Residents of Rivers State have commended Governor Nyesom Wike for his relentless efforts to rid the state of hideouts for criminals saying such gesture will reduce drastically crime and criminality in the State.
Some of the Residents, Kenneth Nwoke, Jackson Saturday, Brown Paul and Emmanuel Kacham Taribo while reacting to the demolition of Shanties in some parts of Port Harcourt by the State Government in an interview with Radio Rivers Correspondent Francis Golden stressed that shanties had become a safe haven for criminals in carrying out their nefarious activities in the State.
While underscoring the negative effects of crime and criminality in the development of any state, the respondens insisted that most of the uncompleted buildings and shanties in some parts of Port Harcourt, the State Capital Constituted nuisance to the physical development plan of the State Government.
The respondents noted that the action of the State Government in demolishing the shanties should not be seen as an attempt targeted at non-indigenes in the state emphasizing that the move is to protect the lives and property of the people.
They urged the Governor to disregard any form of criticism but rather sustain the tempo of rid the state of criminality in collaboration with the security agents.
