Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that the reports on insecurity  in the state are exaggerated by media reportage.

Wike said his principal interest is to create a peaceful  environment  for the development  of the state,  saying  despite  all the contrived distractions,  his administration  has recorded superlative achievements.

Governor Wike also declared  that  his administration  is premised on truthful relationship  with  the  Rivers people as he would fulfill  all his campaign  promises.

The governor spoke on Easter Monday  during a special  appearance  on Channels Television Sunrise Daily Programme televised from Government House, Port Harcourt.

Wike explained  that  his administration  has taken concrete measures  to  improve  the  security  of  the state through funding  of security  interventions and provision  of necessary  logistics for all security agencies.

He noted, however,  the security  in the state has been impacted negatively  by the frequent  unnecessary  transfer  of security  chiefs masterminded  by  the  former Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi.

“I won’t make a promise that I will not fulfil. The problem most politicians have is the bid to satisfy everyone. I don’t politicise development. My interest is to deliver the best for Rivers people.

“In spite of distractions, we have succeeded in completing many abandoned projects left by the previous government. We have cleared backlog of unpaid salaries and pensions left by the previous government. We have succeeded in restoring the judiciary and reopening courts shutdown by the previous government”.

“The Federal Government needs to allow security chiefs remain in Rivers State to do their jobs and  douse the tensions. I have had over three Commissioners of Police removed since I became governor.”
