RIVERS STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL AND COMMISSIONER FOR JUSTICE COMPLAINS ABOUT WIKE'S INSOLENCE: 'I AM HIS SENIOR'

Report emanating from a reliable source in the Office of the Rivers State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice indicates that the Honourable Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Chinwe Aguma may be disenchanted with the disrespectful attitude and disposition of Governor Wike towards his Commissioners and other highly placed citizens of the State.


According to the Source, Mr. Aguma was said to have complained bitterly to some guests in his office about what he referred to as continuous disrespect and insult on his person by Governor Nyesom Wike. He  seems to be very unhappy with the Governor.

Quoting Mr Aguma SAN who allegedly said "I received the greatest insult of my life that day from the Governor. He called me on the phone and was shouting at me like a baby. I wondered why he should shout at me and not Tam-George that issued the Press Statement. Honestly, I am disillusioned right now and I wish I was not involved in this whole mess. Aside Government, he should know that I am his senior by age and at the Bar. Let this whole court rubbish end so we can all have peace"

According to the source, Mr. Aguma said the Governor was reacting to the Press Statement issued by the Hon. Commissioner of Information Dr. Austin Tam-George against Prof. Wole Soyinka. " He was the one who gave us (the commissioners) the charge to do everything to put Amaechi on the spotlight and that was what Tam-George did. His quarrel was that Prof. Wole Soyinka was made part of the statement and that Prof has a lot of friends within and outside the Supreme Court; that it might annoy his loyalists. But that was not enough reason for the insult. The out boast was absolutely uncalled for. I am knowing him better by the day. Whatever the Supreme Court wants to do, let it do. Right now I don't give a damn."

Another insider source said Wike might have been angered by Mr. Aguma's lack of capacity and dexterity in political matters and his inability to superintend the other commissioners and Heads of the MDAs in the absence of the Governor, adding that in the absence of the Governor, the Attorney General and not the Deputy Governor was put in charge of Government and not the Deputy Governor.

"The way the Governor made it, if he is not in town, the Attorney General is to be in charge of everything, not the Deputy Governor. She is just there like any other government person. The Governor has always complained that the Attorney General is not handling the situation well."

From fillers around the state and recent spate of defections from the PDP to the APC, there seems to be some major cracks in Wike's camp. Most of his supporters are already feeling disillusioned, especially with what most of them described as high handedness, insincerity and insensitivity towards the feelings of his supporters and party men.
