A socio-cultural group, Ogbakor Ichie, Lagos State branch has commended Governor Nyesom Wike for restoring the entitlements and benefits of former governor of the state, sir Celestine Omehia.
The president of the association, Mr. Charles Anele gave the commendation when the African global development for drastic change AGDDC paid them a visit, describing Governor Wike as a statesman.
Anele said Wike was right in his decision because Omehia as a former governor worked and took decisions on behalf of the state and initiated projects for the development of the state.
He thereby urged the governor to also put right other injustices in the state such as the marginalisation of Ichie and Omuma local governments in appointments, stressing that Ichie local government being the second largest oil producing area in the state, deserves a better deal in the distribution of social amenities and projects.
Anele, however, implored the governor to review the school to land programmes in Egbeke and Nwuba, as it is a veritable tool for creating employment for the youths in the state.
Also speaking, the AGDDC President, Prince Dan Mbachi said that Wike showed an attribute of a true statesman by restoring Omehia’s status.
He said for equity and justice the state election tribunal, which was moved to Abuja, should be returned to the state as it is wrong for tribunal to be sitting far away from where the elections took place.
He praised Wike for the doing a good job of returning the state to its enviable position within a short period of assuming office.
He however urged Rivers state indigenes to support and work with the state government to achieve the laudable programmes of Wike’s administration.
