Wike Lambasts Dakuku Peterside For Comments On Economy Of Rivers State

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has berated the former Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, Dr. Dakuku Peterside, for stating that the economy of Rivers State is performing poorly.

Wike’s attacks on Peterside were made during the inauguration of the 10km internal roads in Odiokwu Community in Rivers State, performed by the Governor of Sokoto State, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal.

Governor Wike wondered why Peterside, with his educational attainment, would say that merely because the budget figures of Lagos and Akwa Ibom States are higher than Rivers budget, it means that Rivers economy is performing poorly.

He, therefore, stated that Peterside puts a question mark on his doctoral degree, otherwise, how could he say that the performance of the economy is dependent on budgetary estimates.

The Governor queried Peterside’s understanding of governance because he served in the last administration when all the Courts in Rivers State were shut for two years, and they also failed to deliver the Opobo Road to enable Opobo people drive on road to their country home.

He said if a man, who is that ignorant, refused to be silent but comes to public discourse to display such loose grasp of the subject matter, will cause people to question his academic status.
