BANIGO DESCRIBES WIKE AS A MAN WITH A HEART OF GOLD
''Rivers State Deputy Governor, Dr. (Mrs.) Ipalibo Harry Banigo has described Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, as a man with a Heart of Gold.
Dr. Banigo stated this at the Government House in Port Harcourt in reaction to Governor Wike’s physical presence at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport and the Presidential Villa in Abuja to receive President Muhammadu Buhari on his return from Medical vacation in the United Kingdom.
The Deputy Governor said “contrary to erroneous belief in some quarters that the State Chief Executive holds animosity against the President the Governor has no personal problems with him. It is Governor Wike’s fierce defence of the interest of the Rivers People that is often misconstrued by those who do not mean well for the State as fighting with the President”.
She said although a lot of people were pleasantly surprised to see him at the Airport and the Villa to welcome the President those who are close to the Governor knows how compassionate he is especially when it comes to the issues of health.
Dr. Banigo who expressed gratitude to the Governor for restoring the Chairman Care Taker Committee of Ogu Bolo Local Government Area Mrs. Mary Minaseichinbo back to her position said she is the only female CTC chairman representing the women for now.
She urged Rivers Women to continue to support Governor Wike and advised the Ogu Bolo Care Taker Committee Chairman to justify the confidence reposed in her by delivering democratic dividends to the people of her Local Government Area.''
