From: TONY JOHN, Port Harcourt

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom  Wike, has assured the Christian community that he would sustain the delivery of democracy dividends in the state. 

Speaking during a courtesy visit by the Archbishop of Anglican  Diocese, Niger Delta Province, Most Rev Ignatius Kattey at the Government House, Port Harcourt yesterday, Governor Wike said he would never disappoint Christians in his service to the state. 

He said: “We will never disappoint  Christians. I will continue to deliver  quality projects  that will improve the living condition of the people. 

“We will continue to complete projects inherited from previous administrations, as long as such projects will impact positively  on the lives of the people. 

“Part of the problem we have are the number of abandoned projects, which are scattered  everywhere.  When you  complete a project, someone  comes up to say that  project was 99 percent completed, such criticisms will not deter us”.

The  governor  reiterated that he would  continue to partner with the church. He said that  the church helped to  enthrone the  administration through  prayers and  unflinching  support. 

“Whatever promise I have made to the church will be fulfilled”, he said.

Speaking further, the governor said that he would  meet with Christian leaders  to fashion out ways to put the State Ecumenical Centre to regular use.

Earlier, the Archbishop of Niger Delta Province, Most Rev Ignatius Kattey commended the governor for his achievements over the last two years.

“We commend the governor for his achievements. We are proud of your landmark achievements.  I want to thank  the Governor for his statesmanship  in governance.”
