2019: Rivers Professionals Endorse Governor Wike for Re-Election

Rivers Professionals under the aegis of Rivers Professionals for  Wike (RIVPROW) have endorsed Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike for a second term.

The Rivers Professionals announced their endorsement of Governor Wike during their  solidarity visit to the Rivers State Governor at the  Government House Port Harcourt on Wednesday.

Leader of RIVPROW, Mr Enemi Alabo George said that professionals  in the state are satisfied with the performance of Governor Wike, hence their decision to support his re-election.

He said: "As Professionals, we subscribe to your vision. We are  willing to work for the success of the New Rivers Vision.

"You were elected by Rivers people and you have proved to be a good governor. Professionals  have resolved that they want to  be part of the process and to add value."

He added that the professionals are ever ready  to make their contributions to ensure that Governor Wike continues to succeed in the state.

George stated that the policies of Governor Wike have led to the growth of the economy of the state and the emergence of growing small and medium sized businesses.

Responding, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike charged professionals  to be directly involved in politics in order to shape the direction of the society.

He said it is unwise for professionals  to allow hooligans to hijack the governance structure, noting that the society will suffer for professionals staying away from politics.

"Professionals  cannot give their destiny to those who don't  know anything.  Professionals  must show interest in politics to churn out quality policies.

"Don't be afraid.  You have the tools to make contributions for the development of the society. Don't hand over Nigeria to hooligans ", he said.

The governor challenged  Rivers people who are well-to-do to contribute their quota to the growth of the state.  He wondered why some politicians continue to fight the administration instead of attracting development to the state.

"When I talk about Rivers people, I mean indigenes of Rivers State, people born in Rivers State and people who live and do business in Rivers State. 

"If they allow the ports  to work, jobs will be created in the state. If the airport is working, more jobs will also be created", he said.

He berated the APC Federal Government for failing the country, noting that the administration only intimidates Nigerians with insecurity.

He assured Rivers Professionals that his administration will work with them by creating more employment opportunities for them.  He said that the State Government will, in the coming weeks , employ 7000 professionals  into the State Civil Service and 14000 teachers into the State Education Sector.

Highpoint of the solidarity visit  was the presentation of the  Communique endorsing Governor Wike by an official of RIVPROW, Golden Tamuno. The group also presented a condolence letter to Governor Wike through the Secretary, Prince Nyekwere.

Goodwill messages were delivered by  the Deputy Governor, Dr Ipalibo Harry Banigo, Head of Service, Rufus Godwins and Commissioner of Sports, Boma Iyaye.
