Gov. Wike installed INSECURITY ARCHITECTURE in Rivers State - APC
The Rivers State Chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, said it attention has been drawn to a statement by the Gov. Nyesom Wike Monday expressing shock that there is a “plot to reverse the gains made by the state in the promotion of security of lives and property through the re-posting of compromised police officers back to the state.”
The APC in press release signed by its spokesman Senibo Chris Finebone said “we are still at a loss whether the governor made this statement and if he truly did so, then he qualifies to be the greatest living soul in the art of fantasy and make-believe.”
The statement noted that the Rivers people nay Nigerians know that Gov. Nyesom Wike’s strategy for political survival is to purchase and pocket the police, other security agencies and the judiciary, adding that examples of his escapades abound for all to see.
Continuing, the party said t they believe that the assertion was a sign of frustration after his pact with the erstwhile Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase to plant a Police Commissioner in Rivers State to do the governor’s bidding collapsed as a result of the work of providence, and maintained that “it is on record that specific senior police officers that are at Wike’s beck and call in Rivers State who were recently posted out of the State have started finding their way back. The governor is simply crying wolf to cover his ignominious tracks.”
“Gov. Nyesom Wike cannot talk about security architecture for Rivers State when his dismantling of the near perfect security arrangement the former governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi put in place has since resulted into the present security basket case in Rivers State” the APC stated.
According to the APC Gov. Wike actually intended to quarrel with the efforts by the Police to alter the ‘insecurity architecture’ he deliberately installed in Rivers State, alleging that Gov. Wike it was that dismantled the Israeli-trained C4i unit that banished kidnapping and other dangerous crimes in Rivers State during the administration of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.
The APC recalled that it was the PDP and Nyesom Wike that revived, activated and franchised already dismantled cult groups across the State for the purpose of killing and hijacking the 2015 election results in Rivers State.
“It is on record that the governor has now realised that he cannot rein in his creation that has become classical Frankenstein monster. His recent cosmetic attempts to appear to be fighting criminality is only to fool the public while the real motive is to compensate his private armies across Rivers State and prepare them for the forthcoming rerun elections” the APC declared.
The APC calld on the new Inspector-General of Police and other security chiefs to ignore Gov. Nyesom Wike’s antics by ensuring that his mafia-type strangle-hold on the Nigeria Police and other security agencies is finally broken and laid to rest.
Purported plan to arrest PDP leaders in Rivers State a red herring The Rivers State Chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, has denied planning to cause the arrest of PDP leaders in Rivers State as the forthcoming rerun elections approach as alleged by the PDP at a press conference on Monday.
“The APC is a political party and therefore has nothing to do with security matters. That is the duty of security agencies. No one or political party should connect the APC to such matters under any circumstances” the APC said in a signed by The opposition party in the state recalled that the PDP has made such spurious claims in the past especially before the last rerun elections on March 19, 2016 but no such things happened.
“We suspect that this is a red herring by the PDP to conceal or divert attention from some insidious and mischievous plans by the PDP and the Rivers State Government to undermine the forthcoming rerun elections” the APC declared.
The APC called on Rivers people to be alert to the tricks of the PDP and reject them come July 30, 2016, as the party equally called on security agencies especially the Nigeria Police not to allow themselves to be blackmailed by the antics of Gov. Wike and his party, the PDP.
