Why I Sacked Rivers Commissioner For Environment – Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has revealed that he dismissed his Commissioner for Environment, Dr Igbiks Tamuno, on Tuesday for alleged sabotage against the Rivers State Government.

He made the reason known shortly after signing contracts for the construction of more major roads in the state on Wednesday.

Wike said, “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.”
