Gov. Wike has explained how the closure of hotels and other businesses drained the state’s finances but was a painful decision that had to be made.
Mr Princewill Osarojiji – whom Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has put a N5 million bounty on – has reacted to the allegations levelled against him by the government.
“Let’s call that demolition what it is: a mistake. It did not pass the moral test. The method was wrong. But the motive was right,” Ross Alabo-George writes in Op-Ed.
Gov. Wike alleges in statewide broadcast that demolished hotel owner unleashed thugs led by the wanted PDP youth leader on Task Force members during earlier closure enforcement.
Sen. Abe, former Rivers SSG and colleague of Gov. Wike has described his demolition and auction of private properties as “a dangerous gamble.”
