GOV. WIKE’S ERRATIC POLICIES SHOWS HE LACKS CAPACITY TO GOVERN RIVERS STATE
~ Ambassador Oji Ngofa
The immediate past Nigerian Ambassador to the Kingdom of Netherlands, Ambassador Oji Ngofa, during a defection ceremony held in honour of Mr. Osaro Nwakaji and others who left the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP)for the All Progressives Congress in Onne, Eleme in Rivers state, lambasted the Governor of Rivers state Barr. E.N. WIKE for his inability to govern Rivers state.
It is quite unfortunate, he does not have the required vision and intellectual capacity to govern an entity like Rivers State.
We can’t say overhead bridge is bad, but too much of it is bad, especially when the state has more important things to attend to, that affects the people directly, such as education, employment and healthcare services.
We must first win the fight against poverty, improve moral standards in government and society to provide a strong foundation for good governance.
The Governor doesn’t understand the basic fundamentals of development, there is no way you define development and it does not lift people out of poverty.Anything that does not lead people out of poverty, give them capacity is not development.
The people of Rivers State are suffering, because everything has been politicized by this administration, forgetting the machinery of government is always subordinate to the will of those who administer that machinery.
Good governance is treating development as a more movement in other to see that fruits of development reach the poor and downtrodden.
