Rivers States Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike says despite attempts by agents of the Federal Government to cripple his administration from the onset, he has not disappointed Rivers’ people and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the governance of the State.
Governor Wike said he could walk around the entire Rivers State today without security because his administration and the PDP have fulfilled their promises to transform the State for the benefit of all.
He made this assertion at the inauguration of the ultramodern Government House clinic and Administrative Building in Port Harcourt.
“I have not disappointed the people of Rivers State and I have not disappointed the party that gave me the privilege to contribute my own quarter to the development of the State. But for politics, I don’t think there will be a need for any Rivers man or woman to think of any other party.”
The Rivers State governor explained that immediately he took over the realm of power in 2015, he was buffeted from all sides as the Federal Government unleashed insidious forces whose primary objective was to cripple his administration.
Governor recalled how his election was nullified by the tribunal and the Court of Appeal. But through divine providence, the Supreme Court upturned their verdict and reaffirmed him the winner of the 2015 governorship election.
He also narrated how the National Assembly and State House of Assembly elections were also nullified and fresh election ordered, but fortunately, the PDP still emerged victoriously.
“I know what we passed through in the hands of the ruling government. No State government has been harassed like Rivers State government, not one, but I will never give up. I will continue to do what I think is for the best interest of the people of Rivers State because they gave me the privilege.”
