Wike Represents Nigeria’s New Generation of Leaders, Says Maku


The National Secretary  of  All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Mr. Labaran Maku, has declared that Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, represents Nigeria’s  new generation of leaders driving the country towards prosperity and development.

 This  is as the governor stated that he is motivated  to deliver  more pro-people   projects across Rivers State  by the enthusiastic  applause  he gets each time he embarks on projects inspection.

Both leaders spoke at the weekend after they embarked on joint inspection of projects in Port Harcourt City Local Government Area , Obio/Akpor Local Government Area and  Ikwerre Local Government Area.

Labaran Maku, a former Minister of Information said Wike’s  legendary  projects delivery is a proof that the people stand to benefit  whenever  they elect well equipped  leaders.

 He said: “This is what we want. A generation  of leaders who are committed to making  more progress in the direction of prosperity and development.

“This is what you  get when you have the right people in place who have the energy, the intellectual wherewithal and the commitment  to drive development.”

The APGA National Secretary  noted that the team will be coming back to Rivers State to further understudy  the  development  mode of Wike, so as to export same as an example of good governance.

Maku said: “I am not surprised that  Wike is performing. At the Federal Executive Council, I knew him to be very serious with a noble heart. As Governor of Rivers State, we have  observed with happiness, the kind of seriousness  he has brought  to  governance.”

In an interview, Wike said he insists on timelines for the completion of projects because of the need  to avoid abandoned projects.

He said: “The happiness  of the people  motivates me to work harder. Their response  each time we go out for project inspection  is a sign that they are happy with what we are doing.

“I will continue to work promote  and defend  the interest of our state. I will continue to fulfill all promises I made to the people,” he said.

The governor said never again  would funds meant for the development  of  Rivers State  be used to sponsor  the election  of  some persons.

The inspection witnessed hundreds of  residents trooping out to celebrate Wike during the project inspection.

Some of the projects inspected by Wike and Labaran Maku on Saturday include: Rukpokwu Market road, Rumuokparali road, Tam David West Boulevard, Mother and Child Hospital in NAF base, Government Girls Secondary School, Rumuokwuta, Port Harcourt Pleasure Park, Second Nkpogu//LNG Road and Bridge and Ogbunabali/Land Reclamation project.
