Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike says frequent changes of service commanders in the state makes security planning difficult.
He also expressed surprise that the General Officer Commanding of 6 Division of the Nigerian Army was retained in the state despite the mass transfer of officers by the Army High Command.
Speaking yesterday while receiving the new Commissioner of Police in the state, Mustapha Dandaura, he said: “I was reading where they transferred GOCs and other senior army officers, but left this GOC because he did their bidding. You are compensating crime and that is not good for the system.
“There is no crime that is bigger than election rigging, but that man has been left here. Those who are involved in election rigging and oil bunkering are left here because they did their bidding.”
He said his government had concluded plans to launch a new comprehensive security architecture.
