Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has felicitated with the Ogoni people during the celebration of the 20th Ogoni Day anniversary, declaring his commitment to addressing the development challenges of the area.

The governor noted with satisfaction the contribution of the Ogoni people to the development of democratic and social institutions in Rivers State and Nigeria.

He particularly noted that his administration appreciates the sacrifices and contributions of the prominent Ogoni sons and daughters to nation-building.

He stated that the state polytechnic in Bori was renamed as Kenule Beeson Sarowiwa Polytechnic to immortalise and honour the late internationally recognised environmentalist.

Governor Wike said that he holds the Ogoni people in high esteem, hence Ogoni sons and daughters have been appointed into strategic positions to actualise the development goals of his administration.

He assured that his administration would continue to work with all stakeholders to address the environmental challenges facing Ogoni land.

The governor urged the Ogoni people to always support his administration, assuring that he would always work to advance the interest of the people.
