Gov Wike should sack Tonye Briggs President, CONE

The National President of Coalition of Nigeria Entertainers lashes out at Mrs Tonye Briggs-Onyide for maladministration.

The President of CONE, Mr Kanule Nwiya who is popularly known as Bishop of Comedy pointed out several reasons why the honourable commissioner & Permanent Secretary for Culture & Tourism Ministry should be sacked.

While talking to newsmen in Port-Harcourt, Mr Kanule Nwiya said the Rivers State commissioner for Culture & Tourism is not professional and her un-professionalism led to the reasons why the recently held AMMA Award was a failure in Port-Harcourt.

The President of CONE also added by saying that the commissioner was the reason why the Rivers Carnival was cancelled, the rivers carnival which was the only way River indigenes showcase their culture to the world was cancelled because her administration can’t advice the Governor on the importance of the Carnival.

According to the President of CONE, the major reason why the honourable commissioner should be sacked is the recent announcement by the ministry saying all entertainment and hospitality event organizers must approach the ministry & the ministry must approve their event before you publicize it.

The Honourable Commissioner of Culture & Tourism, Mrs Tonye Briggs-Onyide has been suspended some months back the Governor of Rivers State, Gov Nyesom Wike.
