Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has banned Nightclubs and prostitution in the state.
Wike issued the order on Saturday during his New Yesr broadcast in Port Harcourt, prohibiting nightclub activities including as nighttime trading and street prostitution, notably along Abacha Road and neighboring areas, particularly in the Casablanca area.
According to Wike, the move will “Stop the harmful effects of this depraved activities on the moral development of the children and society at large.”
However, it remains unclear how long the ban will last, but certainly, the Governor has less than two years left in office.
Wike further ordered state security agents to apprehend and prosecute anyone who tries to break the prohibition. He stated that a taskforce would be formed to this end.
After the general elections in 2023, Governor Wike’s term will come to an end.Click here to give us five stars rating!
