Sacked River State Commissioner Who Pleads Anonymity Reacts To Their Sack.
“We were like rubber stamp Commissioners just like the members of the Rivers State House of Assembly. We don’t talk in Executive Council meetings. Only the Governor does the talking.
The Governor starts the meetings with intimidating talks and ends the meetings with even more intimidating and threat-filled talks.
“We had an Executive Council meeting, there and then we told the Governor to treat us as people that are also part of the government.
One of us stood up to tell the Governor boldly that he, the Governor and only him alone is the one making all the money while the Commissioners cannot pay their children’s school fees, hospital bills and other bills.
He went on to ask the Governor to explain to them what he did with the over N150 billion loan he took from banks in addition to statutory allocations from FAAC running into billons.

He also asked the Governor to explain to them what he used the recently released Paris Club Refund of about N35 billion for. At this point the Governor got so livid and went straight to the bold Commissioner.
His ADC intervened. That intervention would put to an end a free-for-all in the Council Chambers and the Governor said, ‘I have the power to hire and fire and I will activate it here and now, Simeon, announce their sack immediately, enough of this nonsense’.”
Speaking during the Election Thanksgiving Service in honour of the Majority Whip of the Rivers State House of Assembly at St. Martin’s Anglican Church, Ogu on Sunday, Governor Wike said that the dissolution was done to flush out those he termed disloyal to the system and to move the state forward.
He also said the action was taken in consultation with the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
He said: “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 PDP in the state.
“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 said.
The governor said that the administration will continue to deliver on its promises to people.
“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. When you are going into another dispensation, you have to put things in order”.
The governor said that the dissolution of the State Executive Council was done at the appropriate time, saying that most states have already dissolved their respective Executive Councils.
