- Governor Wike has alleged that the country has collapsed under APC administration
- Wike passed the verdict on Tuesday, April 27, in Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers state
- According to him, many governors of APC derive joy in running to Abuja instead of tackling crises in their states
Amid killings in some states of the federation by bandits, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has lambasted some of his colleagues over the incidents.
Legit.ng gathered that Wike made this known on Tuesday, April 27, during an interactive session with some traditional rulers, political leaders, and other stakeholders at the Government House in Port Harcourt.
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.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that some governors and senators expressed great concerns about incessant killings in Nigeria.
It was reported that the prominent Nigerians on Tuesday, April 27, asked President Muhammadu Buhari to seek foreign help in order to end insecurity in the country.
The governors warned the federal government that insecurity in the country was getting out of control.
In a related report, the Anambra state governor, Willie Obiano, and Governor Nyesom Wike imposed curfews in their respective states.
The Anambra state government took the decision following an attack by gunmen in some affected communities.
Governor Wike also imposed a night curfew at all the borders Rivers shares with Abia, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, and Imo.
The governor took the measure following recent attacks and killings of security operatives by gunmen.
Speaking in a state broadcast on Tuesday, April 27, WIke disclosed that the curfew would take effect from Wednesday, April 28, by 8 pm.
