Governor Nyesom Wike
Governor Nyesom Wike has lamented about the rising insecurity in the nation.
The Rivers state Governor who was paid a thank-you- visit by the Supreme Council of Traditional Rulers of Ogoni nationality at Government House, Port Harcourt on Thursday April 28, said the country is currently on life support.
Wike noted that no one is safe in the country as Governors are also being attacked like other citizens.
“You know how the country is today. Nobody can say that he or she is safe now. Governors are being attacked even on the road like other citizens. The security of the country has collapsed.
“The present Federal Government of All Progressives Congress (APC) has not shown enough commitment to protect life and property of Nigerians.
“Nigeria is already and almost on life support now. Making another mistake will be disastrous. We are praying to God not to let us to die. Let this country not collapse."
Wike accused the APC of refusing to protect Nigerians and also showing no capacity to do so.
“All of us are at risk because the party voted for at the national level have refused to protect us. They have shown that they have no capacity to protect Nigerians.
“There’s no day you wake up and will not hear that 20 people have been kidnapped, 10 people have been killed, army and police officers have been killed, police stations have been set ablaze, and children have been kidnapped from school.”
