“First, I heard so much, people have told me of the changes in Port Harcourt. I was told that I can’t even recognise the roads to where I used to live. As we drove into the city, I noticed that he has done very well in various areas.

“One thing I must commend Wike for is that he has positive traits. I always believe that wherever you find yourself, add value. Governo1r Wike has added value in Rivers State. He has done weĺl to show his signature.

“Wike has taken us round. We have seen how he has transformed the Brick House and maintains that Brick House. We saw the changes he has made in some places in the Government House, including building an amphitheatre, a new chapel for worship, relaxing places and general beautification.

“If you are the chief executive of an institution, you stay for two years and you add no value, then you have no vision. Wike is doing well and we commend him. He is a good representative of the PDP who is committed to developing his people.”
