Amidst the massive sack of members of the National Assembly on the platform of the Peoplers’ Democratic party, PDP, by the Appeal Court, the Rivers State Governor,  Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has reiterated  that the mandate he has as governor  came directly  from the people of  the  state  who trooped out in their numbers  to vote for him on April 11 and 12.
Governor  Wike  maintained that the acceptance  his administration enjoys has been further Consolidated by  the celebrations on the streets of Port Harcourt,  Obio/Akpor and Ikwerre  Local Government  Areas during his regular  project inspections.
 Addressing  journalists    after inspecting  road and school  projects in Obio/Akpor and Port Harcourt  Local  Government  Areas, Governor  Wike  declared  that he was further inspired to deliver  on his covenant with the people by their appreciation of his good works.
He assured the people that he would never be distracted as he has made a commitment  to  serve them and ensure  that  they  get the benefits of standing by him.

“The mandate the  people freely gave to us will be utilised effectively  for their  wellbeing. People came out overwhelmingly  and voted for us and we are doing  what they want “.
