the Rivers state governor yesterday Tuesday 30th day in December2019 swore in another Sets of new commissioners and special advisers to pilot the affairs of Ministries in carrying out the responsibilities of government in the state.
excerpts from his speech and admonitions to the new commissioners/special advisers reads as thus:-
“If I catch any of the Commissioners or Special Advisers going to play politics of who will become governor of Rivers state 2023 holding meetings eeemm because it is the turn of this place, the turn of that people, you will go with that turn. I appointed you here to help us to serve the eeeeh state. I did not appoint you to begin to go and hold meetings on who will be governor of Rivers state in 2023. If I hear it, the main fact that am hearing it means that something is going on, I will not even wait I will announce that you have been eeeh removed. You can go and continue to hold that eeeeh meeting. Now your status has changed you must be careful on how you relate to members of the public.
”You must be careful of what you say outside the public because they will now begin to know what is happening in eeeeh government. Even oath now most of you don’t know the meaning of oath eeeeh you took. After state executive council you go and tell them what we discussed in council even take council excerpts, minutes and begin to go out”.
”You don’t know the implication of that weather it is your mother o, your father o, your husband o, is your wife, you have taken oath of secrecy you must be loyal and pay allegiance to the office you have been given out. Several of you never knew that you will be appointed as a commissioner, loyalty is key. Any loyalty of 99.9 is not what? Loyalty, you must be loyal 100%” (Culled from Okah Chris Timeline)
