Rivers Gov. Wike, Lifts Suspension on Finance Commissioner, Accountant General

 

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has recalled the State Finance Commissioner, Dr Fred Kpakol and the State Accountant-General, Sir Abere Dagogo, who he suspended last week.

 The Governor said the suspension was lifted because of the interventions by different political leaders.

Wike who spoke at a special Valentine Couples Night for Rivers State public servants and political leaders organised by his wife, Justice Eberechi Nyesom-Wike at the Government House, Port Harcourt, also said he lifted the suspension to demonstrate love which Valentine represents.

 The Governor charged political appointees to draw a line between friendship and governance in what they do as public officials.

 He said: “Governance is a serious business. It is not friendship. When it comes to governance, I won’t know friendship.

 “I will lift the suspension on the Finance Commissioner and the Accountant-General, but they must henceforth take their functions seriously. Next time, I will not take into consideration the please of political stakeholders”.
