RIWA (RIVERS WOMEN) WANT A RIVERINE GOVERNOR IN 2019



Women across the 23 local government areas of Rivers State are calling for a riverine governor in 2019, to succeed Nyesom Wike of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), since governors from the upland part would have governed the state for 20 unbroken years.


The women, under the aegis of Rivers Women Alliance (RIWA), a non-political and non-governmental organization, with a view of total chatter for united Rivers society, made the call yesterday at a news conference in Port Harcourt.

RIWA, through its Coordinator, Ibiba Omotoso, who was accompanied by the group’s Secretary, Myne Wilfred, and many Rivers women, including non-indigenes, indicated that it was striving for even development of the crude oil and gas-rich state, as well as to ensure justice, equity and fairness.
