Gov.Wike Gives Reasons For Demolishing Hotels in Eleme and Onne


Rivers state Governor Barr. Nyesom Wike has come under heavy criticism for Demolishing hotels in some parts of Rivers state on Sunday afternoon.

But in a statement obtained by viewsnaijamedia, Wike stated that some powerful individuals were trying to undermine his efforts to curtail the spread of the Covid-19 in the state.

According to the statement "

Government has no alternative but to apply the Executive order which I signed before the lockdown  of Obio/Akpor and Port Harcourt.  I called all the Traditional Rulers and Council Chairmen and told them to ensure that no hotel operates in the State.We are not saying it will be forever. 

This is for now, so that we know where we are. To reduce the cases and check the spread. 
Whether you are PDP or not, all we are saying is that nobody is above the law. If we can do this to a PDP person,  then you know we are not discriminatory.We said  no hotel should operate within this period.

Unfortunately,  the PDP Youth Leader in Eleme joined others to flout the Executive Order.  Therefore,  the executive order will be applied. We said if any hotel operates,  Government will bring down that hotel. We are doing what we have told people that we are going to do.

Nobody wants to obey any rules. We are saying just for now, keep off, let us see how we can keep our people safe.
