Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said he will not run away from Nigeria because of the fear of an invitation from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after his tenure as governor expires by May 29th.
Wike said he would gladly honour the EFCC if invited at the end of his tenure on May 29.

The governor was reacting to recent revelations by the Chairman of EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, that the agency would arrest corrupt governors whose tenures end on May 29.
However, Wike said he’s not bothered by the threat to arrest governors at the end of their tenure on May 29.
The governor spoke on Channels Television programme, SUNRISE on Monday.
Wike vowed not to run away from Nigeria days before the inauguration of his successor as some ex-governors had done in the past.
