Second Term: We Will Rely  Mainly On Leaders Within The System Says Governor Wike 

Rivers State Governor,  Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated  that his second term administration will feature leaders from within the State Structure, with a few new officials  drawn from outside the system.

Speaking during a Special State Luncheon  for members of the Rivers State Second Term Inauguration Committee  at the Government House Port Harcourt on Wednesday, Governor Wike assured that he will always involve  those who worked  hard for the success  of the administration, especially those who served in the Second Term Inauguration Committee. 

He said: "Most of you or some of you must still be part of the government, the cabinet  and other parts of the  administration. 

"Those of you who are prayer warriors should continue to  pray. Generally,  it cannot be outside  this area. It cannot  be.  It will be people within the system and some from outside. 

"Don't  feel that we have abandoned  you. Not at all. Government House is still open to you".

He commended the Second Term Inauguration Committee for delivering  a world class transition from first term to second term for his administration. 

Governor Wike expressed happiness  that the committee  worked  religiously  to deliver  quality  programmes  that shaped  the commencement of his second term. 

"After the successful Second Term  Inauguration,  the Deputy Governor and I decided  to host the committee  for the wonderful  inauguration. 

"We were filled with  happiness,  particularly  on the day of the second term inauguration.  The only day we had a challenge  was the day of the Thanksgiving Service.  But the committee made amends", he said.

Chairman of the Second Term inauguration Committee and Former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives,  Rt Hon Austin Opara thanked the Rivers State Governor for the opportunity  to serve the state.

He formally  recommended all members  of the Second Term Inauguration Committee  for different responsibilities  in the forthcoming administration,  saying that they lived up expectations. 

The Former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives thanked the Rivers State Governor for monitoring  the preparations and activities of the committee,  which ensured  that the members delivered.

Professor Mrs. Ngozi Ordu on behalf  of other committee members expressed gratitude to Governor Wike for the opportunity to serve. She said that members  of the Second Term Inauguration Committee went the extra mile  to ensure the transition  into the second term was successful.
