Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has blamed the increased insecurity situation in the country on incompetence.

Wike said this when he led the Chief Whip of the Nigeria Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, ex Minister of Works, Mike Onolememen, and other dignitaries on a project inspection tour in Port Harcourt and ObioAkpor Local Government Areas of Rivers State on Thursday February 18.

The governor also alleged that combating criminality and insecurity in the country are often undermined by political inference in the posting of heads of security agencies.

He said;

“There is so much insecurity in Nigeria. There are killings everywhere and they (APC) told Nigerians that they will solve the problem. But the problem is not being solved.

“They appoint Commissioner of Police (CP) based on patronage. A politician from my state will go to see the Inspector General of Police and ask him to give him a CP.

“And the IG will not post CP based on competence to fight crime but based on the fact that the man in the party says he wants so and so person.

“When the person comes, will he fight insecurity? No. That’s the problem we have in this country today. How can I partner with such a government? A government that will not do things based on competence.”
