The Rivers State Chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, welcomes the uncommon courage displayed by Mr. Opunabo Inko-Tariah in resigning as the Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to the embattled governor of Rivers State this morning.
As a party, the APC knew that it was only a matter of time before all well-meaning proud sons and daughters of Rivers State who find themselves in Wike’s sinking ship jumped to safety. This is not only because his governorship will soon become history, but because the malevolently unique style of Wike whose hallmark behaviour hinges on divide-and-rule exasperates decent minds.
We are not surprised that the former SA, Media & Publicity is telling sordid stories of neglect and disrespect for his views and advice by the outgoing governor. These are all well-known character pattern of Nyesom Wike.
The APC would like to urge all other well-meaning sons and daughters of our dear state who have found themselves, one way or the other, in Wike’s makeshift government to resign and leave immediately.
At the risk of repeating ourselves, the APC would like to state that Nyesom Wike never planned to govern Rivers State; he simply came to do what he is doing now – loot Rivers State commonwealth for himself. He has seized allocations of the Local Government Councils resulting in non-payment of council workers across the state. He has refused to constitute a cabinet, creating room for him to the Commissioner for Works, Project Inspector, Due Process Office and everything rolled into one just to put away the peoples’ money under his pillow and disburse as he likes.
The APC is in no doubt that many more of our people will soon see the light and take the part of honour just like Opunabo Inko-Tariah has done.
