I’ll be a proper Commander in Chief ― Wike
Rivers State governor and a presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nyesom Wike, has chided the approach of the President Muhammadu Buhari led government to security, avowing that he will be a proper Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces if he emerges president.
Contained in his address to Oyo PDP delegates at the State government house, Ibadan, on Thursday, Wike said what he, as president, will do is to give service chiefs marching orders and ultimatum to tackle insecurity and fire them if they fail to deliver within stipulated timeframe.
He questioned the leadership ability of Buhari to coordinate, supervise and inspire service chiefs, ministers and his other appointees to deliver on their mandates as expected.
To tackle insecurity, Wike said state police and restructuring are imperative.
He said: “What PDP requires now is not theories. What is required of a president is having the ability and leadership quality to put the best in positions and you being able to supervise and coordinate and give out functions and make sure such jobs are carried out.
