Rivers State governor, Mr Nyesom Wike, has said that the March 19 re-run legislative elections in the state served as a referendum on the performance of his administration.
He said that the people of the state resoundingly approved his proactive efforts to improve their lives through quality developmental projects and programmes by voting candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Addressing the 103rd quarterly meeting of the Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers in Port Harcourt, yesterday, he said: “The March 19 elections were a referendum on our administration. It was a resounding approval of the good work we have done.”
He stated that his administration has demonstrated commitment to the development of the state through the judicious application of resources.
The governor urged the traditional rulers to cooperate with law enforcement agents and the state government to uproot cultists and criminal elements from their communities.
