Tinubu removes Wike’s ally after protests, appoints replacement

In another development, President Tinubu removed Chukwuemeka Woke as the managing director of the Ogun-Osun River Basin Development Authority (OORBDA).

Woke was the chief of staff to the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, when he was governor of Rivers state. This came after the appointment was greeted with protests as some groups and individuals said it was against the principle of familiarity and regional representation.

In a statement on Wednesday, May 22, Ajuri Ngelale, presidential spokesman, announced that Woke had been replaced with Dr. Adedeji Ashiru.
