• Experience has shown that persons imposed don’t stay loyal forever – Wike

 

Rivers State Governor,  Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has counselled all his political associates seeking to run for Office of Governor of Rivers State, to seek the support of Rivers people,  as he will not impose any Governor on the people of Rivers State.

 

Speaking during a solidarity visit by the leaders and people of Oyigbo Local Government Area on Saturday at the Government House Port Harcourt,  Governor Wike said all those hoping on him for imposition will be disappointed.

He said: “I am not going to impose anyone on Rivers State as their next Governor of Rivers State. Anyone who wants to be Governor of Rivers in 2023 should go and try.

 

“All those hoping on me, I want to disappoint you. I am an experienced politician,  I have seen it all. There is nobody that you will make a Governor that will remain loyal to you.”

Governor Wike added that all ethnic nationalities of Rivers State have the right to vie for the Governorship of Rivers State,  noting that Oyigbo people should not be intimidated by any other ethnic group.

He said: “Nobody dashes power. You have to break the hand holding the power to collect it. Everyone is equal in this  State. You need other people to be Governor.

 

“The next Governor of Rivers State will not emerge on the basis of ethnic Nationality. The next Governor will be someone who can carry  everyone along.”

Speaking further, Governor Wike said that there will be no automatic ticket for any Local Government Chairman for the second term.

 

 

He said that the emergence of any Local Government Chairman for the second term will be on the strength of his performance and acceptance.

 

The Governor added that the emerging Local Government Councils must accommodate women.

Governor Wike announced that his administration will dualise the Oyigbo-Afam as a major encouragement to the Oyigbo people to defend their votes in subsequent elections.

He also stated that his administration will construct a General Hospital in Oyigbo to improve access to quality healthcare in the area.

He announced an N50million endowment fund for the daughter of a PDP Agent killed by soldiers during the 2019 General Election.

 

Earlier,  Eze Mike Nwaji who spoke on behalf of Oyigbo people praised the Rivers State Governor for his projects in the area.

He urged the Rivers State Governor to dualise the Oyigbo-Afam road to improve the economy of the area. He also called on the Rivers State Governor to develop a Hospital for the health needs of the people.
