He said, “If the Assembly made a mistake, and they have now realised their mistake, what is wrong with that?

“I have signed the instrument of derecognition and he seizes to exist a former governor.”

Asked what will happen if Omehia doesn’t pay after seven days as directed, Wike said government had a number of options.

“But he (Omehia) has to pay or he challenge us in court. The Attorney General will advise us om what to do because the state government has a number of options to take.”
