Mass Resignation Of Commissioners Shows Wike Hijacked Rivers Govt — G60 Lawmakers...Continue The Full Reading.

Some opposition federal lawmakers, who are under the aegis of G-60, have stated that the recent mass resignation of commissioners from the cabinet of Rivers State Governor Sim Fubara demonstrates that Nyesom Wike, the immediate past governor, had initially hijacked the state government and its resources.

The lawmakers added that Wike’s allies were delusional and lying about resigning from their current workspace which they claimed had become toxic.

They slammed the FCT minister, describing his betrayal and battle with his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, as driven 100 per cent by selfish interest.
