Former Plateau State governor, Senator Jonah Jang, has declared that it is only the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) than can redeem Nigeria, going by the excellent performances of Rivers State governor, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wike and other PDP governors.
Jang who made the declaration yesterday while commissioning 24 three-bedroom flats for civil servants in Port Harcourt, said projects are only being commissioned in PDP controlled states.
He lauded Wike for transforming the landscape of Rivers State with new projects, noting that Port Harcourt is regaining her garden city status.
Jang said, “What our governors are doing, particularly what Governor Wike is doing, you cannot but bring PDP back to transform the country. There is no sign that anything new will happen. If they have not done anything new in three years, they cannot do it in the campaign year.”
He noted that there are no new projects being commissioned in All Progressives Congress (APC) controlled states because they are not interested in the welfare of their people.
In his address, Rivers State governor, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, declared that his administration will continue to give priority attention to the welfare of civil servants, saying, “This is a day for workers. This is a direct project meant for the workers of Rivers State who are the engine room of this administration.
“As our civil servants inhabit this wonderful estate, they must take steps to keep it clean. We will appoint a facility manager, but the payment will be borne by the state government and the occupants.”
Wike, who declared that the state government will flag off the construction of Labour House on June 29, 2018, said, “We are interested in workers welfare. Our commitment is to ensure that we create the right environment for workers to perform their roles.”
Chairman of Nigerian Labour Congress, Rivers State Council, Comrade Beatrice Otubo, thanked the Rivers State governor for being workers friendly and assured the governor of the support of the workers.
