We Are Not Afraid To Fight – Wike



Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has said although he is not afraid to fight, members of the opposition should take advantage of the olive branch he extended to them for the development of the state.

Wike, who made the call yesterday when the Governing Council of the Rivers State University, paid him a congratulatory visit at Government House, Port Harcourt, said that the state needs peace and security for rapid growth.

The governor said: “We want everybody to take advantage of the Olive Branch,  if they love the state. We are not afraid of fight, but we want everyone to join us to work for the development of the state.

“The state is uppermost on our mind. I will do everything  possible to promote the peace of the state “.

He stated that anyone who loves the state should be interested in its development and progress.

“We thank God that all the political tension is behind us. You cannot govern a state when it is not peaceful. We continue to reiterate the need for peace. We want total peace and reconciliation.”

The governor, who urged the Rivers State University to take measures  to check cultism in the Institution, advised  the university to submit names of cultists to the state government for necessary action.

Wike however approved immediate commencement of employment process at the university.

He stated that the state government will implement  the de-centralization of the Rivers State University,  with the construction of the Ahoada Campus to be started soon.

Speaking during the visit, Pro-Chancellor of the Rivers State University,  Justice Iche Ndu said the re-election of the governor is well deserved as it flows from the people of the state.

Ndu decried the violence  that greeted the election circle and called on the political class to cooperate with Wike to promote peace in the state.

He implored the Rivers State Governor to invite elders, statesman,  church leaders and mediators to take over the peace building process.

The Pro-Chancellor urged the governor to approve the employment  of new academic and non academic staff for the institution.
