“His recent actions are termed to be divisive, unfashionable and seen to be tribal mawkishness. These have evaporated beyond compromise and have necessitated this outburst.”

She commended Ehie for the role he played in ensuring that stability returned to Rivers state

The women leader said she was shouting because she felt Ehie was deviating from the track of people’s oriented governance.

Jaja said individuals, groups, and supporters of the state government have complained about Ehie’s divisive tendencies, ethnic mawkishness and Favoritism.

“Edison has personally turned the Government into a one-man business, where people cannot write to the Governor and get favourable responses, and the majority of our supporters are grudgingly supporting but rather complain in the background. So many groups who had earlier mobilized to support the government are seriously considering retreating upon their encounter with the Chief of Staff.”
