Felix Obuah, the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers state, condemned the vandalism of furniture at the official quarters by saying:
“This level of looting is embarrassing and must not go unpunished. It is sad that officials of the last administration will go to that level in their quest to destabilize the incoming administration.”
At the post-inauguration thanksgiving service, held on May 31, Wike announced that he would stay away from the Government House until September because of the vandalisation of the property in the place by the past administration.
However, Tony Okocha, the former chief of staff, has described Wike’s claim about the vandalized facility as false, stressing that the property in the Government House was intact before the immediate past administration left.
