Many who have watched closely Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike’s fight against coronavirus on behalf of Rivers people have commended him for a good job done. It has been firm, decisive and basically in the interest of Rivers’ people.
This is a war against an invisible and deadly enemy that is claiming lives every day. However, every decisive step taken by Governor Wike leads to unnecessary loud voices of protest from propaganda merchants.
Three days ago, Rivers State Governor, Wike took the decisive step of demolishing two hotels that deliberately flouted Executive Order closing down all hotels across the state. At Prudest Hotel, the wanted PDP Youth Leader and a gang of thugs, inflicted heavy injuries on the Task Force members who were at the facility to stop it from operating.
Several members of the Task Force that went to enforce the Executive Order are lying critical ill at the hospital. But many expect the Rivers State governor to look the other way because the youth leader is a member of PDP.
