In another report, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has lambasted some of his colleagues over incessant killings in Nigeria.
Daily Trust reports that Wike said governors usually run to Abuja to take photographs with President Muhammadu Buhari instead of tackling the challenges in their states.
It was gathered that Governor Wike made this known on Tuesday,April 27, during an interactive session with some traditional rulers, political leaders, and other stakeholders at the Government House in Port Harcourt.
He said instead of some leaders to be bold in speaking against the ills in the nation and sincerely pursue solutions to them, they indulge in sycophancy.
Daily Nigerian also reports that Wike criticised governors under the All Progressives Congress (APC) for being insincere with their claims that their party has solved the problems of hunger and unemployment.
The governor said governors should focus on finding solutions to the challenges affecting their states, rather than embark on frequent trips to Abuja.
Wike said it was obvious to those who threw caution to the wind to foist such bad leadership that Nigeria had collapsed.
