ABUJA (Sundiata Post) A few weeks ago Gov Nyesom Wike was in London. He came with all his ebullience. Rivers State students came to meet him. Many of them were stranded. They were sent by the state to the UK but the state has literally forgotten them and their tuition fees.
They came with their youthfulness and grievances. Their governor, a self acclaimed apostle of rule of law, was infuriated. He found it disrespectful of the majesty of his office that they heckled at him and his insensitivity.
So the governor made no excuses.
He told them he would discontinue existing sponsorships for the arts and humanities. The state, he announced, could no longer fund the frivolity of reading Law or Philosophy in England.
Beware of anyone who hums perpetually like a bee. He would exact vengeance even on a butterfly. If he forever looks a little sleep deprived, a little inebriated, watch him closely
Wike is back in the news. Wike has taken coal to Enugu.
You know he has no commissioner for happiness. He ministers happiness himself. He donated state funds to a bunch of bloated federal legislators. Wike who has abandoned students in hunger and destitution in the Uk found money to buy expensive SUVs for federal legislators from Rivers.
One day the poor and the young will get angry enough. and break all fingers poked into their eyes
For those looking for an impeachable offense. You have one staring at you. Federal legislators are scorned in this country for earning ungodly wages and allowances for doing practically nothing.
Now a governor of a state has found the temerity and confusion to dip his hands into state coffers to buy vehicles running into hundreds of millions for the same folks the public is keen to disgorge of public funds.
