President-elect not official position – Sam Amadi hits Wike over Tinubu visit


The Director of the Abuja School of Social and Political Thoughts, Dr. Sam Amadi has slammed Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State over his decision to declare a public holiday as President-elect, Bola Tinubu visits the State.

Amadi said that Wike probably thinks that the President-elect is an official position, noting that Tinubu’s visit cannot be official.

His statement is contained in a post via his Twitter handle on Tuesday.

Recall that Wike had declared Wednesday May 3 a public holiday for the people to receive Tinubu.

Tinubu is expected to commission some projects, including a flyover at Rumuokwuta and Rumuola junction in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area and a Magistrate Court complex at the Moscow Road in the Port-Harcourt City Local Government Area, during his visit to the State.

However, Amadi wrote, “Governor Wike probably thinks ‘President-elect’ is an official position. The visit of @officialABAT cannot be an ‘official’ visit. It is so painful that leaders would degrade statecraft with pedestrian actions.

“If you degrade language, you degrade leadership, ala George Orwell.”
