Insecurity: Wike And Rivers State

Like I told Chris Omodu, excuses are not part of the achievements any responsible government should showcase, not at all.

Gov. Wike took an oath to protect lives and properties, I am surprised you’re implying that he took an oath over what he knows nothing about.

Gov. Wike collects Security Vote of 1.5B every 30days to keep Rivers people safe, if he didn’t have powers to do so, why collect public money?

Ambode assumed office same day as Gov. Wike, he met the Badoo crises in Ikorodu area and the Traffic Robbery on 3rd Mainland Bridge and other areas of the State, he didn’t give excuses, he went to work, today the issues have been addressed.

Elrufai also assumed office same day as Governor Wike, he doesn’t have his own Police but the same Nigeria Police, he took up the challenge of insecurity in the State and has achieved a lot of success

Obiano in Anambra did not get his private Police, he worked with the Nigeria Police to improve Security in Anambra

Darius Ishaku of Taraba met insecurity on ground on assuming office, working with Nigeria Police, he has drastically reduced insecurity

Ortom of Benue inherited the age long Farmers/Herders clashes in that state, working with Nigeria Police, he has improved the situation

In all the instances cited above, nowhere was a personal Police Force given to the Governors but they devised means of working with the Police in improving security

Sadly in Rivers State, our Governor is at war with everybody, every Security agencies, from Police(SARS), to Army, to Civil Defence, etc he is quarreling with them, can’t you therefore see that the Governor is the problem?

OK, assuming your claim that security is an exclusive responsibility of the FG, why then is the Governor blaming and punishing Local Govt Councils and Traditional Rulers over what ought to be FG’s responsibility?

What you have said is that in essence, every other level of govt has a responsibility of security except Gov Wike and I am sad that is coming from a government appointee as yourself

Again, if the Governor needs help, he should ask for it than allowing Rivers people die daily
