'Why I Sacked All My Commissioners' – Wike
“You must work with those who are loyal. Those who are not loyal will be shown the way out. Those who are loyal will come back,” those were the words of Governor Nyesom Wike defending his recent cabinet exodus.
But he insists there is no crack in his government.
The governor said the dissolution of the State Executive Council was done in consultation with the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party in the state.
He spoke during the Election Thanksgiving Service in honour of the Majority Whip, of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Evans Bipi, at Saint Martin’s Anglican Church, Ogu on Sunday.
“This is when you know those who are loyal and those who are not loyal. There is no crack in government. We are working together.
“The dissolution was done in consultation with the leadership of the PDP in the state. When you are going into another dispensation, you have to put things in order,” he said.
The governor explained further that the dissolution was done at the appropriate time, adding that most states had already dissolved their respective executive councils.
“In government, there are those hungry to come in and those hungry to go. If you are a political appointee, you must expect any eventuality,” he added.
