The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has berated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar for criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Naija News recalls that Atiku had criticized Buhari’s government over the lopsided appointment in the country’s security architecture.
The PDP flag bearer argued that over 17 heads of security agencies under the Buhari administration are Northerners and maintained that if he was elected into power all zones would be represented.
Reacting to Atiku’s promise on Thursday in Port Harcourt, the Rivers Governor opined that they were simply empty words.
He said, “When I hear people go to town hall meetings and they say all kinds of things they say. They say “I will implement restructuring, they will make sure every zone will have a member in the security council, that it is not good for one zone to produce all the security chiefs.
“Why are Nigerians so gullible that anything they hear they take? If you want to say I will implement this or do this, I will say okay this one you have now start from here. If you cannot do this one, can you do the other one when you are there?
Nobody should deceive us. There are many people, who have left offices for years; you see those who are surrounding them, are broke. All they want to do is to have the opportunity to come back to power. Nigerians must open their eyes.
Wike wondered why Buhari was not challenged for the past seven years he has been in power adding that it is during the election period people are coming up with different strategies to deceive the citizenry.
“All these past seven years, you couldn’t challenge Buhari of doing that and now the election has come and you want to win our hearts. We know ourselves. Nobody can fool anybody. Some people say they would form a government of national unity. It is not talking, start now to implement it,” he added.
