FG did everything possible to derail my government - Wike/ Wike
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State on Wednesday alleged that since the inception of the Muhammadu Buhari administration, the Federal Government has worked to ensure his administration failed.
Speaking when Ikwerre ethnic nationality paid him a solidarity visit at the Government House, Port Harcourt, he urged the delegation to always work in defence of their democratic rights, despite the antics of agents of the federal government.
The groups included Ogbakor Ikwerre Cultural Organisation Worldwide, Supreme Council of Government Recognised Ikwerre Traditional Rulers, Ikwerre Chiefs and Elders, Ikwerre Gospel Ministers Forum, Iwhuroha Women Association, Ikwerre Daughters National Congress, Ikwerre in Academia, Ikwerre in the Media and Okpo Club (Ikwerre Lawyers).
Wike asserted that the administration had made tremendous progress in projects delivery because Rivers people have supported him during trying times orchestrated by the federal government.
According to him, “If we can achieve this in two and half years, despite the legal challenges we faced, then, we will do more for the people of Rivers State.
“We give God the glory that we moved ahead in the interest of our people. The federal government has done everything to derail this administration, but we are always succeeding.”
The governor reiterated his call for true federalism and accused the police high command of using the Special Anti-robbery Squad, SARS, for political advantage of their sponsor.
He advised Nigerians not to be deceived by the claims by the Inspector General of Police, IGP Ibrahim Idris, that he would review the operation of SARS, saying the group is being re-positioned for rigging elections.
Wike assured the Ikwerre people that he would continue to work for the development of all communities in the state.
