Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers, says residents of the state won’t support any governorship hopeful with no agenda.

The governor said this on Wednesday at the inauguration of the remodelled Waterlines House in Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers.

The event was attended by Idris Ibrahim, former governor of Kogi state.

Wike said there are people seeking to become governor of the state but have no plan for development.

“I thank all Rivers people for the support you have given us and the prayers you are offering on our behalf. I will continue to let you know that we will not let you down. We will continue to do the best for Rivers and that is why we also tell you to listen to us. We will tell you those to vote for because I will tell you who is who,” he said.

“There are those who just want to be governor, but they have no agenda. And in any case, why will you change a winning team that has given you all these? I will not allow this state to go astray to fall into the hands of armed robbers.”

Wike said he will give an account of his stewardship to the state by listing his achievements.

“I will give accounts and that account I am going to give is that in Rivers state you gave me the opportunity — see what I have done. I have defended Rivers state. I have challenged the country in so many things that were against the interest of this state. I will never sell this state for one Kobo.

“Time will come when we will present a report card — local government by local government. I am sure in the next few months we will be in Kalabari to commission the Trans-Kalabari road which has never happened.

“From Saakpenwa to Kono is about 31 kilometres. In the next few months, we will be there to commission that road that has opened the entire Ogoni area, that has opened Bori as a city.”
