Rivers State: No more Task Force in any part of the State from August 1. (My Opinion)

Before you start reading this post, please click Follow in red above to follow this page.

Task Force set up by Governor Nyesom Ezebunwo Wike administration in Rivers State. The State Task Force is led by Hon. Bright Amaehule. They are tasked to work on discongesting the roads in Rivers State especially, Port Harcourt and Obio-Akpor Local Government Areas of the State.

Roads like Trans Amadi, Ikwerre road, Agip, Aba road, Stadium road, Woji road, GRA phase 3 and other major roads in the State are key areas the State Task Force should have been concentrated.

Their presence though have brought some level of discipline among road Users and street traders in Port Harcourt metropolis.

Overtime, the leader of the Task Force had come out to praise his men for doing the bidding of the State Government, though this is at the detriment of those who have suffered injustice in the hands of men of the Rivers State Task Force.

Many petty traders in the State have suffered severely in the hands of these men of the Task Force. Many people have seen their goods unlawfully destroyed by the Task Force, some properties destroyed.

On April 16, 2020, I witnessed what could be termed a barbaric action by men who should have known better. They practically destroyed goods and properties belonging to Mgboshimini market in Agip area of Port Harcourt.

My opinion:

Yesterday, a young lady posted a video of herself crying on the social media, Instagram, alleged that her show glass was smashed by the Task Force. In her words; "In this period of hardship and unemployment, Governor Wike Task Force just destroyed my goods and show glass for nothing."

I will recommend that the State Government relieve these Task Force from their duty. They have might be doing good but the way they go about it is condemnable.

From August, I hope there should be no more Task Force in Rivers State.

We don't need them.

Better still, they should be send for trainings on human and crisis management, etc

What do you think about this?
