Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers state, says if elected president, bandits would flee when they hear his name.
Speaking at a meeting with delegates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from Taraba state yesterday, Wike said he would take the war to them.
“The one problem that our PDP government must solve is to bring down the level of insecurity in this country otherwise there is no way the economy can grow,” he said.
“When bandits hear my name they will run because I will take the war to them. I will be the commander- in-chief in action.
“I will be commanding in projects, in security, in agriculture and the economy together with the armed forces. I’ll be commanding every aspect of life that will make Nigerians happy. This is because I have the capacity to solve the problems of Nigeria.”
“You cannot stop this insecurity if you don’t have state police. You must have state police, there is no two ways about it,” he said.
