HEAR WHAT GOV WIKE SAID, AS HE JUSTIFIES DEMOLITION OF HOTELS IN RIVERS STATE

Share This
Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike has justified his decision to demolish two hotels in the state for allegedly flouting the lockdown order.

While speaking in a statewide broadcast, governor Wike said he decided to demolish the hotels after one of the owners of the hotel unleashed thugs on members of the state COVID-19 taskforce.

“WE ACTED AGAINST THE HOTELIER BECAUSE, APART FROM USING THE FACILITY TO JEOPARDIZE THE LIVES OF OUR CITIZENS IN VIOLATION OF THE EXTANT LAW, THE OWNER AUDACIOUSLY UNLEASHED THUGS LED BY THE ELEME LOCAL GOVERNMENT YOUTH LEADER OF THE PEOPLES DEMOCRATIC PARTY (PDP) AND INFLICTED SEVERE INJURIES ON OUR TASK FORCE MEMBERS WHO WENT TO ENFORCE THE LAW AGAINST THE CONTINUED OPERATION OF THE HOTEL.

AS WE SPEAK, NOBODY KNOWS THE FATE OF THE LIVES OF MOST OF THE VICTIMS OF THAT BRAZEN AND DEADLY ATTACK GIVEN THE SEVERITY OF THE HEAD INJURIES THEY SUSTAINED.

AND SO, WE’VE DONE NO WRONG AS ALL OUR ACTIONS WERE TAKEN IN GOOD FAITH AND JUSTIFIED BY, UNDER AND WITHIN THE PURVIEW OF THE EXECUTIVE ORDERS, WHICH HAVE NEITHER BEEN CHALLENGED NOR SET ASIDE BY ANY COMPETENT COURT OF LAW.”

In response to to the backlash he received following his action, the Governor said,

“WHILE WE WELCOME GENUINE CRITICISMS DIRECTED TOWARDS STRENGTHENING OUR INTERVENTION MEASURES, IT IS NO USE TAKING ISSUES WITH UNINFORMED CRITICS AND SOCIAL MEDIA LEGAL PRACTITIONERS WHO, BLINDED AND PRODDED BY SHEER POLITICS, BIAS AND HATRED, HAVE OPTED TO DEMONIZED AND PAINT OUR LAWFUL AND RESPONSIBLE ACTIONS IN BAD LIGHT.

GRANTED THAT WE MAY NOT HAVE TOTALLY ACHIEVED OUR TARGETS, BUT WE ARE CONVINCED THAT, SO FAR, THE LOCKDOWN AND THE OTHER MEASURES HAVE IMPACTED GREATLY IN CONTAINING AND PREVENTING THE ONSLAUGHT OF THE PANDEMIC ON RIVERS STATE.

WE THEREFORE THANK THE ENTIRE PEOPLE OF RIVERS STATE FOR THE OVERWHELMING UNDERSTANDING YOU HAVE SHOWN EVEN AS YOU CONTINUE TO ENDURE THE PAINS OF THE RESTRICTIONS ON YOUR WELL-BEING AND FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOMS.”

  3. In the previous years, when sandstone was not taken serious as a paving material, the problem was that most people didn't know about it and its suitability for that purpose. Asphalt Paving Colorado Springs CO

  4. Triple bunk beds are a very unique way of freeing up space in a room. Like a traditional bunk bed, they are stacked on top of one another, and are the perfect solution for a crowded bedroom. triple twin bunk bed
