The Amanyanabo of Obonoma Community in the Akuku-Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State, His Royal Majesty, King Enenimibo-ofori Dateme-Obonogina has said it will be difficult for a successor of Governor Nyesom Wike to equal his developmental records.
The king commended Wike for showering love on the state, particularly on the Kalabari people, through many developmental projects.
He said Wike had transformed the three local government areas that constitute Kalabari nation and the entire state within a short period of six years. The Obonoma listed the projects as the construction of the Abonnema/Obonoma Bridge, the Ring Road, rehabilitation and construction of schools in various communities in Akuku-Toru, Degema and Asari-Toru local government areas.
He said over four sand filling projects were ongoing in the Kalabari area and appreciated the flag-off of the construction of the first phase of the Trans Kalabari Road project to link over six Kalabari communities.
He said the appointment of illustrious sons and daughters of Kalabari ethnic nationality into various leadership positions in government was a clear proof of Wike’s love for Kalabari people.
The king, who made the commendation in a statement in Port Harcourt, yesterday, described the developmental strides of Wike as unprecedented in the history of Rivers State.
He said: “Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has broken several jinxes in politics and governance not only in Rivers State but also in Nigeria.
“Rivers people will live to remember his reign.”
The monarch called on Rivers people to shun sentiments and give the Wike’s administration the necessary support to encourage the fulfilment of his New Rivers Vision in the remaining years of his administration.
