- Dakuku Peterside, the director-general of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), claimed that Governor Wike lacks the capacity to govern Rivers state
- Peterside stated that the attempts by the state government to stop the Bodo-Bonny Road project will fail
- He, however, said that the federal government is committed to the project and no amount of resistance will stop it
Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike has been labelled as the worst enemy of the people, following his alleged frequent "serial desperation and fake concern about the growth and development of the state."
Dakuku Peterside, the director-general of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency made this known in Port Harcourt while reacting to attempts by the state government to frustrate the flagging off of Bodo-Bonny road project and the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) Limited.
Peterside declared that Wike should be ashamed of himself for continually being a clog in the wheel of the state progress.
According to him, "The same Wike now wants to frustrate the flagging off of Bodo-Bonny road project that will not only employ our youth but will open up Rivers state to a new frontier."
"Let me assure Wike that the project will proceed as planned and completed. It will catalyse the development of Bonny and Ogoni land.
"The FG is committed to the project, and no amount of resistance will stop it. One hundred Wike cannot stop this project. Such hatred for Bonny and Ogoni people is being taken too far.

"I will repeat this; Wike lacks the capacity, ingenuity and resourcefulness to govern Rivers state. He has no single economic plan to make the state better.
''On the one hand, he cries for development, on another, he plays the ostrich. How can a sensible governor hang the fate of Ogoni and Bonny people in suspense.''
The NIMASA director general also said the governor lacks the capacity to stop such a project or he should be prepared for the uprising of the people, whose lives will forever be changed by the road project.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that the governor said most cabinet members in the government of former President Jonathan took advantage of the gentle manliness of the Nigerian leader.
