Mass resignation of commissioners evidence Wike hijacked Rivers Govt — G60 lawmakers

As mass resignation of Commissioners who are loyalists of the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, hits Governor Siminalayi Fubara administration in Rivers State, Opposition federal lawmakers known as the G-60 have said that the mass resignation was evidence that Wike initially hijacked the State government and its resources alone without giving the incumbent governor any space to breath.
The Rivers State Commissioners for Education and Housing, Professor Chinedu Mmon and Gift Worlu, on Wednesday, resigned from Governor Fubara’s cabinet, citing toxicity for their actions.
Both Mmon and Worlu are loyalists to the Wike, who is the immediate-past governor of Rivers State.
Before the duo of Mmom and Worlu were the former Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Professor Zacchaeus Adangor, and former Commissioner for Finance, Isaac Kamalu, who resigned from their appointments a few weeks ago.
Reacting to the development, the G60 lawmakers, in a statement by their spokesperson, Hon. Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, claimed that Wike’s fight was about desperation to maintain and hold on to public purse and organs of the State government and not about good governance.
The lawmakers said his minions were delusional and lying about resigning from their current workspace which they claimed had become toxic.
They lambasted the FCT minister, describing his betrayal and battle with his party as allegedly driven 100 per cent by selfish interest.
