by on June 2, 2015

Governor Neysom Wike on Monday  took leaders of the  state on a tour of  the  Government  House,  Port Harcourt allegedly  vandalised by officials of the administration of the  immediate  past  governor,  Rotimi Amaechi.

The  Governor  took the  leaders to the Residential  Quarter,  Offices and the Banquet  Hall where key furniture, televisions and electrical  accessories were vandalised  by the  former  administration.

Speaking with  journalists  shortly after the tour, Rivers  State  Deputy  Governor,  Dr Mrs.  Ipalibo Harry Banigo berated officials  of the  immediate  past  administration  for embarking on the vandalism  of property  of government  at the Government  House,  Port  Harcourt.

Immediate  Past  Deputy  Governor of  the  state,  Tele  Ikuru  regretted that officials of the Amaechi  administration  would stoop so low to steal furniture,  coat of arms, crested rugs and electrical fittings  in the Government  House.

He urged the  governor  to take steps to ensure  that  all those involved  in  the  looting  of facilities  in the Government  House,  Port Harcourt. Were brought to book.

Rivers  State PDP  Chairman,  Bro  Felix  Obuah  condemned  the  vandalism  of beds and furniture  at the official  quarter of the Governor.

“It is unimaginable that the beds, chairs and official crested rugs in the Governor’s official quarters were stolen. Even the foam they left is Mouka foam, which they used to replace the original foam.

“This level of looting is embarrassing and must not go unpunished.  It is sad that officials of the last administration will go to that level in their quest to  destabilise  the  incoming  administration “.

At the Banquet Hall of the Government House, Port Harcourt, officials of the administration had moved away more than 500 chairs and key tables from the facility that takes 1000 persons.

Kitchen  accessories  in the  Governor’s  official  quarters  were  also  vandalised  by officials  of  the  former  administration.
