A Port Harcourt-based lawyer has written an open letter Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State over two luxury vehicles he recently acquired as mobile offices.

The vehicles were first noticed at the inter-denominational Thanksgiving Service held last Sunday at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium.

Since then, the people of the state have wondered how much money the state government spent to satisfy the exotic taste of their governor.

The main opposition party in the oil-rich state, All Progressives Congress, APC, claims the vehicles cost N150 million each.




Wike’s exquisite mobile offices comes in ‘Black n White’

Dear Sir,

I write you this letter as a concerned indigene of our beloved Rivers State. I did not set out to write like other electronic vuvuzelas because of a desire to scout for cheap popularity. Trust me, my intentions are quite noble. I may be unable to unlace your sandals, but I am sure that I can draw your attention to those matters which merits your commendation and condemnation, so that your appetite for princely robes, real estate, automobiles and bank-breaking alcoholic beverages can be put in check.

Please sir, don’t be mad at me for revealing the golden nature of your taste. It is not in doubt that you are a man with a grand appetite for grandeur. That is not a secret at all. From your acquisition of choice properties during your reign as Chief of staff to your former boss now turned enemy, to your accession to the laudable comforts of posh automobiles, you have displayed affection for luxury worthy of emulation by aspiring politicians who see you as a role model.

But my worry Sir, is that you have decided not to put your taste for these automobiles in check. I recently heard that you acquired two bullet proof mobile offices reportedly worth three Hundred million naira (N300, 000, 000. 00).

If records serve me right, you are the first governor to have purchased these luxury mobile offices in Nigeria. I know that by this purchase, you have shot Rivers State into the exclusive class of states in the world with a world class throttling office good enough to feed several families and for which great operational expenses would be incurred. Bravo sir! Your swagger and ‘prudence’ is worthy of emulation.

What defies wonder is that you chose to buy two (2) of these sexy automobiles at a period of extreme austerity and great economic strain when your government has for the same reason, discontinued the Rivers State Overseas Scholarship for want of funds. That you also chose to purchase these offices at a period when salaries are yet to be paid and when the dollar is sky-high for want of local investment. This is a testimonial of your ‘frugality and great economic marksmanship’, You are indeed a modern wonder!

Please Sir, permit me to ask you just one or two questions. What is the cost of this your recent swag? I hope the amount will not be shrouded in mystery? I hope it will not suffer the same fate as the 2016 Appropriation Bill which has remained a privately classified document?

Let me congratulate you once again for inflicting your kingly taste on the good people of Rivers State. You have proven yourself a good son, worthy of emulation and have broken every record of economic frugality in an era of austerity.

Please accept my warmest regards!

Yours Sincerely,

Aholu Charles O.

Politicians the same thing. They will be sheep when campaigning and metamorphos to wolf when they won.
