APC welcomes resignation of Wike spokesman

06 November 2015, 16:05

Rivers - The Rivers State Chapter of All Progressives Congress is rejoicing at the resignation of Opunabo Inko-Tariah, spokesperson of Governor Nyesom Wike.

Inko-Tariah’s resignation was announced on Friday.

He accused Wike of starving him of funds and “stubbornness” in heading professional media advice.

APC lauded the development.

"APC welcomes the uncommon courage displayed by Opunabo Inko-Tariah in resigning as the Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to the embattled governor of Rivers State this morning,” said Chris Finebone, APC Rivers spokesperson.

"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,” said Finebone.

Finebone said the party was not surprised Inko-Tariah was 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,” said Finebone.
