The governor of Rivers State Nysom Wike said he does not trust politicians because they can sway any time.
While addressing a delegation of Anglican bishops who visited him the government house, Wike said: “politicians are a group of people you must watch very carefully.”
He said, unlike many of his colleagues, he doesn’t allow congratulatory messages to make him lose guard.
“I am not carried away by all the congratulatory and goodwill messages,” he said.
“So, as a politician, one group of people you must watch very carefully are the politicians. They are easily swayed. Some believe; when they believe, they believe.”
Wike was referring to the incident that recently happened at the National Assembly where members of his political party, the Peoples Democratic Party swayed at the last minute to support Ahmed Lawan against Ali Ndume to emerge the Senate President.
“Something can entice politicians and they can change. If you watch what happened at the national assembly, you can see that this is the attitude of politicians.
“You see the party has a position; before you know it, they are selling out themselves for one plate of porridge. This one has a case and he wants them to withdraw the case.
“It is difficult for me to give 100 percent trust that a man will continue to be like this or like that. The only person that cannot change is God.
“For human beings, they can always change. That is why they are human beings. You can trust a human being, but be careful to open your eyes because anything can happen.”
