“I believe that it is a privilege my people have given me the opportunity to contribute to the rapid development of the state.
“I have the passion and love for my people . That is why we are doing what we are doing. I will give everything to Rivers State, because the state has given me that I need in life”.
The governor stated that he is a complete Rivers man with no lineage outside the state, hence he is under obligation to make the state great.
He said: “If you check, Everything in me is Rivers. My wife is Rivers, my father is Rivers, my mother is Rivers and my grand parents are Rivers. Therefore, I have no place other than Rivers State. If I don’t countribute to making Rivers State beautiful, who’s going to do it?”
