Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike said, the endless banditry activities in Kaduna State was a repercussion for Nasir El-Rufai’s evil intention and crisis he plotted against Rivers State.

Wike spoke on Friday when Vice-President of Rotary Club of Port Harcourt, Rotarian Obiageli Ejezie, led other leaders of the association to the Government House, Port Harcourt.

Rivers governor’s Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri, in a statement in Port-Harcourt said the delegation was in Government House to confer on the Governor the “2019/2020 Good Governance Award” for his outstanding achievements in project execution in Rivers.

Wike accused the Federal Government of triggering crisis in Rivers, revealing that his Kaduna State counterpart, Malam Nasir El-Rufai asked the presidency to transfer Rivers Commissioner of Police who was doing well in the State.

He said based on El-Rufai’s wishes, a Commissioner of Police they wanted was posted to Rivers before God stopped their plans.

Explaining further Wike said what is happening to El-Rufai now was because he is an evil plotter.

“I remember when I came in 2015, when they were honouring one of their friends as a Minister on live television Channels, El-Rufai had the temerity to say that (my) election cannot stand in Rivers state and that they will kick me out.”

The governor said APC administration under President Muhammadu Buhari has dragged the nation fifty years backwards.

Having mismanaged the opportunity to make a difference since 2015, Wike urged Nigerians to vote out the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2023.

The Governor told the delegation in 2015, APC convinced Nigerians they were going to offer better governance than the former President Goodluck Jonathan.

But he said: “There can’t be good governance without security and this is based on rule of law. All of us are living witnesses in 2015 when it was alleged that the government of former President Goodluck Jonathan, could not perform. So Nigeria needed a change. What has happened to the change? They have taken Nigeria back by 50 years.”

Wike wondered how long the Federal government would allow the needless killings and abduction of innocent Nigerians to continue.

He said it was no longer acceptable for Nigerians to wake up daily to such ugly news of killings because they expected the government to guarantee security.

He said: “Now, you wake up every morning, students are being kidnapped in so and so State University, people have been killed in so and so State. So, it has become a norm.

“Just wake up in the morning and the first thing you will see on the front page of dailies is 10 people have been kidnapped in Niger State; 20 have been killed in Zamfara State, 5 have been killed in Imo and this happens virtually every day. So, where are we heading to?”
