Gov. Nyesom WIke was full of praises for President Muhammadu Buhari for kicking off the cleanup programme of Ogoniland today; Wike said that “Mr. President’s visit to the State is both historic and significant. It is historic because it marks his first official visit to the state since assuming office as the president of this great nation. It is most significant because Mr. President is not on a political mission but to kick-start the largest environmental cleanup in our nation’s history, for which Rivers people, and indeed the Niger Delta will remain grateful.”
Wike assured president Buhari of safety, announcing that “We have, therefore, banned the use of motorcycles and tricycles in Gokana and Khana Local Government Areas for the period between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Thursday (today).
“I call on Rivers people to be peaceful, law-abiding and demonstrate the traditional Rivers hospitality towards the president and his distinguished entourage throughout the visit.
“As I have noted earlier, Mr President is here as the father of the nation, who cares about the environmental and developmental challenges that we face,’’ Wike said.
