On Wednesday the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has challenged the Nigeria Governors Forum to stop mincing words and speak against the heightened insecurity in the country.
Governor Wike said this during the commissioning of the Obagi-Woji Street in GRA, Port Harcourt.
The Governor, who said his administration is committed to developing the state, 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.
