Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, said on Monday he would not appeal for the reinstatement of Prof. Charles Dokubo as the Head of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP).
Wike, who addressed Niger Delta leaders at the Government House, Port Harcourt, said it would be difficult for him to ask for Dokubo’s recall because of the allegation that the suspended PAP Coordinator used his position to kill people of the state during the 2019 general election.
The governor also claimed the NDDC has not delivered any major developmental project to the region since its inception.
He said the PAP was mismanaged, adding that Dokubo was allegedly detailed to remove him as Governor of Rivers State.
The governor said: “It is unfortunate that the NDDC cannot deliver on regional projects. There are no interstate roads and NDDC has not done any major project. Instead, NDDC is engaged in micro-projects to promote political interests.
“If we don’t work together, we will continue to lose out. The song we should sing is the Niger Delta, not any specific ethnic group. When we sing any specific ethnic group, it is difficult to unite. Let’s not restrict our struggle to any particular ethnic nationality.”
