Governor Nyesom Wike of river state has called on his colleagues to be patriot enough to speak against the heightened insecurity in the country
This submission was made during the commissioning of the newly constructed Obagi-Woji street in the Government Reservation Area GRA in the state. The road which is part of his administrations achievement, and one that will bring the much economic benefit to the area.
The Governor, who said his administration is committed to developing the state, added that it was wrong for the Governors forum to sit on the fence in a matter that is ravaging the country.
“Everything has collapsed in the country. Security has collapsed, the economy has collapsed, there is nothing working in Nigeria.
“People should know that we are not just talking because we want to talk. I heard they say the Progressives Governors and the Governor’s forum are speaking on the level of insecurity. No! They should come out and say that the party in power has failed Nigerians.
“Nigerians gave power to the APC. Therefore; they must own up that they have failed Nigerians,” Wike said.
Wike has been against this administration ever since it came to power, and he has not hidden his disdain since then, most especially in the area of security and economy which to him has gone worst since President Buhari lead administrations came to power in 2015.
