Dr. Dakuku Peterside, Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the April 11 2015 election in Rivers state,  on Wednesday said the state governor, Nyesom Wike has no clue on how to effectively tackle the insecurity crisis in the state.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Independent, Peterside since the current crisis started, Governor Wike has not taken any concrete step to stop the violence and killings in the state.

“Governor Wike has no clue on how to tackle the insecurity in Rivers state . This is why the killing and general insecurity is growing geometrically by the day”.

” His dormancy and cluelessness has fueled the speculation all over the state that he is the promoter and sponsor of the political genocide going on in Rivers state”.

“The governor has not taken any step known to me or Rivers citizens to stop the carnage . Rather he was on radio the other day saying after all no prominent politician has been assassinated .  All of leaders will give account to God for our secret and open actions” .

Speaking further, Peterside who lamented the killings of APC supporters in the state said the latest violence in the state is as a result of the March 19 state and national assembly election rerun in the state.

” The latest violence definitely has to do with the forthcoming ejections . You may have noticed a pattern since the year 2014/2015, as we approach elections killing and insecurity heightens” .

” It has been made worse by the constant threat of Wike that his supporters and thugs should take the laws into their hands and resist arrest . He practically advised his followers at Etche to burn people alive and the next day Ofinjite Amachree an APC stalwart was burnt alive in Buguma. You can see the nexus” he said .
