Rivers SSG Calls On Citizens To Build Peace

The Secretary to the Rivers State Government, Dr Tammy Danagogo, has called on well-meaning citizens of the state to join hands in building the peace Governor Nyesom Wike has set in motion for a sustainable and progressive state.

Dr Danagogo stated that, it was the responsibility of all persons who live and do business in the state to nurture the peace in their environment as the Governor is doing all within his means to support and work with all security agencies in the State to fast track the developmental agenda of the NEW administration.

The Secretary to the State Government stated this when the Ministers and Ambassadors for Peace in the Niger Delta paid him a courtesy visit in his office in Port Harcourt today.

According to the SSG, sustainable peace is desired in all parts of Nigeria especially for citizens in the North West and North East who now live in constant fear because of the precarious security situation in that part of the country.

While encouraging the ministers to keep up the good work, he urged them to continue to take the pains of going into the Niger Delta creeks to reorient the youths and encourage those who are yet to lay down their arms to do so.

“No amount of money is too much to reorient our youths if the resources were available. That is why I think one of the best presidents Nigeria has ever  had was the late Musa Yaradua who set up the Niger Delta Ministry, Amnesty agencies with resources.

“If the monies were judiciously used, I think it would have been meaningful for our people through the reorientation and education to develop skills for empowerment of the youths. He was a president that had a lot of foresight and empathy”, he emphasized.

He further observed that the issues of security, the ecology and topography in Rivers State like other parts of the Niger Delta makes contract sums much more expensive as compared to what is obtainable in other parts of the country.

He thanked and urged the association members to keep praying for the State in accordance with the  Holy scriptures that directs faithfuls to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

The President of the Ministers and Ambassadors for Peace in the Niger Delta, Bishop Prince Samuel Richard intimated the SSG of their missions and achievements in working and praying for the peace of the Niger Delta and especially Rivers State.

The Bishop noted that, the association which was formed 14 years ago would also organize some outlined programs as the Peace Prayer Summit, one million man match for peace if Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.

He enjoined the SSG to join hands with the association in winning the souls of youths in the Niger Delta.
