Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, says his administration is committed to making life comfortable for youths posted to the state for their compulsory one year national youth service Programmes.
Governor Wike was speaking on Monday, while hosting 2019 Batch-B, Stream-one National Youth Corps members who came to express appreciation to the governor for the privilege given to them to serve at the government house, Port Harcourt .
Represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Tammy Danagogo, Governor Wike said there is no administration comparable to the Wike administration in Nigeria that has remained exceptional in upgrading facilities at the Nonwa orientation camp in Tai local government area of the state.
He said internal roads have been rehabilitated at the orientation camp in Nonwa plus the reconstruction of auditorium and hotels for Corps members.
“I want to thank you for this show and demonstration of appreciation of the kind gesture of the governor. He is a man with a large heart, and always catered for the well-being of youth corps members who come to serve in Rivers state.
“You’re all aware that all the halls, internal roads, and hostels in the camp have been transformed. I do not think there is a any state in Nigeria where you can boast of facilities in NYSC orientation camps as much as he has provided in Rivers state.
“He had done all these without expecting any thank you from anybody. It is in the same manner, just as he has been doing for corps members in previous years, that you came and he admitted you to serve in the government house of Rivers state.
“But I must say that you have distinguished yourselves because many have been coming and going and actually nobody has thought it wise to come together to do any presentation in appreciation of his Excellency’s kind gestures to them. You have scored first in that direction,” he said.
The governor also charged them to remain focus as worthy Nigeria youths and continue with the level of commitment they had demonstrated while serving at government in order to succeed in their future endeavour.
Leader of the group, Amina Andah noted that it as a rare privilege for them to served the state from the government house.
She commended Governor Wike for the proactive measures his administration has taken in the fight against covid-19 in the state which have contributed to the successes recorded.
The group made a presentation of three waste disposal bins and a portrait of governor Wike.

Calls To Head COVID-19 Team Handiwork Of Mischief Makers Says Rivers State Deputy Governor, Ipalibo Banigo
Rivers State Deputy Governor, Dr. Mrs. Ipalibo Harry Banigo has dissociated herself from calls by mischief makers urging the Governor to let her head the COVID 19 Team in the State.
In a statement from the Government House in Port Harcourt on Friday, the Deputy Governor expressed regret that despite the concerted efforts by Governor Wike to protect the Rivers People and stem the spread of Covid 19, some faceless enemies of the State sponsor e-rats to publish junk in the social media, what an absurd way to play politics.
The Deputy Governor of Rivers State is a part and parcel of the Governors team in this fight against the Killer Virus and she is contributing her quota, she must not head the team. There is no law that says she should head the team so why the fuss.
Governor Wike is the leader and he has demonstrated great capacity and leadership in the Country not only in the quest to defeat Covid 19 but in providing democratic dividends to the Rivers People and beyond.
Governor Wike was the first to close his boarders even before the Federal Government thought of it, decontamination of public places is on-going, he has put strict restriction on social gathering, imposed lockdown, curfews, provided all the necessary logistics for health professionals to do their jobs efficiently, intensified public enlightenment campaigns, etc.
What these mischief makers and their political sponsors do not realize is the fact that Covid 19 is not just a Medical or Public Health issue. It goes far beyond health, it is also a security as well as a Socio -economic and political issue, so flaunting the resume’ of Dr. Banigo as a Public Health Physician
and urging Governor Wike to make her head the team is an exercise in futility.
We are facing a novel corona virus; Covid 19 pandemic which no one knows enough about. It is a war and we must all be on board to fight it. This is not the time for distractions.
Please obey all the protocols as elucidated by NCDC and the Rivers State Government which includes the correct wearing of face masks, regular washing of hands with soap and running water as well as the use of alcohol based hand sanitizers, improve personal hygiene, avoiding crowded environment and stop stigmatization of people with the virus. Together we will win the war against Covid 19.
