We’ll dethrone monarchs involved in politics –Wike


The Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, has said that the state government will remove traditional rulers involved in partisan politics.

The governor, who gave the warning in Port Harcourt on Tuesday while declaring open the 104th quarterly general meeting of the state Council of Traditional Rulers, maintained that traditional rulers were expected to serve all their subjects.

He said, “We have decided to weed out all the traditional rulers that are involved in active politics from the system in the interest of the state and the communities that they are meant to serve.”

Wike promised the monarchs that the development drive of his administration would get to the local government areas of the state, saying, “No part of the state will be left behind in our quest to develop our state.”
