Amaechi Stole Doors, Carpets, Curtains From Government House – Gov. Wike
The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has stated that with the alleged level of the looting of furniture, facilities and cars in Government House, Port Harcourt by the immediate past Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, it may take three months before he starts operating from there.
This was even as the President of the Senate, David Mark, stated that the Peoples Democratic Party will return to power at the federal level in 2019 as Nigerians will yearn for the party after four years of the All Progressives Congress government.
Both leaders spoke in Port Harcourt on Sunday during a post inauguration thanksgiving service.
Wike said an inspection of the Government House, Port Harcourt revealed that all the bullet proof doors, furniture, cars, crested carpets, curtains and windows were stolen by the former administration.
He said: “As I speak with you, everything has been vandalised.
“I will not enter the Government House in the next two or three months.
“There is no vehicle in Government House.
“Not even one.
“Yet the former governor talks about corruption.”
Wike, however, said the ugly allegedly situation left behind by Amaechi will not stop his administration from developing Rivers State.
Wike said he will not disappoint the PDP and the people of the state.
In his remark, noted that PDP will only experience opposition for four years as most of the achievements of the party would be glaring to Nigerians within this period.
He said Rivers State is now the cornerstone of the PDP nationwide, adding that Wike should rise to the occasion and deliver democracy dividends in line with the expectations of the people who voted him into office.
The post-inauguration thanksgiving service reception was attended by the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu; the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha; Senator Hope Uzodinma, senators-elect from the South South and South-East; the Acting National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus; and members of the National Working Committee of the PDP.
