‘Wike Hasn’t Distinguished Leadership From Governance’

A Port Harcourt-based Lawyer, Barr. Igochukwu Onukem says the incumbent governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has not been able to distinguish between leadership and governance by the manner he is administering the State.

Barr. Onukem made the observation in response to questions from The Vortex newspaper.

The Vortex had asked the possibility of the APC producing governor in the event that INEC puts its candidate in the ballot to contest the March 9, 2019 Governorship election against the incumbent governor.

Barr. Onukem said Governor Wike’s style of governance which had purportedly excluded a large number of Rivers people will make it easy for the candidate of the APC to defeat him, stressing that the governor had not distinguished between leadership and governance.

He said Rivers people would compare Wike with Arch. Tonye Cole, who he described as a technocrat and know who to vote for.

Onukem commented on the alleged poor decision of Governor Wike in the educational system in the State by bringing home Rivers indigenes studying abroad, the abandonment of Songhai and Fish Farms and contended that Cole would resuscitate these ventures and create employment for the teeming unemployed Rivers youth.

He told The Vortex that criminality abound in the State now because of lack of jobs for the youth.
