Rivers state governor and 2023 presidential aspirant of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Nyesom Wike, has promised a bandit-free nation if he is elected as the president.
The governor vowed to make security his number one priority if he gets the top job, adding that no nation can attain development in an insecure environment. He also opined that the introduction of state police is the only solution to effectively curb insecurity.
Wike argued that local intelligence is a key component of security and such can only be achieved through state policing. He posits that both the state and federal police can coexist provided their jurisdictions are well spelled out to avoid a clash of interest.
Apart from tackling insecurity, Wike also promised that the PDP government under his watch will embark on building infrastructural projects and implement an agricultural revolution to bring the economy out of the current doldrums.
