Wike berates NASS for President’s new loan request
RIVERS State Governor Nyesom Wike expressed sadness that 61 years after independence Nigeria still faces leadership challenges.
The governor said that because of this leadership failure, Nigeria needed God now more than at any time in its history.
Wike said this during the interfaith church service held to commemorate the 61st anniversary of Nigeria’s independence at St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Port Harcourt on Sunday.
The governor noted that there was almost nothing to celebrate for Nigerians as the country celebrates its 61st anniversary of independence, “because its leaders continue to entrench hatred, mediocrity and promote ethnicity. and religion “.
His remarks were included in a statement entitled “Nigeria suffers from a lack of leadership” signed by his media assistant, Kelvin Ebiri.
The governor noted that perhaps the only thing Nigerians can boast of celebrating is the existence of the name Nigeria.
Wike said, “We can’t do the right things. Other countries are talking about the transparency of their elections, we are talking about how we are going to rig the elections in 2023.
“Simple thing; transmit the election results electronically to show transparency, that really, whoever you are declaring won the election but we are afraid.
“Where is the legislature?” A legislature that you turn a blind eye to, whatever they bring, on the loan, you say you are borrowing. A legislator who cannot say that “this money that we borrow, where is it?” Where are you applying? You have no confidence to ask questions.
