·Gives cars, lands to bishops
The outgoing governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, seems to read the mind of most persons. He has responded even before they asked him.
He has said he will not run from Rivers State. He said he is not afraid of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Wike made the remarks at the thanksgiving ceremony to mark the end of his eight years as governor.
The Rivers State governor declared that he would not be leaving the State, as he said he is not afraid of the EFCC.
“I am not running to anywhere. I will be here, of course, I know EFCC will not come. If they come, they have so much to go around and see. And they will say they are tired. They are watching everything we are doing. I am not afraid.”
The governor used the occasion to redeem the Rivers State government pledge to gift the Bishops of Ogoni, Okrika and Niger Delta dioceses vehicles. He also directed the bishops to go to the Ministry of Land on Monday and sign for Certificate of Occupancy for their private residence.
Earlier in his sermon, the Archbishop, Niger Delta Ecclesiastical Province/ Bishop, Diocese of Ikwerre, Most Rev Blessing C. Enyindah, commended governor Wike for successfully governing and transforming the State in the last eight years.
He advised Fubara to run an inclusive administration, ask for God’s wisdom in decision making and to stand firm for what is in the best interest of the State.
