Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has acquired a powerful whack for his hypocritical method to the containment of the dreaded Covid-19 pandemic within the State following the non-compliance with established well being advisory and rules, viz, social distancing, hand-washing, use of hand sanitizer and nostril masks, etcetera, as he toured a couple of locations to inaugurate street tasks with rented reward singers who gathered at every mission web site for day by day pay.
In his response, chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and erstwhile Nationwide Publicity Secretary of the defunct New Individuals’s Democratic Occasion (nPDP), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, stated it’s deliberate wickedness and sheer recklessness for the Governor to mobilize and threat the lives of royal fathers, political leaders and the poor plenty simply to witness his showbiz of self reward within the title of commissioning street tasks, a few of which have been initiated by his predecessor, Rt. Hon. Amaechi, after in all probability recoating them to look recent.
In an announcement made obtainable to media homes, Chief Eze stated Rivers folks have begun to reap the results of the Governor’s hypocrisy and carelessness, because the state has joined the league of these with the very best day by day determine of Covid-19 infections.
Now that the lethal virus is quickly and menacingly attacking Rivers State and her folks, Chief Eze stated the necessity for Governor Nyesom Wike to apologise to Nigerians for endangering lives has develop into crucial, stressing that the State beneath his watch has turned a laughing inventory.
The occasion chief described as a gross frivolity, the N700million largesse gifted to another states whereas thus far whereas the donor has did not ameliorate the sufferings and pains of victims of the varied disasters which have visited his personal state in latest occasions.
‘Donating a whopping sum of 200 million Naira to Benue State to tar her roads whereas the street to Etche and different Native Authorities Areas are unmotorable and 5 Hundred Million Naira to Sokoto State to rebuild her burnt market and compensate affected merchants whereas doing nothing to handle the struggling of merchants on the burnt Mile One and different markets in Port Harcourt is a horrendous act of naive ignorance.
Attending to the wants of merchants somewhere else and ignoring the struggling merchants in Rivers State who’ve cried their voices hoarse is grossly disgusting to the senses and abhorrent to morality and advantage.
Eze recalled how merchants on the Ikoku Spare Elements Market in Port Harcourt, within the midst of hardship, raised their voices and pleaded to the Governor earlier than he might open the market. In different phrases, whereas Rivers merchants give to Wike, the Governor provides again to merchants in different states.
Until this second, merchants on the fashionable Oil Mill and Slaughter Markets have continued to depend their losses in billions because the markets have remained shut for over eight months now and nonetheless counting. What extra may be stated to be an obscene misuse of energy than a Governor utilizing public cash towards the folks?
Governor Wike, POS (Africa) and Nigeria most excellent Father Christmas has refused to pay even a sympathy go to to hundreds of Orashi folks whose properties and farms have been ravaged by flood or go to Bonny Native Authorities over the killings of her folks by Sea Pirates, Andoni and plenty of different areas of the State that have been bedevilled by one catastrophe or the opposite, but the odious do-gooder packaged and gifted N700million to folks in different States in crass disregard of what’s good and due his personal folks.
Rivers State with all the massive assets at her disposal has refused to pay the salaries of her Civil Servants, minimal Wage, pension to pensioners of which most of them are dying in hunger and poverty, but POS (Africa) allotted such an enormous sum to charity.
The Rivers State Secretariat, the as soon as greatest State-owned secretariat complicated in Nigeria constructed by the adminstration of Alfred Diete-Spiff was adequately maintained and improved upon by subsequent administrations till the emergence of Wike, who now ensures that the Secretariat turns a shadow of its personal self with out water provide and public electrical energy.
At present, beneath the watch of Governor Wike Rivers State now ranks primary on the unemployment index having the very best unemployed inhabitants as revealed by the Nationwide Bureau of Statistics and different establishments.
This ineptitude in adminstration displayed by Governor Wike has brought on Nigerians to see the Federal Authorities refund of over N78.9Billion expended by the administration of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi on federal roads and different accompanying essential infrastructure that gave town of Port Harcourt a reworked facelift and considerably improved the state’s financial system amidst meagre funds from the then PDP-controlled central authorities as a elementary error.
With out attaching tasks for which the N78.9Billion could be used, Chief Eze fears that the refunded sum will certainly go down the drain.
Chief Eze earlier foresaw the Governor’s frivolity and in a latest assertion warned the state authorities towards indulging in one other spending spree and fanfare of squander mania with the N78.9Billion refunded for Amaechi’s works and tasked Wike to make sure that each Rivers citizen feels the influence of the whooping refund sum. However alas, Eze’s concern has turned actuality.
Nigerians ought to recall that President Muhammadu Buhari, who Amaechi (the hated) supported to energy in 2015 gave Wike N75b as refund for cash the Federal Authorities of Nigeria owed Rivers State; funds trapped in Aso Rock for political causes by Apostles of politics with out bitterness. He was on the penitentiary at that self identical hour.
Eze expressed concern that if Governor Wike shouldn’t be correctly monitored, the Federal Authorities could have simply wasted the refund sum within the fingers of a frontrunner who has no plans or want to develop Rivers State, notably now that the State Meeting has retreated to slumber land, until God miraculously wakes the legislature from their deliberate deep sleep.
Eze bemoaned the Gov. Nyesom Wike-led State authorities for failing in all regionally and globally acknowledged commonplace indexes of improvement; a nationwide embarrassment which he stated has culminated within the exclusion of Rivers from the latest N123.348 Billion performance-based grant of the federal authorities to states beneath the States Fiscal Transparency Accountability and Sustainability (SFTAS) Programme for outcomes.
Eze stated obtainable reviews counsel that Rivers State misplaced out of the N123 Billion FG largese owing to the failure of the state authorities to fulfill the straightforward eligibility requirement from states to publish on-line authorised annual budgets and audited monetary statements which has at all times been shrouded in secrecy given the mountain of illicit transactions perpetrated by officers of the state authorities.
At present, Governor Wike has been christened as Mr. Undertaking with none tangible Undertaking similar to the assets which have accrued to the State inside his over 5 years confused adminstration. Eze stated if constructing three flyovers and commissioning of his predecessor’s tasks is what makes him Mr. Undertaking then what’s going to one name Governor Dave Nweze Umahi of Ebonyi State that has constructed 13 higher high quality Flyovers throughout the Native Authorities Areas in Ebonyi State with none pomp and pageantry or wastage of presidency scarce funds in organising the showbiz Wike received himself concerned.
