Wife of the Rivers State Governor , Justice Eberechi Suzzette Nyesom-Wike has stated that RivEthics Clubs will be established   in Secondary Schools  across the state with the objective  of guiding children to be responsible   citizens .

Speaking  at the Government House , Port Harcourt yesterday  when she granted  audience  to the Women  of the Diocese of Evo of the Anglican Church, Justice Nyesom-Wike said that the first RivEthics Club will be established  at the Archdeacon Crowther Memorial Grammar School  (ACMGS) , Elelenwo in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area .
She said: “A RivEthics Club will be established  in  ACMGS .  We also plan to replicate it across  other schools .
“The  idea is to guide our children,  to strengthen them to boost their confidence and to make them to abstain from joining  cults. We are working  to ensure that they become responsible citizens “.
The Governor’s Wife noted that teachers of the pilot school would be trained by RivEthics on how to impact positive values on the students.
She informed that RivEthics and Old Students of ACMGS  have resolved to open accounts for all the students of ACMGS to encourage  the students to imbibe a saving culture that will support their pursuit of education.
According to her: “The account  is to encourage  the students to start saving for their future .”
She urged other old students associations to take steps to invest in their respective  schools, pointing out  that such investments will help in developing  the state .
Justice Nyesom-Wike  said that early marriage  should be discouraged as it leads to early widowhood, which breeds a circle of poverty .
Earlier , the Wife of the Bishop of Anglican Diocese of Evo , Mrs Chinyere Ordu  lauded the Justice Nyesom-Wike for her commitment  to  the better living standard for women and children .
She invited the Wife of the Rivers State Governor to the Women’s Conference of the Diocese of Evo holding between December 7 and 11. She said  the  Wife of the Governor  would serve as a guest speaker at the conference.
