By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has expressed the commitment of his administration to creating a more robust business environment that will activate economic growth, and create jobs for the indigenes of Rivers State in 2021.
Wike’s resolve was contained in his New Year broadcast to Rivers people, where he said that he would concentrate on building on the solid development foundation his administration has built for Rivers State in 2021, in tandem with the aspirations of the people.
According to Wike, his administration’s agenda for the state from the onset has been pragmatic and targeted at addressing the critical concerns of the people, which includes the sustenance of peace and security, education, affordable healthcare, bridging the infrastructural lacuna and engendering economic growth, and social progress for the State.
“Today, we express our gratitude to God and our people not only for the opportunity to serve but also for the achievements we have recorded, which now forms the foundations for our drive towards greater levels of development, economic growth, better life, and secured future for our people.
“But, we also concede to the fact that there’s much more to be done to realize the Rivers State of our dreams: a progressive State with fabulous infrastructures, quality education, affordable healthcare, and boundless economic opportunities for all who live in it.
“We will therefore continue in 2021 to focus on the fundamental task of creating a new Rivers State through prudent, efficient, and transparent management of available resources.
