Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday chided Federal Government (FG) for denying Rivers and other states of the federal significant support in the fight against Coronavirus.

National Chairman, PDP, Prince Uche Sencondus, expressed disappointment over the development at a stakeholder gathering in Port Harcourt to inaugurate the new Rivers PDP Executive Committee (EXCO) chaired by Ambassador Desmond Akawor.

Secondus said, “Governors are working without help from the Federal Government. But for God, the situation would have been worse. Governors are running from pillar to post.

“We must be grateful to Governor Wike for the initiative he took. What the Governor has done has helped to drastically reduce the number of cases. Rivers is lucky to have Governor Wike at this time of crisis .”

Governor Wike, on his administration’s disposition to the pandemic amidst much criticism said on the occasion, “But for the steps, we have taken, number of cases would have been more. What makes a leader is the ability to be firm. I value life more than property.”

Apparently pointing at Sen Magnus Abe over his recent disappointment at Wike on the demolition of hotels, Wike said the former political ally and Secretary to Rivers State Government under Rotimi Amaechi has no justification to question his action on the hotels’ saga.

He said, “Since 2015, we have not demolished any property. But, someone who was SSG superintended over the demolition of several properties. Now the person is talking about the draconian process. My joy is that majority of Rivers people love what we are doing.”

Prince Secondus, Governor Wike and Speaker, Speaker, Rivers State House of Assembly, Ikuinyi Ibani who administered the oath of office on the new Rivers PDP EXCO, praise outgoing State Chairman, Felix Obuah, for handing over a “winning” party, just as they charged the new EXCO to surpass the immediate past.
