LAGOS, (CAJ News) – RIVERS State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has wasted N120billion during his first 100 days in office, the All Progressives Congress(APC) state chapter has alleged.
The party made the allegation through the State Chairman, Dr. DaviesIbiamu Ikanya, in Port Harcourt.He gave the breakdown of the sum to include the N30 billion Wike borrowedshortly after assuming office, the N10 billion left by the administrationof Rt. Hon.
Chibuike Amaechi and over N80 billion that has reportedlyaccrued to the State from Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) and theFederation Account.
“Chief Wike represents everything that should not be found anywhere nearthe corridors of power. He personifies inaction, profligacy, corruption,maladministration and vendetta,” said Ikanya.“
Wike has not initiated any meaningful project in Rivers State since heforcibly assumed office in May 29th through the blood of Rivers people andin connivance with the corrupt and demented State Resident ElectoralCommissioner, Dame Gesila Khan.”Ikanya said apart from setting up the Judicial Commission of Inquiry andawarding contracts to his companies for the filling of potholes in PortHarcourt and Obio Akpor local government areas, Wike could not justify theexpenditure.
“Apart from presenting roads constructed by the Amaechi’s administrationas his feats in his 100 days in office declaration as no quality road canbe constructed within six months talk less of 100days; sponsoring a mediawar aimed at disparaging and decimating the character of Amaechi andvisiting various churches to pray for forgiveness for the 100 Riverspeople killed in order to install him as Governor,” said Ikanya.
“Wike can only boast of increase of insecurity, kidnapping, robbery andother criminal activities associated with a visionless administration.”
” Today, all the initiatives of the Amaechi administration to curbinsecurity in Rivers State have been annulled by Wike and his cohorts. The result is that Rivers residents now sleep with two eyes open as kidnapping, such as the case of Vanguard Columnist Donu Kogbara is now the order of the day.”
Ikanya accused Wike, who was not available for comment, of failing to declare his assets contrary to the dictates of the Nigerian Constitution.
“We are, however, not surprised about his reluctance to make his assetspublic because he knows that if he does so, Rivers people and the entireworld would be shocked to know that half of the property in Port Harcourtis owed by Chief Wike and his acolytes due to his greed and insatiablecrave for wealth.”
