According to newly inaugurated Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, the surprising rot and vandalism in the Rivers State Government House might inhibit him from carrying out his official duties from there.
He stated that it might take three months for normalcy to return to the facility.
Wike, while speaking at a post inauguration thanksgiving service explained that bullet proof doors, furniture, cars, crested carpets, curtains and windows were stolen from the government house by the former administration.
He said: “As I speak with you, everything has been vandalised. I will not enter the Government House in the next two or three months.
“There is no vehicle in Government House, not even one. Yet the former governor talks about corruption.”
Despite this, he revealed that he would not be hindered, vowing not to disappoint the people of the state.
Senate President, David Mark, who was also present at the function explained that the achievements of the PDP would be seen in the coming years. He also assured party faithfuls that his party would only be in the opposition for 4 years.
He said Rivers State is now the cornerstone of the PDP nationwide, adding that Governor Wike should rise to the occasion and deliver democracy dividends in line with expectations of the people who voted him.
The post inauguration thanksgiving service reception was attended by Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha, Senator Hope Uzodinma, Senators-elect from the South-South and South-East, Acting National Chairman of PDP, Uche Secondus and the NWC of the PDP.
