Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike says he will leave office on May 29 as a fulfilled man, having positively impacted the state’s 23 local government areas.
The governor charged the incoming administration with stewardship.
Mr Wike made the statement on Sunday at All Saints Anglican Cathedral in Rumuokwurushi, Obio/Akpor local government area of the state, during a Thanksgiving Service organized by the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Only a blind man or an enemy of the state, according to Mr Wike, would fail to acknowledge the extent of equitable infrastructure spread across the state.
“If your politics are not for your people’s interests, you have a problem; the electorate is now wiser; you must be ready to submit a full’report card’ to your people by 2027 if you want to continue in politics.”
The governor also attributed the party’s election victory to demonstrable effects in the areas of good administration and gender balance.
He said that females were serving as Vice-Chairmen in each of the 23 local government areas, with at least 5 female ward councillors in each area, as well as a small number of female Senators and Members-elect.
The governor warned the Governor-elect, Siminialayi Fubara, and his staff not to be distracted by the opposition, which is “determined to drag them before the tribunal.”
