The Governor took the leaders to the Residential Quarters, Offices and the Banquet Hall where key furniture, television sets and electrical accessories were vandalised.

The prominent leaders on the tour were the Deputy Governor, Dr. Ipalibo Banigo, former Deputy Governor, Tele Ikuru, former Attorney-General of the state, Frank Owhor, Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, former Minister of Sports, Dr Danagogo, former Minister of Trade and Investment, Kenneth Kobani, Rivers State PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah, former Minister of Transport, Dr Abiye Sekibo and Nigeria’s Ambassador to South Korea, Desmond Akawor.

Speaking with journalists after the tour, Rivers State Deputy Governor, Dr. Ipalibo Harry Banigo, berated officials of the immediate past administration for embarking on the vandalism of properties of government.

Also speaking, the immediate past Deputy Governor of the state, Tele Ikuru, regretted that officials of the Amaechi administration would stoop so low to steal furniture, coat of arms, crested rugs and electrical fittings in the Government House, urging the governor to take steps to ensure that all those involved in the looting of the facilities are brought to book.

Rivers State PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah, condemned the vandalism of beds and furniture at the official quarters of the governor.

He said: “It is unimaginable that the beds, chairs and official crested rugs in the Governor’s official quarters were stolen. Even the foam they left is Mouka foam, which they used to replace the original foam.

“This level of looting is embarrassing and must not go unpunished. It is sad that officials of the last administration will go to that level in their quest to destabilize the incoming administration “.

At the Banquet Hall of the Government House, officials of the administration allegedly moved away more than 500 chairs and key tables from the facility that sits 1000 persons.

Kitchen accessories in the governor’s official quarters were also allegedly vandalized by officials of the former administration.
