There are various types of leaders in Nigeria today; while some of them make promises and never adhere to them, others simply go about their normal businesses without making empty promises. There are other category who simply rant and follow suit with every action – one of such leaders is the #present governor of Rivers State, #Nyesom Wike.
Few days ago, he caused a serious stir in the #state when he threatened not to move into the #Rivers State government house till September, citing that there government residence was not in appropriate shape. Prior to his swearing in as the governor of the state, Wike equally threatened to carry out a forensic audit of the state’s account under the former governor Rotimi Amaechi’s administration – a threat which he has now carried out.
Just four days after replacing his predecessor, Governor Nyesom Wike has directed all the #permanent secretaries in the state to produce account details of their ministries’ expenditure over the last 18 months.
The governor, who addressed the permanent secretaries during a meeting at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Tuesday, expressed regret that some of them helped the immediate past administration to illegally withdraw funds from government coffers up to May 28, 2015, reported The Punch.
“I want full details and printout of every ministry’s account in the last 18 months. I will not accept any handover note without an accompanying account details.
“The government was coming to a close and some of you were busy signing cheques on 26th, 27th and 28th of May. On May 28, the Transition Committee called most of you and you refused to cooperate because they told you I would not be sworn in,” Wike told the permanent secretaries.
The governor, who promised that he would not embark on a witch-hunt of any civil servant irrespective of his role during the electioneering period, maintained that no civil servant would be allowed to sabotage the efforts of his administration.
He, however, urged the permanent secretaries to work with his administration to revive the state and put back smiles on the faces of the people.
The governor added that all backdated employments and indiscriminate issuance of certificates of occupancy by the immediate past administration would be re-visited.
