The Rivers governor made this statement while commissioning a project in the state on Friday. He urged residents of Oyo state to support all candidates running for office in the People’s Democratic Party next week Saturday.
According to Wike, those who fight for change may not reap the rewards, but history is going to treat him and others well. He further praised his Oyo state counterpart, Seyi Makinde, for making sure that power switched to the South.
He argued that since it doesn’t need to be recorded anywhere, power should be distributed evenly between the North and the South.
“I have told people that those who fight for change, who fight for revolution may not be directed beneficiaries of that fight but today, history has it that all of us now are aware that when power finishes from the south, it will go to the north; when it finishes from the north, it will come to the south,” he said.
He gave the people of Oyo his word that Makinde will complete more projects during his second term and praised the governor for being a loyal friend and brother.
He also suggested that Oyo residents begin utilizing the old naira notes in accordance with the Supreme Court’s decision.
The Federal Government’s plan to redesign the naira was recently overturned by the Supreme Court, which also mandated that the old naira note remain in circulation until December 31, 2023.
