Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has warned that he will not hesitate to sack the Caretaker Committee Chairmen and members of any local government areas where cases of kidnapping and abduction are reported.

Wike gave the warning during the swearing in of the new CTC chairmen at the Government House, Port Harcourt.

He charged the chairmen to focus on security and environmental sanitation as their major task in their local government areas and work with security agents in the state to check kidnapping and other security breaches in the council areas.

Governor Wike warned the CTC Chairman in Obio/Akpor,(his local government), Bright Amaewhule to ensure the sanitation of the area and stop engaging in illegal revenue collection.

“For the last time, stop illegally impounding vehicles of companies located in Obio-Akpor in the name collecting revenue. You should not expect that the money you will make within three months will make you rich. You can be my whatever, I am warning you for the last time that I will not save you if I get another negative report about you.”

Some of the newly sworn in Chairmen of Caretaker Committees said that they will strive to meet the demands of the Governor in ensuring a secured and clean environment in their respective domain.
