Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to perform his constitutional duty protecting the lives and properties of Nigerians.
The governor noted that as the commander-in-chief of Nigeria’s armed forces, President Buhari’s primary responsibility is to protect all citizens in every state, The Nation reports.
Wike pointed out: “Mr. President, you’re the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
You appoint Inspector-General of Police (IG), you appoint the Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Naval Staff, the Commissioner of Police (CP), Director of Department of State Service (DSS) and other heads of security. Which one do we appoint? How can people appointed by Mr. President be under me?”
Wike made this submission on Tuesday, June 15 during the inauguration of the Odufor-Akpoku-Umuoye Road in Etche local government area of the state.
He said it is time for Nigerians to do a critical comparison between the performance of governors from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress. Wike accused governors from the ruling party as those who often run to the president for help when bandits rage in their states.
His words: “Mr. President should have come out openly and said, my APC governors, stop worrying me. Go back to your states and do your work. On that, I support him.”
