Akpabio Endorses Gov Wike for Second Term Says He is The Best Governor in the Country

For accomplishing so much in less than two years in office, the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has en­dorsed the Rivers State Governor, Barr. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, for another term in office.
Senator Akpabio said that he is supporting Wike for another term because Rivers State needs his wealth of experience in devel­opment for total transformation.

He described Governor Wike as the best performing governor in the country.
Commissioning the complet­ed Kpopie-Bodo Road in Gokana Local Government Area on Mon­day, Senator Akpabio expressed gratitude to God for allowing him to witness another governor in the Niger Delta who believes in pro­found development.
He commended Governor Wike for diligently constructing the Kpopie-Bodo Road, which has given the people of the area a sense of belonging.
He said: “From the pictures I have seen here, I wonder how you people lived before Nyesom Wike became governor. Oh my people, you must have suffered. This road will help revive the economy of the area”.
He said that by creating ac­cess to the communities of Goka­na, Governor Wike has empow­ered them and given them the leverage to grow.
In his remarks, Governor Wike said that his administration has fulfilled the promise it made to Gokana people, without giving excuses.
He regretted that the former Works Commissioner under the Amaechi administration, Mr Vic­tor Giadom, who hails from Go­kana Local Government Area, allowed a project under his su­pervision to be abandoned.
He noted that the Senate Mi­nority Leader was invited to com­mission the project because he was one of the pillars of support during the electioneering period.
Wike affirmed stated that he will continue to deliver democra­cy dividends to the people of the state.
The Commissioner of Works, Iheanyichuku Bathuel, said that Kpopie-Bodo Road which is about 10 kilometres, has been fitted with street lights.
The Secretary to Rivers State Government, Sir Kenneth Koba­ni, lauded Governor Wike for his commitment to the development of Ogoni land.
He assured the governor of the support of Ogoni people in his future political endeavours. The highpoint of the occasion was the conferment of a chieftaincy ti­tle on Governor Wike by the Go­kana Traditional Rulers Council.
Meanwhile, Wike has asserted the formation of a new cult group by a former governor of the state to create security crisis in the state.
Governor Wike revealed this while speaking at the commission­ing of the Kpopie-Bodo Road in Gokana Local Government Area on Monday as part of activities to commemorate two years anniver­sary of his administration. He said the new cult group formed by the former governor has been chris­tened “New Rivers Cult Group.”
The governor while alerting the security agencies about the new group, said they should call the former governor to order as the new cult group would be re­sisted by the law abiding people of the state.
He revealed that the former governor inaugurated the cult group at a private residence in Woji area of Port Harcourt, after which he distributed N500, 000 to each of the 23 local government areas.
He noted that the new cult group has two coordinators who have been mobilised by the for­mer governor.
He said one of the coordina­tors was currently standing trial for murder.
Gov. Wike said: “Let me alert Nigerians. I am only informing Nigerians and security agencies of the crime against Rivers State by the former governor. We have successfully concluded the state amnesty programme for cultists in the state, but the former gover­nor has set up another cult group.”
Wike explained that the for­mer governor assured members of his new cult group that they will receive security protection, adding that the new cult group members have been armed for the 2019 general elections.
“I am shouting for the securi­ty agencies to hear us. Let heaven hear us. Let nobody allow his son to be used. No amount of cult re­cruitment can intimidate us. I am calling on the security agencies to call the former governor to order.”
