SHOCKING, AS GOVERNOR WIKE AMPUTATES SPORTS COMMISSIONER
…experts say it’s partially removal from office
The Commissioner of Sports in Rivers State BOMA IYAYE is definitely going through the most tormentous moment of his life, since he began a public life, as a long serving government official in Rivers State.
This follows Governor NYESOM WIKE’s action to humiliate the longest serving Commissioner of Sports in Rivers State, BOMA IYAYE.
Governor WIKE had in a Government House statement on Friday removed the power of the Sports Commissioner to oversee or control or supervise the Rivers United Football Club.
The Governor said the Rivers United FC shall henceforth be directly under his control and supervision.
Reacting to the development, some sports experts in the state (names withheld), described Governor NYESOME WIKE’S action as a partial removal of the commissioner from office.
Read press release below:
His Excellency, Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has directed that Rivers United Football Club is now under the Office of the Governor.
The Commissioner of Sport is hereby directed to immediately submit every file relating to Rivers United Football Club to the Government House, Port Harcourt.
