Rivers state Government has said the demolished premises of the Prodest hotel in the state has been converted to primary school.
The Commissioner for Information and Communications, Paulinus Nsirim, who disclosed this on Wednesday said Governor Nyesom Wike gave the approval for school to be built at the location.
“Having demolished that hotel, Governor Wike has approved that a primary school be constructed at that location to serve Rivers people. This is what a responsive government will do.
“Eleme people are happy with the demolition. In several publications they made after the demolition, they have declared that Prodest Hotel is a criminal hideout and a den for cultists.
“They added that Prodest Hotel is a centre for gun-running by the wanted People’s Democratic Party youth leader. It was his criminal tendencies that emboldened him to unleash mayhem on state officials when the hotel manager invited him.
“These are facts that the political analysts have turned away from. They have allowed their political enmity with Governor Wike to override their objective judgment,” he said.
Nsirim flayed critics who condemned the action of the Governor.
