It’s unfortunate that Amaechi spent N82million to host Prof Soyinka to a dinner


Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Dr. Austin- Tam George, has expressed  shock that former Rivers  State  Governor,  Rotimi Amaechi expended N82million to host Nobel Laureate,  Professor Wole Soyinka to a 3 hour dinner at a period he refused  to  pay salaries  .
Addressing  Government House, Port Harcourt correspondents on Tuesday,  Dr Tam George  said that the figures  were contained in the hand over  note prepared  by  the  former Permanent Secretary  of  the  State Ministry  of  Information and Communication under the  Amaechi administration. 
He said : “A government  that did not pay  salaries,  closed the courts , but the administration  had the courage  to expend N82million  to fund a dinner for Prof Wole Soyinka. 
“These are facts on ground. The Amaechi  administration  expended the  money under the heading  of borrowed funds.”
The  Information  Commissioner :  “  There is a massive propaganda machine out there misinforming the people about the policy direction of Governor Wike’s administration. They have to respect  the  will of the people.  Instead,  they go about spreading  falsehood  against the  people  of  the state “.
He charged the  news men to emphasize the developmental achievements of Governor Wike with facts because Rivers State is currently dealing with a “ disastrous legacy  of abandoned projects” by the Rotimi Amaechi’s administration.
Dr. George  who noted that the Wike administration is currently facing  a combination of  “ 85%  information war”  and  “ political fundamentalism”  also  said the APC seeking to establish a “ political caliphate”  in Rivers State, by installing Dr. Dakuku whose is a fake political candidate of the APC.  
The Commissioner also described those who  said  Wike’ s  government is serving only  Ikwerre interests as  talking “ anthropological nonsense”  because he is running an  all- inclusive  of government of indigenes from the 23 LGAs of Rivers State.
