Rivers State chapter of Labour Party has urged Gov. Nyesom Wike to constitute his cabinet immediately to ensure effective governance.
The state’s chairman of the party, Prince Reuben, made the call at a news conference where he said Governor Wike’s refusal to set-up a cabinet four months after the election is undemocratic.
Reuben said the party was giving the governor a seven-day period to appoint a cabinet in the interest of the people saying the party withdrew its petition challenging the victory of Wike in court to enable the people enjoy governance and dividends of democracy.
The chairman further said that his party would mobilise civil society groups and other stakeholders in the state to protest against the governor’s refusal to appoint cabinet members.
He also urged Wike to concentrate on governance by initiating capital projects since the people need to see what the huge financial resources of the state are being used for.
