
“I’m not leaving office to run away so that EFCC would not come (to probe me). I’m leaving the office and I will stay here (Rivers). I am not going anywhere.”
Wike asked Siminialayi Fubara, the governor-elect, to show EFCC the projects completed by his administration if the commission visits the state.
Wike’s comment comes days after Abdulrasheed Bawa, chairman of the EFCC, reportedly said the commission will go after some outgoing governors and other public officials after May 29.
