APC decries lack of Rivers cabinet appointments

02 September 2015, 09:03Okoro Chinedu

Lagos – The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has raised concern at the absence of a state cabinet and commissioners 100 days into the swearing-in of Governor Nyesom Wike.

State spokesperson, Chris Finebone, said during the period, Wike was unable to name a single project or programme his government will undertake for the people.

“While there is nothing wrong in completing projects commenced by his predecessor, he has refused to do the simplest thing: acknowledge and give credit to the initiator of the projects he is now completing and claiming as his achievements in 100 days. This is indeed true to his character of betrayal,” said Finebone.

Finebone said the APC was aware of the grand plan by Wike not to ever constitute the state cabinet by appointing commissioners on the excuse that he would prefer the petition over the sham election that brought him to power to be dispensed with first.

“Knowing full well that he will not survive the tribunal, Governor Wike is determined to govern alone as a sole administrator for the period his government will last with himself as the Commissioner for Works, the due process office and everything else.”

APC is contesting the election ofk Wike earlier this year, citing irregularities and violence.
