Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike on Sunday, lifted the suspension of the State Finance Commissioner, Dr Magnus Kpakol and the State Accountant-General, Sir Abere Dagogo.

Speaking during a Special Valentine Couples Night organised by his wife, Justice Eberechi Suzzette Nyesom-Wike at the Government House, Port Harcourt, Governor Wike said the suspension was lifted in consideration of the pleas by different political leaders and as a show of love during the valentine.

He advised all political appointees to take their responsibilities seriously as his administration must succeed in the delivery of projects contained in his development blueprint.

“Governance is a serious business. It is not friendship. When it comes to governance I won’t know friendship.

“I will lift the suspension on the Finance Commissioner and the Accountant-General, but they must henceforth take their functions seriously. Next time, I will not take into consideration the pleas of political stakeholders,” he said.
