Politics Rivers Gov, Nyesom Wike Sacks Media Adviser



The Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, early on Friday morning, sacked his embattled Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Opunabo Inko-Tariah.

Opunabo, who is also the Publisher of Port Harcourt-based Hard Truth newspaper, on a local radio at 10 a.m., claimed that he resigned, alleging that Wike starved his office of funds and refused to take his advice.


The sack, which was contained in a radio statement on Friday, comes days after Wike disowned a statement from the sacked Adviser, denigrating the Nigerian judiciary.

Opunabo had, on behalf of Wike, while reacting to the ruling of the Rivers State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Holden in Abuja, labelled judges judicial terrorists.
