The governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, warned President Muhammadu Buhari to meet the demands of the Nigerians, or he will set the nation on fire.
Wike’s statement comes two days after the federal government has met with leaders in the South-South region.
At the conference, the South-South leaders called for Nigeria to be restructured in accordance with the idea of true federalism.
Wike, speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Thursday, said: “We must understand in this country that political leadership is very key.
“Having the political will to implement what the people want is very serious.
“I don’t want to talk about the issue of distrust or no trust in government. People have raised such issues, that they don’t think that anything will come out of all this dialogue. I don’t agree with that. I believe that if the president does not do, given the opportunities he has now, then, he will be putting Nigeria on fire.”
