National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has hailed Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State for inviting people across party lines and regional divide to commission his projects, saying that this has distinguished him as a pan-Nigerian and a symbol of national unity and cohesion.
NYCN stated this in Abuja during an engagement with journalists after a stakeholders’ meeting in line with the mandate of identifying and partnering with distinguished Nigerians, especially those who have shown commitment to national development, unity and cohesion as well as youth- friendly policies.
In a statement after the meeting, the group said, “Governor Wike has demonstrated that he is a symbol of national unity as he has continued to be sportsmanly in his interactions with Nigerians across political divides. The invitation of the presidential candidates of Labour Party (LP), Mr. Peter Obi and that of New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso to visit and commission projects in the state shows that the governor has no time for bitterness in his political career”.
On the award given by President Buhari to Governor Ezenwo Nyesom Wike, the group noted that it is well deserved and equally a reflection of not just his personality but his style of leadership which is goal oriented and people driven.
“Nobody in the history of Nigeria is more deserving of the award for infrastructural development that was awarded to His Excellency Governor Nyesom Wike. A visit to Port Harcourt will convince even a blind man that Wike is development conscious. He has eased the problem of traffic in Rivers with his strategic flyover projects and numerous access roads across the states. Indeed, a visionary leader like Wike deserves to rule the country and replicate the Rivers’ blueprint nationally”, the statement noted.
