In a bid to curtail the excesses of criminals, Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Thursday, disclosed that his government was working out ways to create an amnesty programme for cultists and criminals who decide to lay down their weapons.
The Governor stated this when he hosted the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) led by its President, Igwe Achese at the State Government House, Port Harcourt.
Wike pointed out that his administration intends to make the state safe for investors and is working closely with security agencies to ensure that criminality is stamped out from the oil producing state.
The governor also called on NUPENG to consider strike actions as the last option during industrial disputes so as to avoid delays in providing developments.
“I believe that strikes should serve as a last option for unions during trade disputes. The strikes in Nigeria are getting too many and efforts should be targeted at reducing them.”
