According to Reuben Abati, the governor of Rivers State is not in a position to teach him how to do his job because he has been into journalism since 1985. He went on to say that Nyesom Wike would spend more than a year studying how he does his work.
In his words;
“Governor Nyesom Wike is not in a position to teach me journalism. He does not have the intellect to teach me journalism. He will have to spend more than a year studying my body of work. I have been writing for the Nigerian press since 1985.”
