Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike of Rivers state has declared that no amount of blackmail and propaganda will alter the termination of the sale of valued state assets to Sahara Energy Limited.
This is according to a statement by Simeon Nwakaudu, the special assistant to the Rivers State Governor, electronic media.
Governor Wike said: “No amount of blackmail will change the situation. The courts are there for them to seek redress.
“Rivers and Lagos States are not the same. No single man can dictate what happens in Rivers State. We have different ethnic groups and culture.”
Wike said that the termination of the sale of valued state assets to Sahara Energy followed due process.
He called on those aggrieved to seek redress in court.
The governor spoke on Boxing Day during the 2018 Ogbakor Etche December Convention at Obiri Etche, Umugwu, Okehi.
He said: “The Rivers State Government was not vindictive in terminating the sale of valued state assets to Sahara Energy Limited. One company used three subsidiaries to illegally acquire state assets.
“If there was any vindictiveness, it was on the part of those who used the State Government to deny Rivers people their valued state assets”.
