Meanwhile, the President General of the Grassroots Development Initiative GDM Bright Amaewhule has described the comment by Andrew Uchendu on the Nyesom Wike as “unfortunate”.Bright Amaewhule while accusing the lawmaker of being responsible for the political unrest in the State enjoined him to focus on delivering the dividends of democracy to his constituents “unknown to the people of Rivers State, Andrew Uchendu has been the architect of the problem that is existing between the Rivers State Governor and the Hon. Minister of State for Education.I
n the past 12 years that he has been representing the people, what has he been able to do for the people, nothing very tangible, now if Andrew Uchendu is actually representing the people why was it that it was during his tenor that Rison palm became a company that could not function any longer” he said.
