The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) has dismissed Mr Dakuku Peterside’s criticism of the move by the State House of Assembly to repeal the State Reserve Fund Law No 2 of 2008 as mere noise making to re-establish himself into public reckoning.
The State PDP in a statement by its chairman, Bro Felix Obuah and signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, said Mr Dakuku’s outburst is unnecessary, positing that his criticism of the move to repeal the failed law has further exposed his inexperience and unwillingness to learn the act of governance from his superiors.
While applauding the steps being taken by the State Lawmakers to redeem the State from such visionless law, the State PDP chairman queried why the State governor, Chief Barr Nyesom inherited an empty treasury on assumption of office if the intendment of the law was to save for the future.
Bro Obuah described as ironical that a fund that was intended to save for the future could be met empty by the succeeding government, stressing that without much argument the law backing such fund has automatically outlived its usefulness and should be repealed outrightly.
