The governor said instead of some leaders to be bold in speaking against the ills in the nation and sincerely pursue solutions to them, they indulge in sycophancy.

The Nation also reports that Wike criticised governors under the All Progressives Congress (APC) for being insincere with their claims that their party has solved the problems of hunger and unemployment.

He said governors should focus on finding solutions to the challenges affecting their states, rather than embark on frequent trips to Abuja.

The governor said it was obvious to those who threw caution to the wind to foist such bad leadership that Nigeria had collapsed.
