PURPORTED SAVE THE OFFICE OF THE DEPUTY GOVERNOR’S WRITE UP: IS A FAILED BID TO CAUSE DISAFFECTION BETWEEN GOVERNOR WIKE AND HIS DEPUTY

The Attention of the Office of the Deputy Governor of Rivers State is drawn to a publication written by a Group called The Inter- Ethnic Network for Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi Purporting to save the Office of the Deputy Governor of Rivers State from Despotic Political Manipulations.

Our first reaction is to dismiss this write up with a wave of the hand since it has no iota of truth in it, but on a second thought keeping silent would mean an acceptance of this blatant lie.
 We wish to state categorically that the Deputy Governor, Dr. (Mrs) Ipalibo Harry Banigo and the State Chief Executive, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike enjoy a very cordial relationship and the Governor has never in any disguise oppressed the Deputy Governor or undermined her Office.
The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has marshalled out the duties of the Vice President and the Deputy Governors of the 36 States and these roles are being played by Dr. Banigo without hindrance.
Insinuations that she is a victim of hig…
