The newly commissioned Ecumenical Centre heralded last week in Government. The beautiful architecture was finally unveiled and handed over to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) by the State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike.
Worldwide Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye and other men of God were at the dedication of the building located at the former Obi Wali Cultural Centre at Abonnema Wharf Road.
Chief Wike during the handover of Certificate of Occupancy (COfO) to Chairman of CAN, Archbishop Isaac Anyanasikike charged Christian leaders to see the centre, a place for unity amongst different denominations, and not a place for division and quarrel.
On Tuesday last week, the governor delivered a state address, where he enumerated the achievements of his administration in the past two years. Chief Wike remarked that moribund businesses are gradually returning to the state. He maintained that his administration has placed the state on the path of rapid development after the failure of the immediate past governor.
Shortly after, in a press statement, the state deputy governor, Dr. Ipalibo Harry-Banigo commended the governor for his scintillating performance in the past two years, reasoning that it’s the result of determination and focus.
On Tuesday last week, the governor through his Special Assistant on Electronic Media announced the appointment of a new Senior Special Assistant on Protocol. He is Mr Harold Augustus Koko, former Nigerian Ambassador to Serbia.
On the same Tuesday last week, Chief Wike was at Choba to inaugurate the Igbogo Road. The road links Choba to adjoining communities of Rumuoparali, Rumuekini and Alakahia.
At the occasion to unveil the Igbogo Road, the governor commented that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has lost face in Rivers State. He noted that the non-performance of the APC has made them lose electoral value, as no Rivers person will vote a party that has failed to touch their lives.
On Wednesday last week, the governor in company of Senate Deputy President, Ike Ekweremadu were at Ulakwo in Etche Local Government Area to unveil the 8-Kilometre, Ulakwo/Afara/Nihi Road.
Impressed with the different projects executed and completed by Chief Wike, Senator Ekweremadu announced the endorsement of of Wike for a second term in office caucus of National Assembly.
Ekweremadu said, “A lot more will still happen over the next six years of Governor Wike’s leadership. Governor Wike is creating economic corridors which will enhance economic development. More of Wike will transform Nigeria”.
On Friday last week, Special Adviser to Governor on Inter Party Affairs, Barrister Itamunowala responded to claims by 2015 Guber candidate of Labour Party, Prince Tonye Princewill that Chief Wike administration lacks vision.
According to Barrister Itamunoala, Prince Tonye Princewill lacks the moral backbone to criticize Wike following his constant change of parties just to realise his guber ambition.
The SA on Interparty Affairs further condemned Princewill’s remarks considering his pedigree as one who is not ready to sacrifice his time and effort, but would rather jump ship in order to assuage his business inclinations.
