Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said that he won’t support President Muhammadu Buhari’s war against corruption.

Wike further accused Buhari of being one-sided in the anti-graft war, according to The Cable.

The governor made the comments on Sunday, February 7, 2016, while celebrating his recent electoral victory at the Supreme Court.

“We will not support the fight against corruption. People took our money from the state, and we wrote to the police asking them to go and make a statement; nothing has come out of it,” he said.

“We won’t take anybody to the EFCC because I know what will happen. We know how to fight our own way.  We won’t support that war against corruption that they are doing," he added.

Wike’s victory in the April 11, 2015 elections was upheld by the Supreme Court on January 27.
