According to the Governor, who was not happy that the three General Managers namely: Ms Stephanie Gogo,of Rivers Television, Ezekiel Hart of Garden City Radio and Mr Sampson Fiberisima of Radio Rivers  who are supposed to be host of a meeting by the Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria (BON) led by the Chairman, Mr John Momoh in Port Harcourt.
The stations whose MDs were sacked are the Rivers State Television, Radio Rivers and Garden City Radio.
Governor Wike said he was embarrassed that none of the afore mentioned General Managers of the state-owned broadcasting parastatals honoured the meeting.
He, however, charged the BON to always stand on the side of the people and speak the truth concerning the issues in the country at all times.
On his part, the BON Chairman stated that the organisation will remain apolitical at all times.
He further stated that as Chairman of BON and Channels Media Group, he has no intentions whatsoever, to meddle in politics.
BON is holding its 71st General Assembly in the state, which will be focusing on raising the bar in the digitalization of the broadcast industry.

Mr Momoh, therefore, urged the Governor to invest in the state’s broadcasting outfits in that regard.

It was not clear why the three managers were not at the meeting.
