Rivers State governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has said that the next president of the country will spend his tenure fixing the ethnic, religious and socio-economic problems allegedly created by the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The governor noted that since the APC administration assumed office in 2015, religious intolerance and ethnic division had deepened.
“And worst still,” he said, was “the politicisation of security.”
He made the remarks during the official presentation of letter of nomination to him for the “2020 Extra Ordinary Personality of the Year Award” by the management of Silverbird Group at the Government House, Port Harcourt, on Wednesday.
Governor Wike said despite the glaring insecurity, religious and ethnic division in the country, the officials of the federal government had continued to live in denial that Nigeria was now more united and secure than ever.
The Rivers State governor maintained that whoever became president in 2023 would spend his entire reign trying to resolve the various socio-economic crisis caused by the present administration.
Governor Wike expressed his appreciation on behalf of the government and people of the state to the management of Silverbird for the recognition.
He said, however, that it was disturbing that the Nigerian media had failed in its responsibility to hold the present administration accountable for failure to provide much desired good governance.
Silverbird Creative Development General Manager, Jacob Akinyemi Johnson, said the award was to let the governor know that he was doing a fantastic job for the people of Rivers State and it had not gone unnoticed.
He explained that Governor Wike was nominated as the Silverbird Extra Ordinary Personality of the Year 2020 because of the projects he had embarked upon and his fearlessness.
