Nigeria Is Sinking Irreversibly Down the Abyss – Gov Wike

Nigeria Is Sinking Irreversibly Down the Abyss – Gov Wike

Gov Wike

Published by Family Writers


Rivers State Governor, Chief Ezebunwo Wike has declared that the nation is sinking irreversibly down the abyss, stressing that only a united front will salvage the country and set it on the path of growth.

The governor regretted that either by commission or omission, the Federal Government has dragged the country into its worst economic crisis where Nigerians find it difficult to feed.

Wike, who spoke yesterday at the 56th Independence Day celebration, held at the Sharks Football Club Stadium, Port Harcourt, lamented that ordinary Nigerians are dying daily from ailments that are ordinarily curable.

He said, “Just look at the situation of our country at this material time. Never in history has the seeds of disunity, distrust, hatred; intolerance, violence, and terrorism proliferated in our country than now, not even in the years of the civil war.

“By acts of omission or commission, the federal government has pushed the nation into its worst economic nightmare. With inflation on the loose, poverty is increasing as ordinary Nigerians are finding it difficult to have one decent meal in a day. Families are loosing loved ones to curable ailments simply because they can no longer afford necessary medications to sustain their health and vitality.

“Worse still, just as our collective security is being threatened by the activities of motley terrorist groups, such as the Boko Haram insurgents and Fulani herdsmen, most Nigerians are increasingly becoming disillusioned with the country’s failing national institutions, for their inability to mirror the nation’s character and values.

“It looks as if the country is sinking irreversibly into the abyss, but I this is what happens when a country is economically weak and dependent. The need therefore, for all of us to work together with the three levels of Government, to deliver real and sustainable economic independence to our country and our people remains the greatest challenge before all of us.”

Emphasizing that the earlier the thorny issues affecting the nation are addressed, the better for the development of the country, the governor noted that the people of Rivers State are proud of their contributions to the development and economic growth of Nigeria, pointing out that they deserve to be rewarded according to their inputs to the sustenance of the country.
