Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi, has revealed that Rivers State Governor,Nyesom Wike has failed to protect his people from been killed on daily basis in the state.
The former Rivers State Governor stated this on Sunday, during a rally where he received hundreds of supporters of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP who have defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Bera, headquarters of Gokana Local Government Area of the state.
Both leaders haven’t been in good terms in the political scene of the state, as they have criticised each other for gross imcompetency in their form of administration.
“Every government has a responsibility to protect lives and property. The reason there is a government is because the people are alive. If a person dies there will be no government.
“Any government that watches its people killed every day is an irresponsible government. Governor Wike watches his people killed every day.
“I met a woman on Sunday whose husband was killed in front of her with her son watching. It could have been any of you. I can assure you today that this government of Wike has failed.
“When I was your governor, you slept and I kept awake. As governor, I chased away criminals to their holes. I know that the reason they are into crime was because they had no money for them.
“I knew that for you to stop a man from crime you need to provide an alternative means of livelihood. And to do that, I started building infrastructures. I built schools, hospitals and health centres.
“A lot of people were employed in each of the schools and health facilities I built.”
