Former President Goodluck Jonathan has declared that the excellent performance  of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has justified  the support he received  from all political stakeholders for his election in 2015.


This is as Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike assured the Former President of the continued unwavering support of Rivers people, saying that he will never be abandoned.

Speaking during the Commissioning of the Second Nkpogu Bridge as part of the second year anniversary of the Wike administration, Former President Goodluck Jonathan said: “Governor Wike has performed wonderfully well “.

He said: “I have no regrets that Governor Wike is the governor of Rivers State.  I am happy that the governor has opened up Rivers State through projects.

“Wike has shown so much commitment to infrastructural development. The whole of Rivers State  is now a construction yard.”

The Former President pointed out that the appreciation for the excellent performance of Governor Wike goes beyond party lines.  He recalled that Acting President Yemi Osinbajo after visiting the state also stated that the governor is delivering on projects.

While appreciating the people of Rivers State  for the support they gave him throughout his eight year involvement in national politics, he expressed happiness for the invitation to commission the important Second Nkpogu Bridge.

In his address, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike said that Nigerians after the two years of APC have  seen the difference between good governance  and false promises.

He explained that the decision was taken for Former President Goodluck Jonathan to commission the second Nkpogu Bridge as a clear message to the nation that he will never  be abandoned.

He said: “We are not politicians that when anything  is wrong, they sing different song. Rivers State is a different place. When we believe in you, we believe in you. We are different from other Niger Delta states.  We can say it with all authority.

“We cannot come out in the public and begin to castigate our own.  Those of them who do that,  should have a rethink.  For us, it doesn’t matter the blackmail  against Jonathan, we will continue  to  back him”.

Speaking  further, Governor Wike said: “Those who think that they have  promises from those who  think they own Nigeria should be careful.  They will use you and dump you at the appropriate time “.

Chairman of Monier Construction Company, Senator John Mbata said the company constructed  the two bridges which have linked Nkpogu to the business districts of the state capital.

Commissioner of Works, Mr. Bathuel Harrison said that the Second Nkpogu Bridge will resolve the traffic  challenge  in the area.

Governor Wike after  assuming  office constructed the first and second Nkpogu Bridges to link different parts of the state capital.
