Abuja (Sundiata Post) — Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has declared that Rivers State governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has performed creditably well since assuming office 22 months ago, transforming the State in the process.

The former President was led on a tour of projects in the Government House, Port Harcourt on Saturday, a statement issued by the Special Assistant to the Rivers State governor (Electronic Media), Simeon Nwakaudu, said.

The governor led the former President round projects such as the new amphitheatre, the Government House Chapel, Restored Brick House (former Seat of Power in Rivers State), New Corridor of Power and Extended Landscape.

Addressing journalists at the Government House, Port Harcourt, after inspecting projects being executed by Wike, the former President stated that Wike is a worthy representative of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He praised the governor for keeping the torch shinning by his exemplary performance, which has justified his election by the people of Rivers State.

Jonathan noted that Wike’s outstanding performance has become the common story across the country.

He pointed out that he has been hearing about the good works of the governor for sometime.

He expressed satisfaction with the quality of transformation he witnessed enroute the Government House, Port Harcourt.

“I am part of Rivers State. I grew up in Rivers State, and Bayelsa (State) was carved out of Rivers State. Also, my wife is from Rivers State. Today, is my first day of visiting Rivers State since Wike assumed office as Governor. Twenty two months down the line, I am quite impressed with what I have seen.

“First, I heard so much, people have told me of the changes in Port Harcourt. I was told that I can’t even recognise the roads to where I used to live . As we drove into the city, I noticed that he has done very well in various areas.

“One thing I must commend Wike is that he has positive traits. I always believe that wherever you find yourself, add value. Governor Wike has added value in Rivers State. He has done weĺl to show his signature.

“Wike has taken us round. We have seen how he has transformed the Brick House and maintain that Brick House. We saw the changes he has made in some places in the Governmenr House, including building an amphitheatre, a new chapel for worship, relaxing places and general beautification.

“If you are the Chief Executive of an institution, you stay for two years and you add no value, then you have no vision. Wike is doing well and we commend him. He is a good representative of the PDP who is committed to developing his people,” Jonathan said.
