River State Governor Nyesom Wike has denied solely taking the decision to destruct two hotels in the state over violation of Coronavirus lockdown order.
The governor made this statement on Tuesday after coming under intense public fire for several days with many people and group calling for his head.
I don’t take decisions alone in the fight against COVID-19. All decisions are taken by the State Security Council and they are for the overall interest of Rivers people.
You know people applaud government decisions when it suits them but when it does not favour them they say it is politically motivated.
“Rivers State Government does not have anything against hoteliers in the state, but decided to shut down their activities because some cases of COVID-19 were recorded in hotels.”SaharaReporters
Governor Wike still put a bit of the blame on the management of the hotels, saying if they have adhered to the lockdown policy all would have worked out fine.
