Rivers State Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has postponed the planned accountability summit, organised by the Rivers state Leadership Advancement Foundation ((RIVLEAF). The summit was supposed to enable the governor render account of his stewardship to the people of Rivers state in the last six years.
The decision was taken in order to enable the governor participate in the funeral of the late stepmother of Dame Patience Jonathan and former House of Assembly speaker, Tonye Harry.
RIVLEAF’s President, Chief Alex Wele, told reporters in Port Harcourt yesterday that the governor rescheduled the forum in honour of the two prominent Rivers indigenes.
He said: “This is to honour the First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan, who will be burying her stepmother in the first week of November, as well as the former speaker of the House of Assembly, Tonye Harry.”
