Governor Wike reaffirmed that he will continue to render quality service to the people of Rivers State who deemed him worthy to be re-elected into office for a second tenure.
The governor stated this when the Group Managing Director of DAAR Communication Plc (AIT), Mr. Tony Akiotu led a delegation to present a letter of nomination to him as the DAAR Man of the Year 2021 Award at Government House, Port Harcourt on Tuesday.
He noted that though this is his second tenure, he will not relent in delivering quality projects to the people of the State.
According to him, beginning from the first week of December, his administration will commence another round of commissioning and flagging off of projects across the entire State.
“We believe from the first week of December, we will start another round of commissioning and flagging off of projects. You can be assured that no project will be left abandoned. We are not here to create problem for our successor,” he said.
“We are here to make things easier, even though we didn’t find it easy when we came. But that does not mean that we will do the same thing. Thank you for honouring us and remembering the little quota we have contributed towards the development of the State and Nigeria in general.”
Governor Wike, urged the media not to politicise conferring award on political office holders.
He observed that sometimes when awards are conferred on people, even the givers of such awards find it difficult to justify them.
“We can challenge anybody of what we have done to the glory of God. It is there for the eyes to see. It is not for us to tell you. We want to thank and continue to impress on you, please when you give award to people, try to encourage them to work more.”
Governor Wike said the award is for the people of the State, and he dedicated it to the glory of God, who has been his bulwark.
