Since the trending saga of Hon. Shedrack Chukwu the sacked commissioner of power went viral, there has been uncomfirmed stories linking it to the call for Governor Nyesom Ezewo Wike to appoint Prince Isaac Umejuru “The King Of Youths” as commissioner into his cabinet hence led to his sack, especially as it is clear enough that two sons from one LGA can’t be made commissioner.
Hon. Shedrack Chukwu and Prince Isaac Umejuru are both sons of Ogba Land in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area of Rivers State and has positively made impact on there various capacities in ONELGA and beyond.
Gist Reporters earlier made a publication of how the Concerned Youths of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in ONELGA launched an online call for Governor Nyesom Ezewo Wike to appoint the said Umejuru as the Commissioner for Youths in his second administration, the Commissioner for Power Hon. Shedrack Chukwu was sacked by the governor few days after the call was made and was published by Gist Reporters BLOG thereby raising lots of tensions and causing unnecessary comments by some individuals in ONELGA.
A source whose identity remains unknown told Gist Reporters that Hon. Shedrack in his capacity as a Commissioner has failed to perform his duties to standard, adding that the state ministry for power under his watch has in the last 4years recorded zero productivity also highlighted that the people of Port Harcourt had cried out countless number of times on the state of poor electricity supplies to there area which led to a protest in some part of Port Harcourt.
While the reason why the former commissioner was sacked has yet remained uncertain to the people even as the governor himself is yet to release an official statement in that regard.
Majority have long spread rumors on why the former commissioner was sacked which many narrowed it down to the call by the concerned youths to Governor Wike to appoint Prince Isaac Umejuru into his cabinet as a Commissioner. However, many still believes it was due to his none activness and laxity on duty warranted his sack.
A Facebook user “Achu Smart” took to his Facebook page to call on those calling on the governor to include Hon. Umejuru into his cabinet to remain calm even as such a Clarion call is a commendable one but should henceforth, be put to an end saying that whatever be the will of God will surely be done and at the right time.
He however did not fail to state how proud he is to call Prince Isaac Umejuru his closet ally. In his words “I am proud to call him (Prince Isaac Umejuru) my closet ally” said that the governor had sometime ago commended Umejuru for his love and commitment to the party and it’s leadership at large.

While some ONELGA citizens has condemned the sack of there brother by Wike without any formal statement as to what led to his sack, the opposition in the state is not left out as they insist the sack of the former commissioner only created the awareness that such a person is occupying such a position in the state but has never been heard of. Some claim that his functions as a Commissioner was long hijacked from him by the governor same as many other serving commissioners in the state.
While we await on the official statement of Governor Wike, it will be wise to remain calm so as not to be accused of instigating unnecessary media violence.
