The Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dakuku Peterside has described the Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike as deceitful man.

Peterside also called on Wike to resign as Governor of Rivers and join the Nigerian police force.

This is following the Governor’s allegation that the police and All Progressives Congress (APC) are planning to sweep the case of the fake INEC ballot papers under the carpet.

Peterside also said “Wike should be reminded that Rivers people and Nigerians are no fools to be treated to a circus show where a state governor is the complainant, arresting officer and prosecutor and wanting to assume the responsibility of police commissioner.

“He will do well to resign as governor and join the ongoing recruitment into police force. Enough is enough with the antics of an irresponsible governor. We have never had it so bad in the state.”

He also accused Wike of refusing to disclose the details of the Rivers state budget, adding that workers are being owed salaries.

The NIMASA DG said “Never have we had such a deceitful government in the history of the state. As at today, nobody has a copy of the state budget for 2016, not even members of the House of Assembly. Not too long ago, two of his commissioners appeared on a live radio programme and were asked by Rivers people where the state budget is, they admitted not knowing the budget of their respective ministries. Is that not a shame?

“Teachers, pensioners, civil servants, doctors, nurses among others are being owed several months salary, yet the deceitful government continues to claim no worker is being owed. Nobody in Rivers state knows the value of projects awarded by Wike. He just wakes up and awards projects the way he likes.”

You will recall that on Sunday, November 6, 2016, the police announced that it had arrested three persons for allegedly printing fake ballot papers for the rerun election in Rivers state.
