Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike on Valentine Day lifted the suspension Â of the State Finance Commissioner, Dr Magnus Kpakol and the State Accountant-General, Â Sir Abere Dagogo.
Addressing Rivers State public servants and political Â leaders during Â a Special Valentine Couples Night Â organised by his wife, Justice Â Eberechi Suzzette Nyesom-Wike at the Government House, Port Harcourt, Governor Wike Â said Â the suspension Â was lifted in deference Â to the interventions Â by different Â political Â leaders and as a show of love during Â the Â valentine.
Governor Wike Â charged Â political appointees to differentiate between friendship and governance Â in the discharge Â of their respective Â functions.
He said: â€œGovernance Â is a serious Â business. It is not friendship. Â When it comes to governance I wonâ€™t know friendship.
â€œI will lift the suspension on the Finance Commissioner and the Accountant-General, but they must henceforth Â take Â their functions Â seriously. Â Next time, I will not take into consideration Â the please of political Â stakeholdersâ€.
He advised all political Â appointees to take their responsibilities Â seriously Â as his administration Â must succeed in the delivery Â of Â projects contained Â in his development Â blueprint.
Special Assistant to the Rivers State Governor,Â
