Chief of Staff to the Rivers State Governor, Engineer Chukwuemeka Woke has fired at the 2015 Rivers State All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Dakuku Peterside, “for deliberately refusing to understand the tenets of developmental philosophy in governance.”
He described Peterside as a breastfeeding political godson of Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.
In statement in Port Harcourt yesterday, Woke regretted that Peterside had formed the habit of making crude statement against the state government just to gain relevance.
He said: “The attention of the Rivers State Government has been drawn to another unfortunate ranting of the defeated Rivers APC Governorship Candidate.
“In the unguarded statement published in one of the national dailies, Peterside condemned the dissolution of the State Executive Council by His Excellency, Governor Wike. This is most unfortunate and a proof that Peterside lacks knowledge of the rudiments of governance.”
Woke stated that Governor Wike was rapidly developing the State after Dakuku’s boss raped the coffers of Rivers State.
He said Wike has the right to re-jig his cabinet at any time.
“Dakuku spent four years as Amaechi’s Commissioner for Works with an average of about N300 billion without any meaningful improvement on the state of roads. It took the emergence of Governor Wike to develop the road infrastructure of the State.
“Dakuku, a breastfeeding political godson of Amaechi should recall that the Governors of Nasarawa, Borno, Imo, Kano, Bauchi and Lagos, among other APC State governors have since changed their cabinets without anyone raising eyebrows. The 2015 failed APC governorship candidate should keep quiet and allow Governor Wike to concentrate on developing Rivers State,” Woke said.
