Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has come out to say that his government belongs to all Rivers people, and not a specific group in the state.
He said this during a recent courtesy visit by Amayanabo of Wakrike Kingdom, Okrika and Prominent Chiefs of Okrika.
According to him, the main objective of his government is to promote the interest of Rivers State.
His words, “This Government is not a Government of you are from here or there. My Government is a Government of Rivers State. It is not a Government of a particular place.
“Anything that will promote the interest of Rivers State is what I will do. You can be my sister state, if you want to take what belongs to Rivers State, I will not agree. I will not sell Rivers State for any cost. Let’s be our brother’s keeper.”
Unfortunately, one of our states is gone to enemies. But God will help us.
“For us who are from Rivers State, we should know that there will be an attack on us because the enemy has entered our territory. They will attack us, but with your prayer, Rivers State will prevail.”
“The role you played during the last elections, showed that when you give your support, you give your support. People should be known for something.
“If you give your word, you give your word. In all my political career, I have seen that when Okrika people say they want to do something, they will do it. You are different and I commend you.”
