Demolished Hotel: Findings Reveals The Owner Of Prudent Hotel Is A PDP Leader In Rivers

On Sunday morning, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, had personally supervised the demolision of Prudent Hotel at Alode in Eleme LGA of the state.

The Governor had earlier marked the Hotel, and Etemeteh Hotel in Onne, for demolition for allegedly flouting his government’s directive on the closure of hotels in the state in a bid to curtail the spread of the pandemic disease-COVID-19.

However, the action of the Governor has been greeted with a lot of condemnation among Nigerians, as many described the action as to harsh.

Other Nigerians who have expressed their view on the demolition, said, the Governor could have converted the hotel to an isolation centre. While many other alledged that Nyesom Wike's action is politically motivated.

However, findings revealed that the owner of the demolished hotel is not only a PDP member in Eleme but also a youth leader.

This was made known through the statement released by the Governor via his Twitter page on the action. He said:

"Whether you are PDP or not, all we are saying is that nobody is above the law. If we can do this to a PDP person, then you know we are not discriminatory."

He added, we said no hotel should operate within this period. Unfortunately, the PDP Youth Leader in Eleme joined others to flout the Executive Order. Therefore, the executive order will be applied.

Speaking further, the Governor said, everyone must obey. Whether you are in PDP , SDP or no party, you must obey the law. If any other person does the same thing, the same rule will apply.

Do you think the Governor's action is justified irrespective of the personality involved ?

Kindly share your views on this.
