Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has sacked his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Opunabo Inko-Tariah.

Wike sacked Inko-Tariah today, Friday, November 6, 2015, following a disagreement over a statement released by the latter.

The aide had released a statement accusing the judiciary of ganging up against Wike after a tribunal nullified his election victory on October 24.

The governor however denied authorizing the statement saying that he has the utmost respect for the judiciary.

“We are not one of those when judgment favours you, you says you have confidence in the judiciary. When it does not favour you, you lose confidence in the judiciary,” Wike said.

“I want to say in the past two days, you must have read where they quoted me as saying judicial terrorism or judicial gang-up, I never said so. And I never authorised anybody to say so on this matter,” he added.

However, Inko-Tariah, has denied that he was sacked saying instead, on a local radio station, that he resigned because Wike starved his office of funds and refused to take his advice.
