Oby Ezekwesili, former minister of education and solid minerals, has berated Governor Nyesom Wike over what she termed as “flagrant abuse of power” after he demolished two hotels in Rivers state over the alleged breaching of lockdown.

We recall that in what widely generated a vortex of criticisms and harsh outrage on cyberspace, Rivers government pulled down two hotels on the order of the state governor.

Wike personally supervise demolition of hotel for flouting lockdown directive
Wike had imposed a lockdown in two local government areas and directed all hotels in the area to suspend services immediately as parts of measures to check the spread of Covid-19 pandemic.

He warned residents that failure to comply with the order would attract instant demolition. On Sunday, May 10, photos on social media showed the governor personally supervising the demolition of the hotels.

Amid mounting rage that trailed the demolition, Ezekwesili said the action of the governor is suggestive of “unaccountable governance style of the inglorious military era.”

In a series of tweets on Sunday, May 10, the former presidential aspirant described the action of the governor as one lacking “self-discipline in the absence of social accountability .”

Ezekwesili also admonished the owners of the demolished hotels to take legal action against the governor.
