Gov. Wike blasts Senate for confirming ex service chiefs as ambassadors

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has criticized the senate for the confirmation of the immediate past service chiefs as ambassadors.

Wike, in a statement on Wednesday, stated that Nigerians are not happy that the same lawmakers who had called for the sack of the former service chiefs for the poor way they handled the issue of insecurity, confirmed their nomination because of party sentiments and bias.

He 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 disappointment 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?”
