The immediate past Governor of Rivers, Nyesom Wike, has opened up on whether he would accept appointment if offered to him by President Bola Tinubu.

On Tuesday Wike disclosed this while fielding questions during a media chat with journalists in Port Harcourt.

The programme was monitored by Pressmen.

Wike said circumstances will tell you and that he is not lobbying for an appointment.

Recall that the former Rivers Governor had been making romance with the Tinubu’s All Progressives Congress, APC, prior to the February 25 presidential election, and even after the inauguration of Tinubu’s government.

Wike belongs to the opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, but worked against the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Speaking with BBC Pidgin over the weekend, Wike said he would consult his wife and friends if Tinubu offered him an appointment.

Meanwhile, the former governor stated that he isn’t begging for appointment but would consider the capacity he is to serve, if Tinubu calls him.

“You can’t ask me that kind of question.
First of all, I am not lobbying for an appointment, for Christ sake. And I can’t only be important because you have given me an appointment. I mean, you should look at it very well.

“Two, Mr President has not called me. With due respect, if Mr President calls you and say, I want you to serve. May be I will ask, in what capacity do you want me to serve. And he says it, I say okay, thank you Sir.

“Look I have a political team, I have a family, I won’t just sit down without talking to anybody and say oh Yes. Look, look, I am not begging for appointment.

“We are not being objective. I have to explain to you how it’s done, you don’t just say will you take or not. What kind of question is that? At my level, you don’t ask whether I will take or I won’t take. No, circumstances will tell you. You see you never can tell,” he said.
