Nigerian Governors are not Chief Security Officers of Their States- Wike

The Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Nyesom Wike, has said that no Nigerian Governor could be regarded as chief security officer of their respective states.

Wike said this while answering some questions on Channel Television’s Sunrise Daily show on Friday morning.

Rather, Wike said that Nigerian Governors could be referred to as logistic officers.

According to him, “They [Governors] are chief logistic officers. No Governor is a chief security officer. When it concerns providing logistics that’s what we do. But talking about being Chief Security Officer…no. What control do you have?”

“When I as a Governor wake up in the morning, I can’t find my ADC, I can’t find my orderly and I ask questions, they saiy they have all been withdrawn. So what Chief Security oOficer are you?”
