*Governor Nyesom Wike : forgives his commissioner, accountant-general

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike on Valentine Day lifted the suspension of the State Finance Commissioner, Dr Magnus Kpakol and the State Accountant-General, Sir Abere Dagogo.

Addressing Rivers State public servants and political  leaders during  a Special Valentine Couples Night  organised by his wife, Justice  Eberechi Suzzette Nyesom-Wike at the Government House, Port Harcourt, Governor Wike  said  the suspension  was lifted in deference  to the interventions  by different  political  leaders and as a show of love during  the  valentine.

Governor Wike charged political appointees to differentiate between friendship and governance in the discharge of their respective functions.

“Governance is a serious business. It is not friendship.  When it comes to governance I won’t know friendship.

“I will lift the suspension on the Finance Commissioner and the Accountant-General, but they must henceforth take their functions seriously.  Next time, I will not take into consideration the pleas of political stakeholders”.

He advised all political appointees to take their responsibilities seriously as his administration must succeed in the delivery of projects contained in his development blueprint.
