Port Harcourt - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has demanded the resignation of Gov Nyesom Wike before he completely grounds the state.
The party made the demand while reacting to the suspension of four Commissioners for three months and dismissal of Local Government Sole Administrators in the state.
The party in a statement signed by the State Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, accused Wike of playing to the gallery and likened him to a bad workman who quarrels with his tools.
The statement reads in part: “We are not bothered if Nyesom Wike decides to sack all his commissioners since they, just like him, are a bunch of failures.
"The plot of Wike from the beginning has been to turn himself to an Emperor in a democratic dispensation.
"The sacking, without giving any reason, of his commissioners and dissolving his illegal Local Government Sole Administrators exemplifies this vision”

The statement called on Wike “to take the honourable path by apologising and resigning now that it is obvious that his dreamy empire is gradually crumbling like a pack of cards and in view of the dangers his misguided vision has caused Rivers State, his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the entire Nigerian Nation.”
Insisting that Wike bulldozed his way into the Government House even though unprepared for governance, Rivers APC said the governor must go.
“The evidence clearly shows that Wike is a terrible disappointment to both Rivers State and Nigeria.
"He has taken incompetence in governance to a new height in Nigeria, turning Rivers State to a Rivers of blood where human lives no longer worth much and where kidnapping, assassination and robbery have become the norms.
"Wike must go in the interest of the peace and progress of Rivers State”, the party emphasised.
