Insecurity: It is not only to borrow money for Nigeria that you’re in charge – Wike tells President Buhari

Nyesom Wike and Muhammadu Buhari(L-R)

Governor Nyesom Wike has accused President Buhari of attempting to shift his constitutional role of securing lives and property to governors.

Recall that during an interview with Arise TV on Thursday, Buhari said he told two south-west governors who came to meet him in Abuja, to return to their states and tackle the security challenges their people are facing because they also campaigned for their position just like him.

Reacting to this while commissioning the 21-kilometre Odufor-Akpoku-Umuoye Road in Etche Local Government Area of the State on Tuesday June 15, Wike enjoined the federal government to admit that it can no longer fulfil the promises it made to Nigerians, adding that admitting weakness publicly when there is failure makes a leader respectable.

He also mocked the President by saying that he is not only in-charge when it comes to borrowing money for the country.

Wike said;

“Mr President, you are the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. You appoint Inspector-General of Police, you appoint the Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Naval Staff, the Commissioner of Police, Director of Department of State Service, and other heads of security.

“Which one do we appoint? How can people appointed by Mr President be under me?

“It is not only to borrow money for Nigeria that you’re in charge. You must also be in charge of other things including security. Who signed order 10? Is it the governors?

“Mr. President was short of calling names of those governors who run to Aso Rock when they are supposed to stay in their states to see the needs of their states and people. 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.

“Thank God, Mr. President knows that I am not one of those that go to visit him over one problem or the other. I, as the governor of Rivers under PDP, you’ll never find me there.”
