Paul Obiajunwo, Port Harcourt
Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio  has endorsed  the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike for a second  term, saying that the state needs  his developmental  prowess to be completely  repositioned.
He described Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike of Rivers State as the best performing governor in the country.
Commissioning the completed Kpopie-Bodo Road in Gokana Local Government Area on Monday, Senator Akpabio  expressed gratitude  to God for allowing him to witness another governor  in the Niger Delta  who believes  in profound development.
He commended Governor Wike  for diligently constructing the Kpopie-Bodo Road, which has given the people of the area a sense of belonging.
He said: “From the Pictures I have seen here, I wonder how you people  lived before Nyesom Wike  became governor.  Oh my people, you must have suffered. This road will help revive the economy of the area”.
He said that   by creating  access to communities of Gokana, Governor Wike  has empowered them and given them the leverage to grow.
In his remarks, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike said that his administration  has fulfilled the promise it made to Gokana people, without giving excuses.
He regretted that the former Works Commissioner  under the Amaechi  administration, Mr Victor Giadom, who hails from Gokana Local Government Area  allowed a project under his supervision  to be abandoned.
He noted that Senate Minority Leader was invited to commission  the project because he was one of the pillars of support during the electioneering  period.
He stated that he will continue to deliver  democracy  dividends  to the people of the state.
Commissioner  of Works, Iheanyichuwu Bathuel said that  Kpopie-Bodo Road which is about 10kilometres has been  fitted with street lights.
Secretary  to Rivers State Government, Sir Kenneth Kobani lauded Governor Wike for his commitment to the development  of Ogoni land.
He assured  the governor of the support  of Ogoni people in his future political  endeavours.
Highpoint of the occasion was conferment  of a chieftaincy title on Governor Wike  by the Gokana Traditional Rulers Council.
