Wike To NDDC: You Are Playing Politics With Rivers Development


Rivers State governor, Chief Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike, has accused the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) of playing politics with the development of the state.

This is as the Peoples  Democratic Party (PDP) caucus  of the National Assembly has endorsed Wike for a second term as governor of the state.

Speaking  during the commissioning of Ulakwo II-Afara-Nihi Road in Etche local government area of the state, Wike warned the Managing Director of NDDC against taking further steps to undermine development of Rivers State as the people will resist him.

While assuring Etche people  that he will continue to execute people oriented projects to cater for their developmental needs, the governor said in the next five weeks, his administration will commission two
other roads in Etche and flag off a road.

In his speech while commissioning the road, Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu declared that the endorsement is a fallout of Wike’s excellent performance, which has transformed Rivers State.

Ekweremadu said, “If you take the statistics and look at what Governor Wike has done in two years , I can safely say that he has done more than all APC governors put together.”

He stated that the governor has changed the story of Rivers State from a state where  insecurity was rife eight years ago, to the centre of development projects in the country.

The deputy senate president said, “A lot more will still happen over the next six years of Governor Wike’s leadership. Governor Wike is creating economic corridors which will enhance economic development.
More of Wike will transform Nigeria.”

He expressed satisfaction  with the statewide  execution of projects by Governor Wike, saying that the sustained commissioning of projects across Rivers State  in the last three weeks indicate that the governor  is a true example  of good governance.
