Sokoto State governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has described his Rivers State counterpart, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, as a promise keeper who is committed to the development of the state.
Tambuwal disclosed this yesterday while commissioning the College of Medical Sciences of the Rivers State University, Port Harcourt, which was initiated and constructed by the Wike led administration.
He said, “I am tempted to recommend Governor Wike so highly. He is the ‘Ekwueme of Rivers State’. It only takes a leader with a vision, passion and commitment to come up with this idea and implement it”.
The Sokoto State governor stated that no investment is greater than investments in the area of education, pointing out that the Rivers State governor deserves praises.
Tambuwal, who lauded Wike for projects that are tailored to the needs of Rivers, said such projects will enhance the development of the state.
He said, “The projects are tailored along the needs of the people Rivers State. This is a trend in governance to deliver projects based on the needs of the people.”
The Sokoto State governor stated that posterity will vindicate Wike and urged leaders to focus on development and deemphasise issues that generate disunity.
Earlier in his speech, Rivers State governor, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, berated the minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, for failing to attract a single project to the state and resorting to falsehood on the execution of projects in the state.
Wike stated that it is unfortunate that former Rivers State governor, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi will lie about projects delivered by the present administration to improve the living condition of the people.
The governor said, “There are several projects which were initiated, constructed and commissioned by my administration. Amaechi didn’t have meaningful projects, that is why he had no projects to commission. We have meaningful projects and we will continue to commission them.
“Projects like Sakpenwa-Bori Road, National Industrial Court, Port Harcourt Pleasure Park, Rivers State Ecumenical Centre, Federal High Court Complex, Court of Appeal, Igwuruta-Chokocho, College of Medical Sciences building, Elelenwo-Akpajo, Traditional Rulers Secretariat, Rumuokoro Market and Park, Bonny-Bille-Nembe Jetty, Government Secondary School, Onne, Government Girls Secondary School, Rumuokwuta and several others were the brainchild of this administration.
“Our projects have overwhelmed them, everyday they are worried.
We are here to contribute our efforts to the development of Rivers State.”
