APC slams dissolution of Rivers committees

10 June 2015, 12:16Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the dismantling of some state structures by the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike.

The condemnation follows the dissolution of two key commissions on Tuesday.

“The opening stanza of Wike’s journey down the impunity road took a turn for the worse last (Tuesday) night when, a few hours after the newly convened Rivers State House of Assembly of slapstick comedians held a Kangaroo session claiming to investigate the Rivers State Independent Electoral Commission [RSIEC] and the Rivers State Judicial Commission, recommended the dissolution of the two bodies.

"A couple of hours later, Chief Wike announced the dissolution of the two commissions despite the fact that their tenures are guaranteed by law,” said the publicity secretary of Rivers APC, Chris Finebone.

Finebone added, “The orgy of illegality now being unfolded in Rivers State has not come as a surprise to peace loving Rivers people especially members of the APC given the antecedents, character and track record of Chief Nyesom Wike especially within the milieu of governance and politics.”

He claimed Wike, who was not available for comment, was bent on gradually dismantling structures of government in Rivers State with a view to conducting a well-planned programme of vendetta, witch-hunting and reprisal against the immediate past governor of Rivers State, Rt. Hon.
Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and his supporters.

“We would also like to remind him that as much as he is set to please his sadistic inner being screaming for the heads of the innocent, he should remember, that that which he keeps the female, the male is residing elsewhere. Let it be known to the caretaker governor of Rivers State, that even as he is at liberty to strut the political space of Rivers State for the next few months as governor, morning shall come even more sooner than later.”

Wike, the People’s Democratic Party member, has been at loggerheads with APC after he defeated the latter’s Dakuku Peterside in the elections held in March.

APC does not recognise Wike as the governor alleging vote rigging steered him to the post.

“The APC will employ all necessary means within the law to resist and derail Nyesom Wike’s train of impunity which he has just unveiled. The APC shall stop him and his motley band of political jesters from unleashing their orgy of vendetta on the good people of Rivers State,” concluded Finebone.
