Eminent Rivers Ministers Network Advises Gov Wike Over Waterfront Demolition

A prominent group in the state under the aegis of Eminent Rivers Eminent Rivers Ministers Network Worldwide has joined other well-meaning Nigerians to advise the state governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike to trade softly with the waterfront dwellers.

The group leader, Bishop Godswill E.D. Jumbo stated this in a chat with newsmen in Port Harcourt over the weekend in a one day interactive summit on Rivers State politics held at Orochiri Community Town Hall, Rumukalagbor in Port Harcourt Local Government Area of Rivers State.

He stated that in as much as the governor means well for the people, through his infrastructural development their welfare is of necessity.

“This means that stomach infrastructure is most important to the citizen as well as their welfare.

After all, these people also contributed immensely in voting the leaders into office,” he fumed. The waterfront demolition should have human face. A 7 day notice is too short a time for a whole community to evacuate without any form of compensaton or alternative accommodation.
