From: TONY JOHN, Port Harcourt
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has assured the Christian community that he would sustain the delivery of democracy dividends in the state.
Speaking during a courtesy visit by the Archbishop of Anglican Diocese, Niger Delta Province, Most Rev Ignatius Kattey at the Government House, Port Harcourt yesterday, Governor Wike said he would never disappoint Christians in his service to the state.
He said: “We will never disappoint Christians. I will continue to deliver quality projects that will improve the living condition of the people.
“We will continue to complete projects inherited from previous administrations, as long as such projects will impact positively on the lives of the people.
“Part of the problem we have are the number of abandoned projects, which are scattered everywhere. When you complete a project, someone comes up to say that project was 99 percent completed, such criticisms will not deter us”.
The governor reiterated that he would continue to partner with the church. He said that the church helped to enthrone the administration through prayers and unflinching support.
“Whatever promise I have made to the church will be fulfilled”, he said.
Speaking further, the governor said that he would meet with Christian leaders to fashion out ways to put the State Ecumenical Centre to regular use.
Earlier, the Archbishop of Niger Delta Province, Most Rev Ignatius Kattey commended the governor for his achievements over the last two years.
“We commend the governor for his achievements. We are proud of your landmark achievements. I want to thank the Governor for his statesmanship in governance.”
