Director- General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, Dr. Dakuku Peterside, has described Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State as a cry-baby for accusing the Federal Government of depopula-ting the state through soot and also plotting to rig the 2019 general election in favour of All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state.
He also asked Governor Wike to face governance rather than engaging in playing politics with everything.
Governor Wike had accused the Federal Government of using soot, currently pervading the state, to kill Rivers people and reduce its population, while also stating that APC had concluded plans to rig election in 2019.
Peterside, who spoke with reporters yesterday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, described Wike as a “crying baby,” who rather than face challenges confronting the state has been busy playing politics with the lives of Rivers people.
His words: “The governor enjoys lying and plays politics with everything. It is laughable that the governor will accuse the FG of using soot to kill Rivers people.
“Wike has not created any job, neither has he offered Rivers youth any tangible agenda to make them fulfill their aspirations. He is busy encouraging crime.
“A large number of youths involved in the illegal refinery is an indication of the governor’s inability to engage them.
“Did the Federal Government create the situation that made youths take to illegal refining?”
