Governor Nyesom Wike

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has pledged to give the sum of two million naira for each illegal refinery identified by any Local Government Chairman in the State.

He challenged the Council Chairmen to prove that they are not complicit in the noxious business that has continued to threaten the health of Rivers people and the National economy.

Speaking during a meeting at the Government House with the Council Chairmen and heads of the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Navy, Nigerian Air Force, Nigeria Police, Directorate of State Service, and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence, NSCDC, in Rivers State on Friday, Wike demanded the redeployment of a Divisional Police Officer and an officer of the NSCDC implicated in illegal refinery activities in the State.

He said, “Now, every Council Chairman must go and identify where illegal refineries are taking place. If you identify one, you get two million naira. So go and identify as many as you can. I will pay N2m for each one. And I am going to fight against this. Our people are dying and we owe our people the responsibility to protect them”.
