Nigerians are disappointed — Wike criticizes senate over confirmation of ex-service chiefs as ambassadors

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has faulted the confirmation of the immediate past service chiefs as ambassadors by the senate. 

Wike in a statement issued on Wednesday February 24, said Nigerians are not happy that the same lawmakers who called for the sack of the former service chiefs following their handling of security, confirmed their nomination due to party sentiments and bias.

The Governor urged the legislators to always carry out their duties bearing in mind that their service is not to their parties but to Nigerians.

Wike said; 

“Nigerians are disappointed with the national assembly for confirming sacked service chiefs as ambassadors. 

“I wonder why senators who agreed with Nigerians when they decried the poor performance of the service chiefs, will sit to clear them for another appointment.

“Let me use this opportunity to express the dismay of most Nigerians to the senate. Convey this to the senate. We must be courageous in whatever we are doing. Everything must not be party affairs.

“You (senators) sat and discussed that they should dismiss the service chiefs. You said they’re not performing.

“Now, the same people who were not performing, you have confirmed them as ambassadors. What kind of country are we?”
