Wike Takes Rivers Leaders On A Tour Of Government House

Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers state, has taken leaders of the state on a tour of the Government House in Port Harcourt, allegedly vandalised by officials of the administration of the ex-governor Rotimi Amaechi.

Daily Post reports that Wike and the leaders visited the residential quarters, offices and the banquet hall where furniture, television sets and electrical accessories were vandalised.
 Tele Ikuru, the former deputy governor of the state, regretted that officials of the Amaechi administration would stoop so low to steal furniture, coat of arms, crested rugs and electrical fittings in the Government House. Therefore, he called on Wike to take serious measures to ensure that all those involved in the looting are brought to book.
Felix Obuah, the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers state, condemned the vandalism of furniture at the official quarters by saying:
“It is unimaginable that the beds, chairs and official crested rugs in the Governor’s official quarters were stolen. Even the foam they left is Mouka foam, which they used to replace the original foam.
“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.
