Port Harcourt — Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has announced that many states are being used to fight against the state for the illegal grabbing of the state’s oil wells.
Commissioning the dualised Birabi Street, Elegbam-Rumueme in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, Governor Wike said the State has the capacity to resist any form of oil well annexation.
The governor also said that Rivers State deserves the best, noting that his administration will continue to work for the growth of the state.
“So many states are being used to fight Rivers State to collect our oil wells. We have the capacity to fight back. No state will take what belongs to Rivers State.
“Whether you are PDP or APC State, anybody who attempts to take what belongs to Rivers, Rivers State will fight back.
“This is not a question of party. It is the interest of the state that matters. My interest is Rivers State, not political party. If you are in PDP and you don’t love Rivers State, I will not love you . My love for you is based upon your love for Rivers State.”

In a project description, Permanent Secretary, Rivers State Ministry of Works, Dr Walter Ndu, said the ministry is implementing the governor’s outstanding urban renewal programme.
