PORT HARCOURT – Dr Henry Ogiri, the Director, Finance and Administration, Niger Delta Development Commission, on Monday urged Rivers governor-elect, Chief Nyesom Wike, to carry everybody along in his administration.
Ogiri told newsmen in Port Harcourt that Wike’s victory in the governorship election was the will of Rivers people.
He said Wike had the capacity to move the state forward, having served as a former minister and local government chairman.
According to Ogiri, there is need for candidates at the state level to show same spirit of sportsmanship displayed by President Goodluck Jonathan and President-elect, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd).
Ogiri also said that the statesmanship shown by Jonathan had shamed those who predicted that the nation would break up after the general elections.
‘’Our President has shown an uncommon magnanimity and statesmanship by conceding defeat to Gen Buhari and urged Nigerians to support him.’’
