President of South South Youth Initiative, SSYI, Saviour Imeabe has called for the removal of Hon. Desmond Akawor as chairman of the state Palliative Committee.
Imeabe made the call in a chat with journalists in Port Harcourt on Friday.
According to him, it is wrong for Akawor who is the state chairman of the PDP to head such a committee, adding that clerics should be included in the committee to ensure accountability.
He advised the Governor to appoint another person to chair the committee if the palliatives are truly for Rivers eople.
The committee is saddled with the responsibilty of ensuring that 16,000 bags of rice amongst other items are distributed to Rivers people.
