Okafor Ofebor/Port Harcourt
The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has dissolved the Board of Directors of Greater Port Harcourt Authority with immediate effect. Members of the board were appointed by former Governor of the state, Rotimi Amaechi.
A statement signed by Emma Okah on behalf the state government, said the Administrator of Greater Port Harcourt Authority, Mrs Aleruchi Cookey-Gam, has been directed to hand over the administration and all property of the Authority to the Secretary of the Authority with immediate effect.Mrs. Cookey-Gam was former Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice and Secretary to the State Government, SSG, under former Governor Dr. Peter Odili’s administration.
In a related development, the Rivers State government has directed all refuse contractors in the state to return to their areas of work immediately and clean up the streets.
The contractors are to meet with Governor Wike on Wednesday at 10:00am at the Executive Council Chambers, Government House, Port Harcourt.
P.M.NEWS learnt that fear has gripped refuse contractors appointed by Amaechi because they may be sacked to pave way for loyalists of Wike.
Wike and Amaechi do not see eye to eye and observers see Wike’s action as perhaps the beginning of the fate that awaits Amaechi’s loyalists in the state in the days to come.
