Wike kick-starts looting master plan – APC Alleges

Dear Editor,

The All Progressives Congress, APC says it is shocked that “accidental caretaker” governor of Rivers State, Barr. Nyesom Wike has confirmed the fears of many a Rivers person by jump-starting his well-planned looting spree of the funds of Rivers State by verbally awarding a multi-billion Naira pot-hole contract to Julius Berger Ltd. without due process.

‘Indeed the days of the locust are here’, Rivers APC said in a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Chris Finebone

“After being controversially sworn-in yesterday, Nyesom Wike made series of questionable pronouncements and appointments without any pretensions to following due process. One of the pronouncements was the curious award and flag-off of a No Pot-hole project which he awarded a few minutes after being sworn in on the same podium.

“The questions now being asked are already many. “When was the process of award of that contract conducted? Was Nyesom Wike in a position to process the award of such a contract as a governor-elect? When and how was the tendering process carried out? Indeed, there are more questions than answers.

“The truth is that Wike’s cavalier antecedents when it comes to harvesting and cornering public money for himself is legendary and he is ever so ready to excel in the act this time around especially knowing full well that his delusionary claim to being governor of Rivers State is for a short period. He very well knows that he is an accidental governor whose illegal stay in Government House, Port Harcourt is only but for a few months. That is perhaps why he has earnestly embarked on his familiar behaviour for which he is so notorious.

“It is important to remind Barr. Nyesom Wike that the immunity he thinks he will enjoy as governor will be swept aside along with the position of governor he acquired with the priceless and invaluable blood of innocent Rivers people and Nigerians by the time the Rivers State Governorship Election Tribunal winds up. In his case, justice will be quick, unwinding and decisive as he will be made to account for whatever he did as a protem governor and the humongous corruption he perpetrated at Federal Ministry of Education as Minister of State and later Minister under President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan”.
