Nigeria: Wike to Buhari - Don't Transfer Role of Security to Govs

15 June 2021

The governor pointed out that it was time Nigerians began to compare the performances of PDP and APC governors in office.

He said Mr President was short of calling names of those governors who run to Aso Rock when they are supposed to stay in their states to see the needs of their states and people.

"Mr President should have come out openly and said, my APC governors, stop worrying me. Go back to your states and do your work. On that, I support him.

"Thank God, Mr President knows that I am not one of those that go to visit him over one problem or the other. I, as the governor of Rivers under PDP, you'll never find me there."

Meanwhile, former Senate President, Senator David Mark, who performed the commissioning of the 21 kilometers Odufor-Akpoku-Umuoye Road, noted the excitement expressed on the faces of the locals who are directly impacted by the project.

He noted that even those in opposition in the state have become so weak to have anything more to say against Governor Wike who is not only performing, but has remained as a strong pillar of the PDP.

"I told him I'll be here because he loves his people. Politics and democracy is not about enriching one or two persons within a community. The Odufor-Akpoku-Umuoye Road is project that will outlive everybody in this place. The legacy you're leaving behind, Rivers people will not forget you. They will defend you, they'll protect you and they will stand by you always."

"That is why you can walk tall. That is why you can jump into your car and go anywhere because you've shown them love. You've brought democracy to the people. PDP as a party is happy to have you. You're one of the pillars of our great party."
