Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has stated that he will hand over to his successor on May 29 as a fulfilled man.
Wike who was speaking at a Thanksgiving Service organized by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) state chapter on Sunday at All Saints Anglican Cathedral in Rumuokwurushi, Obio/Akpor local government area of the state, insisted that only a blind man or an enemy of the state would deny the extent of equitable infrastructure spread across the 23 local government areas of the state.
“If your politics is not about the interest of your people, then you have a problem; the electorates are now wiser, you must be ready to present a full ‘report card’ to your people by 2027 if you must continue in politics”
The governor urged the Governor-elect, Siminialayi Fubara, and his team not to be distracted by the opposition, which is “determined to drag them before the tribunal.”
Wike also stated that the party was able to win the gubernatorial election due to demonstrable impacts in the areas of good governance and gender balance.
He said gender balance was evident in his government. There were female Vice-Chairmen in each of the 23 local government areas, as well as at least 5 female ward councilors in each area and a handful of female Senators and Members-elect.
