proclaimed: “Now therefore, I , Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, (CON, GSSRS, POS AFRICA),  Governor, Rivers  State of Nigeria, in exercise of the power conferred upon me by section 105 of  the Constitution and all other  powers enabling  me in that behalf hereby proclaim that the 8th Assembly of the 4th Republic of  the Rivers State House of Assembly stands dissolved, while the first session of the 9th Assembly shall hold on this day, third day of June,  2019 at the Assembly Complex, Moscow Road,  Port  Harcourt.

“As we usher in the new term of this August House, I pray and hope that your deliberations will be constructive, democratic, progressive and people-oriented.

“On this positive note, it is my singular honour and privilege to official proclaim the first session of the 9th Legislative Assembly of Rivers State”.

Governor Wike  assured the State  Lawmakers  that his administration will continue to  promote  the independence of  the State Legislature.  

Governor Wike appealed to the state lawmakers to partner with his administration to enhance security,  good governance and improved living standards for the people.

“Also, out of the 32 members of the House, only 9 are new. This means that most of you have returned to the table with your wealth of experience to continue working from where you stopped. I know you may all have come here with different mindsets on what you want to achieve for yourselves, your constituencies and for the State.

“But, one thing is clear; you are here for one fundamental purpose – to make laws for the good governance of the State, to create the right conditions and drive for our collective vision for the sustainable economic, social and political development of our State”, Governor Wike noted.

Clerk of the Rivers State House of Assembly,  Standford Oba officially invited the Governor Wike to proclaim the House  in line with the provision of the constitution.
