April 22, (THEWILL) – Presidential Aspirant under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has vowed to end insecurity in six months if elected President of Nigeria.
Wike, who said this at the Taraba state Exco Chambers while addressing delegates in Jalingo, also said that he will establish State Police as part of his moves to tackle insecurity.
“What Nigerians need is a dogged and fearless leader, that has the capacity to tackle insecurity, banditry, kidnapping and hunger facing the nation.
