“Godfatherism Is Not Good, It Negates Development” – Wike Tells Ambode What To Do About ‘Godfatherism’
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has today admonished his Lagos State counterpart, Akinwunmi Ambode to resist the practice of “godfatherism” in his state.
Wike while reacting to the alleged rift between Ambode and a National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu said Ambode should negate godfatherism and promote the interest of his state.
“If it is correct that the godfather is against Ambode, I will tell him (Ambode) to resist it.
“I will tell him to promote the interest of his state. Godfatherism is not good. It negates development.”
Wike also declared that godfatherism has no place in Rivers State.
“No more godfather politics in Rivers State. We are not in Lagos State. Rivers State will not accept godfatherism. My concern is to do well for Rivers State.
“For the over three years that we have managed Rivers State, nobody of good conscience will say that we have not done well. We are not threatened because in Rivers State, PDP is a dominant party”, he said.
