Port Harcourt   –    Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike, says Rivers people believe in Nigerian unity.

He said that because of that they may not be part of any secession agenda.

The Governor made this known at the 57th Independence Church Service, which held at Saint Mark’s Anglican Church in Port Harcourt. 

‘’God has blessed this country, we are not part of those who want to secede, Rivers State will never be part of that,” the Governor stressed.

The governor, however, advised the Federal Government to ensure good governance to end the increasing agitation for self determination among ethnic groups in Nigeria.

“In as much as you continue to have bad governance, people will continue to agitate across the country, we give God the glory that we are still one, despite the agitations and challenges,’’ he added.

He called for justice and equity for all citizens.

He also advised Nigerians to  always speak out against injustice.

Gov. Wike noted that politicians  sometimes behaved irrationally  because of their thinking that they could always manipulate election results to suit their purpose.

The Governor called for enhanced security and and a purposeful justice system for all federating units.
