After departing office on May 29, Wike stated he has no fear of being under investigation by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Speaking on Wednesday at the inauguration of the Rumuigbo internal road network in the Obio-Akpor LGA of the state.
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 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 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.
