Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has condemned the silence being exhibited by the Nigeria Governors Forum heightened insecurity in the country.
Governor Wike said this during the commissioning of the Obagi-Woji Street in GRA, Port Harcourt challenged them to stop keeping quiet.
The Governor during his speech stated that his administration is committed to developing the state and also added that it was wrong for the Governors forum to sit on the fence in a matter that is ravaging the country.
‘Everything has collapsed in the country. Security has collapsed, the economy has collapsed, there is nothing working in Nigeria.’
‘People should know that we are not just talking because we want to talk. I heard they say the Progressives Governors and the Governor’s forum are speaking on the level of insecurity. No! They should come out and say that the party in power has failed Nigerians.’
‘Nigerians gave power to the APC. Therefore; they must own up that they have failed Nigerians,’ Wike said.
The Forum which is the umbrella organization of all the 36 states governors in Nigeria is being chaired by the APC governor of Ekiti state Kayode Fayemi who was elected to lead the organization on Wednesday May 13 2019 to lead the organization for two years.
The reason for the silence of the forum will not be unconnected to the fact that the forum is currently being led and highly dominated by the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC which is a party of Mr President who have failed in delivering on his campaign promises which security is atop.
