If Buhari does not listen to the people now that he his given the opportunitie, he will be putting Nigeria on fire - Governor Wike (video)

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has stressed the necessity for President Buhari to listen to the wish of Nigerians. 

The Rivers state Governor who appeared on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Thursday November 26, two days after the federal met with leaders of the South-South region who demanded for restructuring of Nigeria in line with the principle of true federalism, stated that Buhari will be putting the country ablaze if he doesn't hear the people. 

Wike said; 

We must understand during this country that political leadership is extremely key. Having the political will to implement what the people want is extremely serious.

I don’t want to speak about the difficulty of distrust or no trust in government. People have raised such issues, that they don’t think that nothing will begin of all this dialogue. I don’t accept as true with that. i think that if the president doesn't do, given the opportunities he has now, then, he are going to be putting Nigeria ablaze .

Wike also talked about the over-politicisation of governance within the South-South region and why Nigeria should implement state policing structures.

Reacting to Omo-Agege's criticism of the bloc’s governors for not consulting with federal representatives from the region before arising with their demands, the Governor said; 

“The problem is that we play politics in everything. 

Unfortunately, you've got the South-South zone, where you've got PDP governance. it's unfortunate. Now, as I speak to you, I even have a Minister . . . he has never at some point said ‘what can we do for the state, look what I’m thinking’.

So that opportunity has not been there. We are playing politics, saying these Governors aren't members of my party, then I don’t got to ask them. And that’s the matter we've always had.

And we have said, that's not correct, politics have come and gone, we are talking about governance, what affects the people of Niger-Delta. When the time for politics comes, then everybody will go your own way.
