Image
The Rivers State Commissioner of Information, Austin Tam- George in a statement released said the rejection of award by the Minister of Transportation and former Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, it's a relief for the government stating the former Governor never did anything commendable to be given an award but fell under the category of past Governors of the state to be awarded.
Rotimi Amaechi was to be awarded during the Rivers State golden jubilee celebration by Nyesom Wike, Governor of Rivers State.
See here: https://aprokokoyard.blogspot.com.ng/2017/05/nyesom-wike-to-honour-rotimi-amaechi.html
But Amaechi rejected the invitation stating Wike's plan to honour him is a "poisoned chalice" 
In a statement released by the Amaechi's media office, it said:
The purported award itself is a contradiction of monumental proportions, a contradiction that can only come from a warped and perverted mind. “From day one as governor, Wike has made it his sole, one-point agen…

NYESOM WIKE TO HONOUR ROTIMI AMAECHI WITH TOP AWARD AT THE RIVERS STATE GOLDEN JUBILEE

Image
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike is said to present an award to his predecessor now Minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, with top awards on the 27th of May as part of activities marking the celebration of the golden jubilee of the state.

Governor Wike will be honouring Rotimi Amaechi with the Grand Service Star of Rivers State.
Former military leader, Yakubu Gowon and former President, Goodluck Jonathan will be part of those that will be receiving awards on that day too.
The interesting thing is how is going to be possible for Wike to present the award to Amaechi as the two have been down on each other since the inception of Wike as Governor of Rivers State.
Both of them are considered to be enemies. 
Will Amaechi attend the event to receive the award? And if he does, how will Wike freely give the award after accusing Ameachi of forming new cult group to disrupt the peace of the state.

Image
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has urged the Army High Command  to desist from posting battalions of soldiers to politicians, saying it is counter-productive  and a threat to national security.

The governor said that the Chief of Army Staff, General Tukur Buratai should go beyond complaining that politicians are hobnobbing with soldiers and take action to check the disturbing trend.




Speaking during the flag off of the construction of the Old Aba Road by Mbano junction in Oyigbo Local Government Area on Wednesday , Governor Wike said all over the world, only the Commander-in-Chief has soldiers guarding him.

He regretted that  in Nigeria, the authorities  have made it a practice  to allocate soldiers to politicians  in the good books of the Federal Government, with such soldiers used for undemocratic actions against the people.

He said: "Who are those approving soldiers battalions of soldiers to politicians?  If they don't want soldiers to follow politicians, they should…

Recession is hitting so hard on people all over the world and as a result people get too serious with life leaving their sense of humour behind. Sometimes we just need a reminder to take life less seriously.
