Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has declared that Nigeria is permanently on a dangerous downward slide and heading to no destination.
Governor Wike stated this on Monday, while swearing in four judges of the state’s High Court and Customary Court of Appeal, at the Government House, Port Harcourt, the state capital.
He said that the state’s security has been deliberately compromised by security agencies who work with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to undermine security of lives and property.
According to Governor Wike, the recent deliberate crisis and threat to violence by the APC on the setting up of the Neighbourhood Safety Corps underscored the devilish schemes to promote insecurity in Rivers.
He said, “Nigeria has gotten to a point that we don’t know where we are heading. I don’t use to fast, but, I will fast for God to keep General Danjuma. General Theophilus Danjuma has said the obvious truth. It is happening daily in Rivers State.”
“We are setting up our Neighbourhood Safety Corps, but, they are generating crisis. We only replicated what is in existence in Lagos State, but nobody queries that of Lagos State. Only recently, Nasarawa State launched her outfit, without being challenged,” Governor Wike stated.
He berated the APC-led Federal Government for abandoning the solemn duty of protection of lives and property in pursuit of 2019 re-election.
