Governor Wike’s media aide resigns
The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to Governor of Rivers, Opunabo Inko-Tariah, has left the position today November 6, 2015.
According to Premium Times,
Mr. Tariah, in a resignation letter to the governor on Friday, said unfolding developments in the State indicated that his services were no longer needed.
He said that throughout his service as Media Adviser, he did not threaten any journalist or police officer.
“However, with unfolding developments, it is irrefutable that my services are no longer needed.’’
He thanked the governor for giving him the opportunity to serve him and the state as a Special Adviser.
Mr. Tariah wished the governor God’s guidance and blessings.
It is however, alleged that there may have been a lift between Tariah and his Boss.
If you can remember after the Supreme Court judgment earlier last week, Mr Tariah made a press statement which he described the judgment as "a Judicial gang up" but few days later, gorvernor Wike repudiated the statement and distanced himself from it.
The governor has not responded Mr. Tariah’s resignation.
