Again, Wike leaves for Europe after media chat

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has again, travelled to Europe, though his exact destination is yet unknown.


Our correspondent, however, learnt that the governor may have headed to the United Kingdom, London to be precise.


Of late, London has become the Governor’s destination of choice outside the shores of Nigeria.


His other choice, more often than not is Spain, where the state government has a partnership with top Champion’s League winner, the Real Madrid Football Club.


The state government had established a Real Madrid Academy in Port Harcourt which is currently recruiting intakes.


Recall that Wike had addressed a televised media chat earlier on Friday in Government House, Port Harcourt, where he opened what can be termed a can of worms.


It was gathered that the Governor of the crude oil and gas-rich state jetted out in a chattered flight from the Port Harcourt International Airport at about midnight on Friday.


A top government official who pleaded anonymity confirmed the governor’s departure to our correspondent on Saturday morning.


“Yes, he (Wike) travelled last night. But I don’t know his exact destination,” he said.


The governor, during the fever-pitched media chat on Friday had made several revelations.


One of such was that the presidential standard bearer of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, had offered him a Senatorial ticket during their meeting in London last month.
