The Chief Whip of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Hon. Evans Bapakaye Bipi has noted that, the forthcoming Rivers State Golden Jubilee Celebration will show case the state in good light, attract investors and tourists as well as prove wrong the perspective of members of the opposition party that Rivers State is unsafe.
Hon. Bipi made this assertion in a chat with journalists on the sideline of the burial of Late Amanyanabo of Bolo Kingdom, at Bolo on Saturday.
According to him, with Rivers State marking its 50th Golden Jubilee anniversary in May, will prove book makers especially members of the opposition, All Progressives Congress (APC) wrong that Rivers State is insecure, adding that, the way and manner they are desperately portraying the state in bad light is figment of their imagination.
He narrated that on his way from Lagos recently, he saw a foreigner jogging along the Airport road in Port Harcourt, which is a clear manifestation that Rivers State is safe unlike before.
The Lawmaker reiterated that, there is no iota of truth that Rivers State is unsafe, stressing that it is safe for investors and tourism as the Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike had done enough to ensure safety of lives and property of its citizens.
Hon. Bipi also noted that, his constituency, Ogu/Bolo LGA is very much prepared to also show case their rich cultural heritage at the Golden Jubilee Ceremony.
“Ogu/Bolo does not take last in such activities and they are well prepared and ready to emerge in all the activities they are going to participate”, he opined.
