Victoria Nyeche Under Fire Over Comments Regarding the Tenure of Rivers LG CTC Chairmen

Victoria Nyeche

Declared winner of the April 11th State Assembly election for Portharcourt Constiteuncy 1 of the Rivers State House of Assembly Hon Victioria Wobo Nyeche has come under attack over her comments regarding the continuous stay in office of the 22 Caretaker Committee Chairmen appointed by Governor Nyesom Wike on 9th November 2015.

One of such is coming from Chris Itamunola, who cautioned Nyeche to be guided in her comments regarding the legality of the continuous stay in office of the Local Government CTC Chairmen.

Itamunola stated that  it is either Victoria Nyeche is ignorant of the law or is being economical with the truth, because the eleven members of Rivers State House of Assembly can sit and take decisions since they are presently the composition of the assembly in the eye of the law.

Hon. Victoria Wobo Nyeche, had challenged the continued stay of Caretaker Committee Chairmen of Local Government Councils appointed by Gov. Wike. She insisted that since they were appointed on November 9, 2015 for a period of three months that they ceased to exist as CTC Chairmen of the 22 of the 23 LGAs since February 9, 2016. Arising from that, she has warned that any further act taken by the defunct CTC Chairmen is illegal and null and void.

But a political Analyst Mr Vincent Elechi told PUO REPORTS on telephone that Hon Nyeche lacks the powers to speak on anything that regards to the Rivers State House of Assembly because she has not been sworn in despite the order by the Court of APPEAL

It is not yet clear if Governor Nyesom Wike will dissolve the Caretaker Commitee Chairmen,but public opinions are of the views that the governor may be following the footsteps of his predeccessor who gave little or no regard to Judicial and legal sanctity.
