Rivers State Deputy Governor, Dr. Ipalibo Harry Banigo has commended the State Executive, Nyesom Wike for releasing the sum of four hundred million Naira to resettle the displaced people of Ekporo Community in Eleme Local Government Area of the State.
In a statement from the Government House in Port Harcourt, Dr. Banigo described Governor Wike has a compassionate leader who is desirous to give the Rivers people a new lease of life.
The Deputy Governor who is also the Chairman of the State Boundary Commission expressed joy that Governor Wike’s intervention has brought peace between the Ekporo people and their neighbours who were hitherto engaged in communal crisis over land disputes and were displaced from their community about eight years ago, during the tenure of the immediate past APC Administration.
Dr. Banigo expressed regrets about statements made by the factional spokesman of the APC and a former, Federal law maker, Ogbonna Nwuke in his attempt to disparage and play down the noble gesture of the best performing Governor in Nigeria.
According to her no amount of black mail and false propaganda can dent the ever rising profile of Governor Wike, who have continued to carry out top notch developmental projects across the state even in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
She urged the Rivers people, especially the youths to remain peaceful at all times and continue to support the Nyesom Ezenwo Wike led administration to attract more developmental projects.
