Rivers State Government has described the comments of a factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, Mr. Felix Obuah, that he has summoned Governor Chibuike Amaechi to a reconciliatory meeting with Minister of State for Education, Nyesom Wike, as most disrespectful, ridiculous and laughable.
In s statement by Chief Press Secretary to the state governor, Mr. David Iyofor, the government urged Obuah to show respect for the office of the governor.
Mr. Iyofor said, “It is most disrespectful and ridiculous for Felix Obuah to stand on a podium in the minister’s place and announced that he is summoning Governor Amaechi to a reconciliatory meeting. At this point and with actions like that, it has become pertinent for Rivers people to start asking questions about the stability of that young man (Obuah).
“Part of the problem with characters like Obuah and his backers and sponsors is that they have suddenly decide to forget that Governor Amaechi was chosen by Rivers people, elected and mandated by the people to lead them until May 29, 2015. And it is important that they show respect for the office and the man who occupies that office.
“It doesn’t matter whether they like the face of the governor or not. Once the people had mandated him to lead them, they must show respect for him and the office he occupies, which he holds in trust for the people. But Obuah and his cohorts have been most disrespectful and have been derisively deriding the governor and the office of the governor of Rivers State...”
