Goodhead and other protesters also called on President Bola Tinubu to call the former Governor of Rivers State to order, vowing never to fold their hands and watch the FCT Minister pocket Rivers State.
Speaking on behalf of others during the protest, Goodhead said: “I want to send a clear message to the Federal Government of Nigeria.
“Tinubu believes that Wike delivered Rivers State to him but even Wike failed in his unit. He failed in his ward and even in his LGA.
“We are here to tell Ahmed Bola Tinubu to call Wike to order because the next time he comes into Rivers State to disturb the peace of the state we’ll not fold our hands and watch.
“Wike should come to Rivers State and we’ll show him what it means to hold Rivers State. We dare you, to come back to Rivers State again if you’re a man.”
