I Regret Not Having The Opportunity To Tell Bandits ‘Enough Is Enough’ – Wike

Wike VAT

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said he regrets not having the opportunity to tackle banditry.

Gatekeepers News reports that Wike said this on Tuesday at the inauguration of the dualised Ogbunuabali-Eastern bypass road in Rivers.

The road was inaugurated by Aliyu Wamakko, former governor of Sokoto, who is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

While speaking at the event, Wike said Nigeria’s problems can be effectively addressed if leaders are truly committed to serving the people, adding that his resolve to deliver effective governance would not be in doubt even if was not a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“Leadership is not about party, leadership is about the individual. Party is only a vehicle to actualise your ambition, to be able to tell your people ‘I have this capacity; I have this quality to render services to you’,” he said.

“If you take me away today from PDP to another party, I will still perform. So, it is not because I’m in PDP that I’m performing. It is because I have that passion for my people. It is because I have the commitment to serve my people.

“Take me to YPP and allow me to become whatever I will become there, I will perform. Take me to any party, I will perform. So, it is not the party that makes you to perform.

“I challenge everybody. The problem we have in this country today is that we don’t have people who have that passion, who want to serve their people.

“The only regret I have is that I don’t have the opportunity to tell bandits ‘enough is enough’. If I have the opportunity, the bandits know their time will be gone. It’s unfortunate I don’t have it.

“But this one I have, I will use it and serve my people so that they will be happy and know that they deserve the best.”
