KNOCK DOWN OF WIKE’S MOTORCYCLE OUTRIDER BY AMAECHI: BREACH OF PROTOCOL AND SECURITY SAYS GLORY EMEH

The Motorcycle Outrider of Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers State was knocked down on Saturday by a vehicle driven by Chibuike Amaechi at the Waja junction in Port Harcourt, a development that has been condemned and described as breach of protocol and security of the sitting governor.

A former Chief of Staff, Rivers State Government House, Chief Emeh Glory Emeh,in a chat with newsmen in Port Harcourt had argued that the governor’s convoy is superior, and therefore takes precedence over any other person’s motorcade in the state,  irrespective of how highly placed.

Chief Emeh, who was a former transport and aviation commissioner in Rivers State further maintained that, as the chief security officer, and the symbol of authority of the state, that the governor has the right of way when ever he is on the road, and that both tradition and the law demand that other road users give way for his passage.

The  chieftain of  Peoples Democratic Party recalled that similar privilege is also enjoyed by the President of the  Federal Republic at the national level, and that in his own case, Nigeria’s  air space is always closed for some time whenever he is billed  to fly out or fly in, just as it is the tradition for roads along his land route to be blocked, all in a bid to avoid  breach of his security.

Chief Emeh Glory Emeh, who is a legal practitioner also reasoned that, as a former governor who had enjoyed these privileges, that Rt. Hon. Chibuike  Amaechi, currently Nigeria’s  Minister of Transportation should have known better, and given  due honour to Governor Wike, irrespective of their political differences, adding that the respect is not necessarily to the occupant but to the exalted office of Governor of Rivers State.
