Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said that the state remains top priority for him above all else.
Speaking on Thursday during a courtesy visit by the leadership of One Million Youths for New Rivers State to his office, Mr Wike said he was committed to developing Rivers.
“My commitment is to Rivers State. My focus is on whatever will make Rivers State to be a leader among the comity of states. We are working to have a positive impact on the lives of the people of Rivers State, to make sure that we have to protect the interest of Rivers State,” he said.
“No party is above the interest of Rivers State. Any party without the interest of Rivers State, will not have any connection with me. That does not mean that I don’t have the interest of my party, but Rivers State is paramount.”
Wike assured youths that many of them would be appointed in his administration. He also called on them to remain loyal to the state.
“Loyalty by the stomach is not full loyalty. I urge you to remain faithful to the state. Don’t allow busy body politicians to make you do what you are not supposed to do,” he said.
