The APC governorship candidate in the April 11, 2015, election in Rivers State, Dr Dakuku Peterside, has accuses Governor Nyesom Wike, of masterminding political instability in the state for selfish ends.
In a statement he personally signed, Peterside, now the director-general of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), challenged Wike to provide answers to the spate of kidnapping and killing in the state.
He asked Wike to tell the world which government officially promoted and supported kidnapping and the killings of over 1,200 persons within this year alone by cultists.
The statement read in part: “Which government has borrowed more money under one year than all our previous governments from 1967 put together? Which government withdrew nearly 400 undergraduates sent on scholarship abroad by Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi to different countries? Which government deceitfully wants to take credit for projects conceived and delivered by the Amaechi government?
“Under the watch of which government were more policemen and security personnel killed by criminals armed by same government agents than have been killed ever in our history from the creation of Rivers State? Under whose government is multiple taxation legalized? Touting legalized? Extortion made legal?”
It wondered why the state government has been deceiving the people by embarking on what he called “endless circle of biometrics as excuse to owe workers and pensioners six months salaries.”
