Wike: “I Have To Step On Toes, To Make Rivers State Better” by ChemBrodar: 10:58am On Sep 10
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said that he must “step on toes” to make the state better.

Mr Wike said this on Monday evening during the submission of report by the Committee for Accreditation and Approval of Private Schools in Rivers at the Government House, Port Harcourt.

The governor also said that he is yet to form his cabinet because he is seeking out people who would work with dedication and passion for the state.

“I have not formed my cabinet because I am taking my time to monitor and look at people who would work with passion for Rivers State,” he said.

“Politics is involved, but you must be ready to work for the state. That is why you see that there is a delay in the formation of the cabinet. No matter the criticism, I will do what is right.

“We must work to move Rivers State forward. In doing that, we must step on toes. We can’t allow the state to be the way it is.

“I believe that with the calibre of persons who served in the committee, you have done a good job. I have confidence in the committee.”

Wike explained that he set up the committee because of the urgent need to check the downward slide of private schools in the state.

He said: “People have unnecessarily commercialised education. They have become traders in the field of education. We will not allow that to continue.

“All those schools that you have denied accreditation, even the ones you have approved, I will look at them again. But specifically, the ones you have denied. They will not function in this state.”

Stepping on toes was exactly what I expected of Buhari in 2015

That man is a disappointment, to say the least!

Sir, so long as the project will touch the lives of poor Riverians positively, putting food on their tables, just go ahead and step not only on toes but even on testicles without apologizing to anyone.
Good governance is all we want.

This man is not as wise as he's presenting himself as. When Muslims do it, we Christians roar at the top of our voice against it. So it'll be a disgusting hypocrisy to egg you on. Immediately he used the statement that he was fighting for the church, I knew he was playing a fast game on the head of uneducated masses. grin

That's very good of you, since ure not like those hypocrites. That came with Bible & Canon Guns, some century back. They took blacks to USA as slaves in the name of a white good looking blonde, they took blacks land & their resources in the name of that blonde and are still neo colonizing us in the name of that blonde. Read how Europe under developed Africa, for you to under stand their evils. Wike should please carry on.
