'You Have Not Seen Anything Yet...' Governor Wike Declares

The Executive Governor of Rivers state, Barrister Nyesome Wike has told the residents of Rivers state that there is more to come on the dividends of democracy in his administration. The governor made this statement on May 29, democracy day, in reflection of his one year in office.

On his first year in office, Wike said despite the challenges faced by his administration, he said that the successes already recorded will be surpassed in his second year in office.

“This is one year, you have not seen anything as far as development is concerned. In our second year, more development will be witnessed across the state”, he said.

He informed that the administration has taken measures to save funds through biometrics to determine the true number of civil servants in the employment of the state government. He said that the state government has already paid the April salaries of the 13000 civil servants who have completed their biometrics.

According to the Governor, only civil servants who have done their biometrics will henceforth receive their salaries. He added that all 54000 civil servants must physically present themselves for biometrics before they are considered to be employees of the Rivers State Government.

On security, Barrister Wike said that he has provided the needed logistics for Security Agencies to improve security across the state. He noted that he has received assurances that in the coming months, security will improve. He also mentioned that nobody is above the law in the state pointing out that anybody that commits a crime will be diligently prosecuted.
