The Royal father pointed out that he has done a lot in his community as the leader, praying that the legacy he will leave behind is what his children will emulate in future. He described Easter as the remembrance of death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In his Easter message, the elder statesman urged the people of Rivers State to demonstrate love to one another, shun violence as well as “power drunk syndrome” and move the state forward, so that there will be no Boko Haram problem in Rivers State. The elder statesman said that the first governor of Rivers State, Alfred Diette Spiff laid a very good foundation for the state, which the present governors are enjoying now.
The community Head also said that Melford Okilo was another governor of Rivers State produced by National Party of Nigeria NPN, that equally did well for the people; there was no “discrimination”. Chief Wami recalled that the leaders of different communities in Rivers State used to have regular meetings with the governor of the state then, but regretted that nothing like that is happening again.
The chief lamented that there are a lot of resources in Rivers State, but the leaders are sitting on top of the resources alone. He frowned that the marginalization in the areas of infrastructural development and sharing of political appointment has become unbearable for the people of the state and the country at large. ###
