Suspension of LGA Chairmen: Governor Wike is doing us a Favour - Samuel Nwanosike

Chairman of Ikwerre Local Government Area, Samuel Nwanosike, has defended the recent suspension of some Local Government Chairmen by the Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike.
Nwanosike who appeared in a live radio programme monitored by City News in Port Harcourt  believes the governor is doing the LGA Chairmen “a favour” and that “the governor is 100% correct by the law of our land” to caution council chairmen.

Recall the Chairmen of Degema, Abua/Odual and Port Harcourt City Council are currently serving an indefinite suspension placed on them by the Rivers State Governor and the governor's action has continued to generate mixed reactions.

But Nwanosike insists: "It is the governor's prerogative to call us to caution when things are done wrongly. In Rivers State today, Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike is intervening in the Rivers State Sanitation Authority. He is intervening in Primary Education which is supposed to be the responsibility of the Local Government.

"We had in Rivers State sometime ago when LGAs were crying of zero allocation. If Governor Wike says fine, the third tier should handle their matter. It will be a disaster. What the governor is doing is coming to our aid".
