Wike’s threat to unseat Rivers traditional rulers

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has threatened to unseat traditional rulers selling employment slots meant for their subordinates, tori4africa learnt.

The Governor also authorized the ruin of an illegal market along the Elele Alimini and Ahoada axis of the East-West Road in the state.

He cautioned everybody engaged in illegal activities in the area to cease because all structures in the marketplaces would be demolished from June 9, 2021.

The statements were made on Tuesday during the commissioning of construction work at the Ahoada Campus of Rivers State University, and the link-up of Ahoada -Omoku Road in Ahoada Town.

He said:

Wike’s threat to unseat Rivers traditional rulers

Let me tell you, the state government has not authorised any market from that Ahoada Junction on East-West Road, keeping to your right and going back to Port Harcourt. Everything there is an illegal structure.

It doesn’t matter who owns them. Whether you come from the South, East, West or North, if you have any of those illegal market structures, from that junction down to Elele Alimini, I’ll bring all of them down.

I did not authorise any market and nobody can build a market on the road. Not even a local government can do that. So all of you who have been going to them to collect tolls from them, be prepared. No market must be on the East-West Road.

 

Wike also cautioned trespassers, who built private apartments within the Western Ahaoda County High School, Ahoada to expect the demolition.

The Governor described the issue of some traditional rulers selling employment slots as shameful.

He said:

“I cannot bring development to this place and criminality will be on the increase. We want companies to come to Ahoada but how will you get employment without companies?

Every day you cry about unemployment when the few companies that have come, you’ll not allow them to stay. You and your traditional rulers will chase them away with your demands.

You even sell chances of employing your people. Woe betides that traditional ruler that I will catch one day, that is selling what belongs to (his) your people because you want to collect money, I will dethrone that traditional ruler that day.
