Governor Wike had accused the presidency of using soot, currently pervading the state, to kill Rivers people and reduce its population, while also stating that APC had concluded plans to the 2019 polls.

Speaking with newsmen in Port Harcourt, described Wike as a “crying baby,”, adding that instead of dealing with the plight of the state, he is playing politics with the lives of the people.

Peterside remarked: “The governor enjoys lying and plays politics with everything. It is laughable that the governor will accuse the FG of using soot to kill Rivers people. “Wike has not created any job, neither has he offered Rivers youth any tangible agenda to make them fulfill their aspirations. He is busy encouraging crime.
