FOR CONSTITUTING NUISANCE IN APC: WIKE TO COMPENSATE IGO AGUMA WITH PERMANENT SECRETARY POSITION FOR HIS WIFE.
Against all known Civil Service Rules and bureaucratic procedures for promotions in the Civil Service, Governor Wike seeks to elevate Mrs. Igo Aguma to the level of a Permanent Secretary as compensation for Igo’s conspiratorial role in causing political nuisance in the APC in Rivers State.
It is on record that since 2015, most Civil Servants in Rivers State due for promotion have not been promoted. Wike now seeks to use available top spaces in the Civil Service to play politics to the detriment of deserving State workers.
Aguma’s wife is not a Director in the State’s Civil service and quite junior in ranking to a whole lot of top Civil Servants who are on the queue for promotion into the Permanent Secretary cadre. Wike’s discriminatory tendencies is unacceptable and must be challenged. Rivers State Civil Service is not Wike’s personal property or inheritance and we must not allow him destroy it on the alter of selfish political expediency.
We are already piqued by the humongous cash and State resources being funnelled to oil the nest of “business men” in the guise of political strategists, only for the State Governor to extend this joke to the core Civil Service of the State by trying to sacrifice merits.
We are resolute on exposing these ills in the governance of Rivers State. Our people are still trying to grapple with the sharing of rice and other essential commodities at Christmas by the State Government from the COVID19 donations made by the Federal Government for onward distribution to the masses.
We have stated it time and again that the Governor of Rivers State has never been interested in empowering young men and women economically in the State otherwise, how can anyone explain why contract for purchase and supply of Christmas rice could not have been awarded and distributed separately from COVID19 palliatives!!!
Rivers people, please wake up!
