Dakuku Peterside, the governorship candidate for All Progressive Congress, in Rivers state, has traced the rising cases of criminality in state to the lip service paid to security and the deliberate dismantling of an Isreali-trained anti-kidnapping and anti-riot outfit setup by former governor Rotimi Amaechi.
Governor Nyesom Wike
Peterside explained that security has deteriorated in the state due to lack of support for security agencies by Governor Nyesom Wike.
He alleged that the 60 security vehicles that Wike claimed his administration donated to the police and other security agencies in the state was farce and a photo trick claiming that so-called vehicles were line up for photo shoot for the cameras of journalists.
The APC gubernatorial candidate further accused Governor Wike of dismantling the security structures and outfits set up by the immediate past governor of the state.
He went on to alleged that Wike has illegally been mortgaging the future of Rivers State through bank loans without passing through the laid down due process.
Peterside stated this shortly after a meeting with stakeholders of the party in Port-Harcourt. He added that the governor approached the Central Bank of Nigeria on the September 9, through a commercial bank to secure fresh 15 billion naira loan using excess crude account as collateral and again in September 30, approached the same bank for N25 billion loan.
Reacting to this allegation, the spokesman to the governor, Simeon Nwakaudu explained it is not true that Governor Wike is mortgaging the future of the state with bank loans.
Nwakaudu said that the governpor was only forced to take 30 billion naira loan because the immediate past administration of the APC had crippled the resources of the state and left huge debt with several abandoned projects behind.
