Wike Squandering Rivers Resources On Choice Properties On Ada George Road, APC Alleges

The All progressives Congress (APC) chairman in Rivers State, Hon. Ojukaye Flag-Amachree has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, EFCC and ICPC to investigate the source of money used by governor Wike in acquiring the sprawling properties the governor now owns on Ada George Road in Obio/Akpor LGA, Rivers State.

The chairman who made the revelation to selected Journalists in his office lamented that never since the creation of Rivers State has any Governor recklessly acquired or built properties while in office the way Wike is doing.

According to the APC State Chairman, “It is no news that the Gov. Wike-led administration has failed woefully in governance of Rivers State. A critical assessment of the Educational, Health, Agriculture, Social Infrastructure, Job Creation and Security Sectors leaves a pitiable testimony and a soured taste in the mouth save for the charade of projects commissioning displayed to insult the sensibilities of Rivers people.

“Three years and counting, Wike has consistently lavished the resources of the poor people of Rivers State on choice properties on Ada-George where he owned only a single structure before he took the oath of office to protect lives and property. While Rivers people languish in poverty, tuition fees of their wards abroad are stopped, workers of Timariv disbanded and so on, Gov. Wike is acquiring more properties running into billions of Naira with threats to revoke the Certificate of Occupancy of those who have refused to sell their properties to him.

“Irrefutable records provide evidence that while Wike spends whooping sums of money to pay off the property owners, expatriate personnel have been contracted for the design, building, furnishing and securing of the latest property he acquired for himself. As I speak, he has closed down and paid off a school, which formerly was about five properties from his known residence. This governor has succeeded in completing more projects for himself as compared to projects in his own Local Government Area – Obio-Akpor in the last three years,” Ojukaye alleged.

The APC in Rivers State is therefore calling on Mr. President to, without delay, direct the Inspector General of Police, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Independent and Corrupt Practices Commission to investigate the Governor to curb his incessant mismanagement of the common wealth of Rivers people. We empathize with those whose property Gov. Wike has forcefully taken and for those who have refused to yield to the temptation and pressure being mounted on them by the governor. Our promise is simple: come 2019, Governor Wike will give account of his service to Rivers people.

    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.
