I Had To Teach My Sacked Commissioner The Limit Of His Power – Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has come out to reveal why he sacked his Commissioner for Education, Dr Igbiks Tamuno.

He recently revealed this briefly after signing contracts for the construction of more major roads in the state, Wike, at Government House Port Harcourt.

According to him, the sacked commissioner wrote to a company to stop work without his approval, and that is very unacceptable in his books.

He added that the fact that the company was Julius Berger made everything worse, so he had to teach him the limit of his power.

His words, “I don’t know how a commissioner can write to a company to stop work without my approval.”

“And Julius Berger for that matter, to stop construction in the entire State. I have never heard of such before, didn’t know commissioners have so much power. I’m saying it because some of you don’t even know the limits of your power.”

“These are contractors working for the state government. He (Tamuno) never interfaced with the Ministry of Works. We have paid Julius Berger and you ask them to stop work so that they will come and ask for variation later?”

“Many have said all these things are political statements. We want to let you know that they are not political. We are serious about it. If there is one road that must be completed within time, it is the Trans-Kalabari Road.”

“It is very key to us, to link up so many communities within the Kalabari area. So, we have tied our funds to these roads. Every month; you (contractors) don’t need to come to us, or write to us to say you’ve done 50 metres, 100metres or 1km, no.”

“The money is paid to you directly every month by the banks. N1billion each. For the Trans-Kalabari road, which is about N13 billion. We believed that you have no excuse not to finish the road in 14 months. I am going to commission those roads next year.”
