Former All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Rivers State, Dakuku Peterside has criticized Governor Nyesom Wike over the insecurity in the state.

Peterside also said that Wike’s desperation had led to massive loss of life and property in the state

“What manner of a man is Wike, his desperation to become governor at all cost led to loss of many lives and destruction of properties. Since becoming governor, it has been bad news all the way,” Peterside said in a statement according to Daily Post.

“Many people, including security personnel have been murdered in different parts of the state. Now, policemen have been dismissed from service all because of the inordinate ambition of one man.

“How can the governor of a state force his way into INEC collation centre and under heavy intimidation, harassment and threat to life, force the returning officer to declare a winner when the results of Emohua and Etche local government areas have not been collated.

“He clearly had no business storming the collation centre with policemen and his thugs. He took his immunity to a ridiculous level, thus endangering the lives of people and career of security personnel.

“Here is a governor who cries at every given opportunity, yet he is the one compromising every known government institution to serve to selfish ambition. Never have we had a governor who is so unsure of himself and what he says.

“Not too long ago, he told Rivers people not to participate in the probe panel set up by Inspector General of Police, but the same governor is now crying to Police IG to reveal those behind the killing of two policemen during the rerun election. Same man who vowed not to fund security agencies in the state again is now the one saying he is ready to support them. How do you associate Rivers people with such a man who is not straightforward?” he added.
