Addressing journalists at the Government House, Port Harcourt  after inspecting projects being executed by Governor Wike, the Former President  stated that Wike is a worthy representative of the PDP.

He praised the governor for keeping the torch shinning by his exemplary  performance, which has justified  his election  by the people of Rivers State.

He noted that  since Governor Wike was sworn in, Saturday was his first time of driving round Port Harcourt. He expressed  satisfaction  with the quality of transformation he witnessed  enroute the Government House, Port Harcourt.

He said: “I am part of Rivers State. I grew up in Rivers State and Bayelsa was carved out of Rivers State. Also, my wife is from Rivers State. Today, is my first day of visiting Rivers State since Wike assumed office as Governor. Twenty two months down the line, I am quite impressed with what I have seen.

“First, I heard so much, people have told me of the changes in Port Harcourt. I was told that I can’t even recognise the roads to where I used to live . As we drove into the city, I noticed that he has done very well in various areas.”

Former President Jonathan stated: “One thing I must commend Wike is that he has positive traits. I always believe that wherever you find yourself, add value. Governor Wike has added value in Rivers State. He has done well to show his signature.

“Wike has taken us round. We have seen how he has transformed the Brick House and maintain that Brick House. We saw the changes he has made in some places in the Government House, including building an amphitheatre, a new chapel for worship, relaxing places and general beautification.

“If you are the Chief Executive of an institution, you stay for two years and you add no value, then you have no vision. Wike is doing well and we commend him. He is a good representative of the PDP who is committed to developing his people.”
