*I will never abandon you Sir, says Wike

Former President, Goodluck Jonathan has said that the performance of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has justified the support he received from the people during the 2015 election.
Jonathan was speaking during the commissioning of the Second Nkpogu Bridge as part of the second year anniversary of Wike administration.
He said, “Governor Wike has performed wonderfully well.
“I have no regrets that Governor Wike is the governor of Rivers State. I am happy that the governor has opened up Rivers State through projects. Wike has shown so much commitment to infrastructural development. The whole of Rivers State is now a construction yard.”
The Former President further said that the appreciation for the works done by Wike goes beyond party lines. He recalled that Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo after visiting the state also stated that the governor is delivering on projects.
Jonathan expressed happiness for the invitation to commission the all important Second Nkpogu Bridge.
On his part, Governor Wike, said the decision was taken for former President, Goodluck Jonathan to commission the second Nkpogu bridge is to communicate to the nation that the former President won’t be abandoned.
He said, “We are not politicians that when anything is wrong, they sing different song. Rivers State is a different place. When we believe in you, we believe in you. We are different from other Niger Delta states. We can say it with all authority.
“We cannot come out in the public and begin to castigate our own. Those who do that, should have a rethink. For us, it doesn’t matter the blackmail against Jonathan, we will continue to back him.”
Speaking further, Governor Wike added, “Those who think that they have promises from those who think they own Nigeria should be careful. They will use you and dump you at the appropriate time.”
On his performance, Wike said that comparing his performance with that of the ruling All Progressives Congress in two years, Nigerians have seen the difference between good governance and false promises. (DAILY POST Online)
