The governor disclosed this when the Gbajabiamila/Wase campaign team, made up of 110 lawmakers, paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House in Port Harcourt.
Recall that Gbajabiamila’s South East/South South campaign tour for the Speaker of the House of Representatives, began yesterday ahead of the inauguration of the 9th Assembly.
”I don’t support you based on party lines; I support you based on capacity.
“When you get there, we must work as a people; party is just a vehicle to convey you to your political destination. “Party line is the major reason why Nigeria has not made any progress. It was the reason why our Electoral Act was not assented to,” Wike said
He further urged Gbajabiamila to put Nigeria first when he emerges as the speaker of the 9th House on June 10.
