The immediate past governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has said he would make consultations with his wife and friends before he decides on whether or not to take up any appointment offer from President Bola Tinubu.
Wike, who stated this in an interview with BBC Pidgin, insisted that his wife and friends are the set of people he would first reach out to.
The Peoples Democratic Party ,(PDP) chieftain, however, clarified that the President has not discussed such issue with him, stressing that he is not too big to serve the country.
The former governor further explained that he would want to rest for now, after serving Rivers State for eight years.
“I’m going to rest; I have worked for eight years, so I’m going to rest.
“Tinubu has not informed me about getting an appointment; I’m not too big to serve my country, but he has never told me that he would give me an appointment.
“If he asks me, the first thing I will do is ask my wife and friends what they think about it.
“I will also assess myself if I’m prepared. I will never do what I’m not ready for,” he said.
Wike had last Friday ruled out plans to defect to the All Progressives Congress(APC) after meeting with Tinubu.
He said he only visited the president to offer him support after his inauguration.
