Governor Nyesom Wike promises to adhere to EFCC's invitation and refrain from fleeing.


Governor Nyesom Wike has stated that he won't flee Nigeria because he is afraid of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, after his tenure expires on May 29.

Wike stated that if invited, he will gladly honor the EFCC at the end of his tenure on May 29.

The governor was reacting to EFCC Chairman Abdulrasheed Bawa's recent revelations that the agency will arrest corrupt governors whose terms expire on May 29.

Wike, on the other hand, said he is unconcerned about the threat to arrest governors at the end of their tenure on May 29.

On Monday, the governor spoke on Channels Television's breakfast show, SUNRISE.

Wike vowed not to flee Nigeria days before the inauguration of his successor, as other previous governors had done.

"I'm not going to flee because of the EFCC." Why should they bother inviting me? I will accept their invitation if they extend it to me. "I will not flee” he said.
