Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has identified bad governance as a major cause of insecurity in Nigeria, said that all must be done to reverse the trend. While delivering a lecture in Abuja on Wednesday at the National Institute for Security Studies (NISS), Wike said that President Muhammadu Buhari  once openly declared that those who voted for him will get more benefits from his government than those who didn’t.

Wike said, “Now, take for example, with all due respect, when Mr. President said ninety something per cent of whatever will go to only those who voted for him, that alone will create crisis. “That is not part of good governance. I don’t expect a President of a country to say, ‘I will only remember those who voted for you’re? That is not democracy.”

The Governor added that for true development to take place, every stakeholder must be carried along and the government must be responsible.

Wike said, “Now, take for example, with all due respect, when Mr. President said ninety something per cent of whatever will go to only those who voted for him, that alone will create crisis. “That is not part of good governance. I don’t expect a President of a country to say, ‘I will only remember those who voted for me? That is not democracy.”

Wike reasoned that the administration of President Buhari has been known to give one excuse or the other for areas in which it has failed, stating that when the government is not responsible, no meaningful development can take place. He also said that the federal government and all stakeholders must find a way to bring all aggrieved persons to the table and discuss their grievances towards finding workable resolutions.

He said that only when the government is seen as working for all people and not just a particular section can there be talks about peace, security, and sustainable development. “What we have today cannot be said to be a responsive government that will provide all these. What we are hearing is excuse one, excuse two. It is terrible. So, if you don’t have a responsive governance, you will not have environmental sustainability. Because, it requires good governance.
