Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has challenged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to come after him after his tenure ends on May 29, insisting that he will not flee the anti-graft agency.
Wike, who was responding to the EFCC’s recent statement that it would move against corrupt governors when their immunities expired, said he has nothing to hide and would gladly honor the EFCC if invited.
On Monday morning, Wike appeared as a guest on Channels Television’s breakfast show, “Sunrise Daily,” and said he was not concerned by the EFCC Chairman’s threat to arrest corrupt governors whose terms expire on May 29.
“I’m not bothered by the threat by the EFCC Chairman to arrest governors after May 29,” he said.
“I have nothing to hide. I have nothing to fear. I am not going to run away because of EFCC. Why should they invite me? If they invite me, I will honour their invitation. I will not run away,” Wike said.
“I am not afraid of any investigation. I will not run away from Nigeria before the inauguration of my successor as some ex-governors had done in the past. If the EFCC invites me, I will honour their invitation,” Wike insisted.
