The governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that nobody will be shielded from the military operations against militants sabotaging the nation’s economy.

He stated that all Niger Delta governors oppose the use of violence to settle grievances, pointing out that the governors are billed to meet with the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo on June 7, to discuss and proffer solutions to the security situation in the region.

Speaking  on  Monday, May 23  at the Government House, Port Harcourt when he granted  audience  to  the country’s  military high command led by the Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin,  Governor Wike said : “What’s happening affects our state revenue.  We shall help the military to fish out militants blowing up oil pipelines in the region.”

The CDS was accompanied by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt General Tukur Buratai, Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok Ibas and the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadiq Abubakar.

The governor said that the state government is worried about the resurgence of militancy in the Niger Delta as it negatively affects development in the area.

He said: “As a government, we cannot support economic sabotage. What is going on is economic sabotage. Production is being negatively affected, with the revenue of states dwindling.

“There are ways to channel grievances and it is wrong to do what will negatively affect the people of the region.”


He assured the military high command that the government and people of Rivers state will support efforts to secure the area.

While commending  the  military  for the sacrifice  they have made in providing security  for most parts of the state,  he urged them to  work towards improving security  in Ahoada East,  Ahoada West, Abua/Odual and Ogba/Egbema /Ndoni Local Government Areas  of the state.

Earlier, Olonisakin said the recent resurgence of militancy in the Niger Delta is of serious concern to the military.

“Recent activities of the militants have led to the sabotage of oil and gas infrastructure,” he said.

He said the economy of the nation is threatened by the resurgent militancy, hence the need to stop the insecurity in the region.

Olonisakin urged the Rivers state governor to reach out to his colleagues in the Niger Delta  to resolve  the  conflicts  in the area.

He said that the military high command was in the region to interface with the leadership of the Operation Pulio Shield and other service commanders on how to put an end to criminality in the region and protect the nation’s economy from total collapse.
