He said in a video shared on his Twitter page:-
“I mentioned to them then that what they were doing wasn’t right. Presently they have become a hobos Forum in any event, when there are established infractions.
“You can see that APC governors state that they are dynamic. You can perceive how dynamic they are the point at which they stay silent when an individual sitting representative is excluded from challenging decisions.”

“Representative Wike is an old individual from the NGF and a solid one at that. He was unable to have alluded to the NGF as a Beggars Forum. Accuse the creator of the discharge, Mr Nsirim the Information Commissioner in Rivers State who couldnt recognize the NGF and the Progressive Governors Forum which is the political foundation of APC Govs. The NGF has six center command zones and legislative issues isn’t one of them.
“The NGF is glad to express that Gov Wike is one of its solid individuals and has appointed his Deputy Gov to the Forum and she has never missed any gathering.”
