From TONY JOHN, Port Harcourt
The supervising Minister of Education, Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike, has declared that his political structure, the Grassroots Development Initiative (GDI) has weakened the Powers of Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Amaechi.
This is even as the state chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Felix Obuah, has stated that about six commissioners in Amaechi’s government had declared interest to join the GDI.
Wike and Obuah made the statements yesterday during the inauguration of executives and wards officials of Port Harcourt City Local Government Area chapter of GDI, held in Port Harcourt.
In his address, Wike stated that Governor Amaechi had become a complainant by appearing before the Human Rights Commission. He said further that if not for the doggedness of the group, nobody could challenge the governor, adding that before, Amaechi could easily order a Commissioner of Police to arrest somebody and charge him for cultism, but that has stopped.
“In fact, if for nothing, they have succeeded for the first time in the history of this country, where you have pushed a governor to now become a complainant in the Human Rights Commission.
“If for nothing, the governor has now turned to a complainant; the governor, would tell a Commissioner of Police to arrest and charge people for cultism. He is, today, complaining to Human Rights Commission.
“If for nothing, he should go home and ask God ‘is it how this world is? That, because of the challenge we are giving to them now, they are now calling everybody and giving fictitious names.
“If not for what you are doing, nobody would talk to anybody; nobody would even know anybody is there. They turned themselves to demi-gods. Today, power has returned to the people and you have the power,” Wike declared.
The supervising Education Minister pointed out the the clamour for the withdrawal from the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mbu Joseph Mbu, was because he failed to take order from them.
