Speaking further the governor warned that Buhari risks setting Nigeria on fire if he refuses to listen to the restructuring request of the people.

He explained that political leadership is very key in this country, adding that having the will to implement the people's demands is very serious.

Wike said:

“I don’t want to talk about the issue of distrust or no trust in government. People have raised such issues, that they don’t think that nothing will come out of all this dialogue. I don’t agree with that. I believe that if the president does not do, given the opportunities he has now, then, he will be putting Nigeria on fire.”
