Insecurity manifestation of Buhari's bad leadership – Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has blamed the recent attacks and killings of citizens on the failed leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said this yesterday, April 27, 2021, during an interactive session with the traditional rulers, political and opinion leaders of Andoni nationality at Government House, Port Harcourt.

Governor Wike noted that leaders of today indulge in sycophancy rather than speak up against the wrongs happening in the country.

“Nigeria has totally collapsed. Look at, today, what happened in Nasarawa and Benue states, how they slaughtered people on the road. See what is happening in Niger State and the All Progressives Congress (APC) governor there is crying, saying he has been talking to the Federal Government but nobody listened to him. And that Boko Haram has come to take over the state, which is closest to Abuja.”

Wike recounted when he raised alarm of the insecurity problems but was shut down by persons in the opposition, claiming it was mere politics.

“Look at Kaduna and Imo states, there is insecurity everywhere. The only anger I have with Imo State governor is this; I don’t know how people politicize things.”

“Nigeria has a lot of problems and they keep running to the villa everyday to disturb Mr. President, for him to see their faces, pose for photographs and will not allow him to work. You know you have crisis at your place, you cannot stay to solve it, but everyday, you go to see Mr. President, so that the world will know that you’re close to him.”

Governor Wike however hinted that the Andoni axis of the Ogoni-Opobo-Andoni Unity Road project would be completed by August.

He charged the different levels of leadership in Andoni to prioritize development of the entire area especially in the area of security.
