Rivers govt to investors: our state is safe

Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Mr. Paulinus Nsirim, has said the state is safe for investors.

He urged residents to shun detractors de-marketing the state.

Nsirim, speaking on Wednesday in Port Harcourt on a radio programme, advised citizens to support Governor Nyesom Wike to build a new state.

He said: “Let us support Governor Wike to build a new Rivers State because he is enthusiastic to make the state a destination of choice and investors’ haven. He can do this if we support him.: “If the state is not safe, NLNG wouldn’t have opened its corporate headquarters in Port Harcourt. Next Supermarket, the largest in Africa, wouldn’t have opened business in Port Harcourt.”

Nsirim said Wike in the last six years had demonstrated commitment to the execution of the new Rivers vision blueprint configured to address education, health care, sports development, agriculture and rural development, women empowerment, among others, which he envisioned on assumption of office in 2015.

He said: “We have a patriotic man who loves his state with all his heart. Governor Wike doesn’t want to play to the gallery about the development of Rivers State.“He has promised Rivers people. He will continue executing projects until he hands over in May 2023. Such a character is rare to find in Nigerian governance.

“Governor Wike is bequeathing a new legacy for politics in Nigeria, to say to people not to abandon the people halfway if given a mandate for the second tenure
