Daily Post reports that a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has described as hypocritical the relaxation of the lockdown imposed by Governor Nyesom Wike on Rivers State.
Eze in a press statement forwarded to DAILY POST on Thursday, claimed that Governor Wike’s action was to allow the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, inaugurate its State Executive Council and as well, to organise a thanksgiving service in this upcoming Sunday, but not to give any respite to the suffering masses as claimed by the governor.
The statement read in parts:
“Governor Wike unlocked us, so he and his party can have their event. Imagine the malevolent tendencies. How else can one define insensitivity? Eze queried.
Eze condemned the organizers of PDP event for disobeying the Governor’s Executive Order on social distancing of not more than 50 people in a hall with a space of 1.5 to 2 meters.
“With this blatant disregard for the COVID-19 directive and the Governor’s directive, I ask Wike to quarantine his disobedient party members who have by that event, put the lives of Rivers State under danger and to auction their vehicles as he did to others that flouted his order. I will like to know also if the Obi Wali Cultural Centre, the venue which was built by Chibuike Amaechi will be dismantled for hosting such a funny event to demonstrate how powerful Wike is”.
