“WE WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE OUR ALL TO RIVERS STATE.”
Let me begin by expressing my deepest gratitude to God Almighty and the people of Rivers State for the rare privilege and opportunity to serve you as your Governor for another four years.
Good afternoon Gentlemen of the Press.
I am delighted to have you here today barely a week after we shared the breaking achievements of the Command, where some breathtaking successes were showcased to the admiration of the receiving public.
One of the principal maxims of the Common Law is nemo judex in causa sua (no man shall be a judge in his own case). The call by my legal team for Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa to recuse herself from the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal was predicated on this principle, being that her husband, Alhaji Mohammed Bulkachuwa, is an All Progressives Congress Senator-elect and the case she was expected to adjudicate upon had a bearing on that party.

Ahead of what is a forceful push to excavate some sites in Ogoni under acclaimed implementation of UNEP Report, a build up is in place for soldiers of the Nigerian Military to swamp the area as cover for special contractors to proceed on a clean up process that is in utmost secrecy and deeply doubted for its integrity.
In what seems like a parody of the clean-up of the heavily polluted Ogoni land, a PREMIUM TIMES investigation has revealed that almost all of the 16 companies awarded contracts for the first phase of the exercise by the Buhari administration have no experience whatsoever in the remediation of oil spills.
