Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, has said he will campaign with the award bestowed on him by President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2023 elections.
IDOMA VOICE reports that Wike was honoured with the ‘Distinguished Award in Infrastructure Delivery’ held in Port Harcourt on Monday night.
While dedicating the award to God, he said the successes his administration recorded in infrastructural development were made possible by the support and encouragement he received from the state.
He said, “We must all work together. Traditional rulers, help Rivers State to move forward. Contractors, all of you should help Rivers State so that Rivers State can be what it used to be, the foundation Dr. Peter Odili laid.
“So I thank all of you, and I dedicate this award to God Almighty and to all of you who have prayed for us to achieve what we have achieved. The award is not to me. It is to all of you. I feel proud to say if the ruling party can say you have done well, who is that person? Let them come and campaign here.
“Bring your report card. I will bring the award and the certificate. President Buhari said I have done well.”
“I am going, and I am also happily going. I don’t have any regrets. In fact, I told my wife that now I have no job, you will kiss me till you get tired.”
