Wike says sustained injustice by Federal Government affecting Nigeria's Unity


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has regretted  that heightening injustice  by the Federal Government is negatively  affecting  the  unity of  the country.



He also berated the Federal Government for engineering insecurity in Rivers State through  the  use of pliant  security  agencies to manipulate the security infrastructure of the state.

He spoke on Tuesday  at the Government House, Port Harcourt when he granted audience to the President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide, Dr John Nwodo and the executives of the association.

He said: "The Federal Government engineers insecurity  in  this state.  It is unfortunate  that security agencies are sent to plant insecurity  in our state."

The governor  said that he will continue  to  preach  and work for the unity of the country, but warned against impunity on the part of agencies of the Federal Government.

He called for dialogue to ensure the strengthening  of the country. He said that  dialogue  will resolve  the challenges  facing  the country.

On the development programmes  of his administration, Governor Wike assured  that the Rivers State Government  encourages investors through easy  access  to  land for business purposes.

Earlier, the President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Dr John Nwodo called for  the restructuring  of the country  to give every  section a sense of belonging.

He condemned  the  high level of marginalization  against Igbo people by the Buhari  administration, pointing out that the administration  has schemed Igbo people  out of all sensitive  positions  in the country.

Nwodo accused   the Buhari administration  of deliberately refusing to  invest in infrastructure in the Southeast.

The President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide  condemned  the continued  persecution  of Governor Wike  by the Federal Government.  He assured  the governor  that the people  are behind  him in his travails.

He commended Governor Wike  for his achievements  in the area of road construction  and economic  development.  He urged him to also invest  the development of industrial layouts.
