Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has assured that no part of the state will be discriminated against in his strategic development of the state.
Speaking on Monday when the Prelate of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Dr Samuel Kanu Uche visited him, Governor Wike said he considered himself as a father of all, irrespective of the different political leanings of the people.
He noted that the all-encompassing development will be felt across Rivers State as every community will feel the impact of quality governance.
Governor Wike said, “the entire Rivers State is my constituency. I am the governor of everybody in the state. Therefore, I will work towards enhancing development in all parts of the state.”
The governor said though he inherited unpaid salaries, pensions and backlog of financial commitments, he has been able to clear and place the state on the path of growth.
He said the completion of critical ongoing projects will continue to improve the living condition of the people.
In his remarks, Prelate of Methodist Church of Nigeria, Dr Samuel Kanu Uche commended Governor Wike for his numerous development projects, stressing that the projects must be sustained all through his tenure.
He urged the governor to replicate the performance he exhibited as Minister of State for Education, noting that Rivers people should experience his commitment to development.
Dr Uche urged Governor Wike to develop alternative sources of wealth for the state by expanding tourism and fishery. He called on the governor to enhance his fight against insecurity and cultism to attract more investors and visitors to the state.
He said that there were states that are inclined to specific individuals, as such no matter the number of elections conducted, such individuals will emerge victorious. He noted that Rivers State is one of such state, pointing out that there is no reason why the political class should distract a performing governor.
The Prelate later offered special prayers for the governor, his deputy, Dr Ipalibo Harry Banigo and the state government.
