Wike prohibits nightclubs and prostitution in Port Harcourt.
NewsReport gathered that Nyesom Wike, the Governor of Rivers State, has banned nightclubs and prostitution in the state.
Wike issued the order on Saturday during his New Year broadcast in Port Harcourt, prohibiting nightclub activities including nocturnal trading and street prostitution, notably along Abacha Road and neighboring areas, particularly in the Casablanca area.
The measure will “stop the detrimental repercussions of these wicked practices on the moral development of children and society at large,” according to Wike.
However, it is unknown how long the prohibition will stay; the Governor has fewer than two years remaining in office, after all.
