River State: Tele Ikuru remains my deputy – Amaechi

imageContrary to specu­lations that the deputy governor of Rivers State, Tele Ikuru, who defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) last Sun­day, would be impeached and replaced, Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, yesterday said his position remained intact.

The governor said though, he had been reading about his deputy’s defection to PDP in the media, he (Ikuru) was yet to resign officially, from his cabinet, as there was no letter to that ef­fect.

The Governor, who spoke through his Commissioner of Information and Communica­tions, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, shortly after an Executive Council meeting yesterday, toldjournalists: “status quo remains.”

Amaechi ex­plained that though, Iku­ru dumped APC for PDP, it did not in any way affect his position in his government.

He also debunked the re­cent claim, by the state chair­man of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Felix Obuah, that some commis­sioners in his cabinet, would soon decamp to PDP, describ­ing it as false.

According to him, every member of the cabinet was present at yesterday’s coun­cil meeting, except Ikuru and the Chief of Staff, Government House, Mr. Tony Okocha, who he said, was campaigning as House of Representatives can­didate.
