Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has expressed concerns over the state of the Nigerian nation, claiming the country appears completely directionless.
The governor expressed his fears yesterday, when he administered oath of office on four judges of the state High Court and Customary Court of Appeal, at the Government House, Port Harcourt.
Wike accused the ruling All Progressives Congress as well as President Buhari’s administration of been partisan in the administration of governance across the country.
He also expressed support for the position of General Theophilus Danjuma (rtd), on the security situation in the country.
He said: “Nigeria has got to a point that we don’t know where we are heading. I’m not used to fasting, but, I will fast for God to keep General Danjuma because he has said the truth. It is happening daily in Rivers State.
“We are setting up our Neighbourhood Safety Corps, but, they are generating crisis. We only replicated what is in existence in Lagos State, but nobody queries that of Lagos State. Only recently, Nasarawa State launched its outfit, without being challenged.”
Meanwhile, Governor Wike urged the judges to be fearless and upright in the dispensation of their duties, adding that they shouldn’t be intimidated by the political class in the discharge of their duties..
The judges sworn in were Godwin Ollor and Uche K-Chuku of the state High Court, Legor Senewo and Frank Onyiri of the state Customary Court of Appeal.
