Wike Lays Down Three Qualities For Second Term Appointees



Governor Nyesom Wike has laid down three qualities of those who would serve in his second term, listing them as absolute loyalty, commitment to the vision of the administration and the capacity to deliver. 

The Governor spoke on Monday  when he swore in the Secretary to the  State Government,  Dr Tammy Danagogo,  Chief of Staff,  Government House,  Engr Chukwuemeka Woke, Attorney General,  Dr Zaccheus Adango and Commissioner of Finance,  Hon Isaac Kamalu. 

He said: “These appointments are not based on sentiments. Appointment  is based on one hundred percent undiluted loyalty and competence. 

I will not appoint  people  who will run down the government.  

“We will appoint those who believe in the vision and mission of the State Government.  Those who will defend the Government and her policies “.

Governor Wike said that the first set of appointments  were made to kick start his second term and enhance the development of the state.

He said: ” The appointments that I made were not lobbied for.  I know these officials personally. 

“Going forward,  I will  take time to scrutinise people that will be appointed.  I learnt my lesson during the last term. I will only appoint people who want to work and those who want to make sacrifices for the state.

“I have known the Secretary to the State Government closely.  He is loyal and committed.  This second  term is for people who wants to work for the state”.

He charged  the new appointees not to take their appointments  for granted. He said if they fail to work for the people, they will face the consequences. 

Governor Wike advised the new Secretary to the Rivers State Government to work for all Rivers people. 

“You are not the Secretary to the State Government for the Kalabari people.  You are the Secretary to the State Government for Rivers people.  You must serve the interest of the state”, he said.

The Governor urged the people of Andoni to take immediate  measures to rescue the expatriates kidnapped by Andoni youths,  or face the withdrawal of Government Recognition for their Traditional Rulers and the stopping of the Andoni aspect of the Unity Road. 

In an interview, reappointed  Chief of Staff to the Rivers State Governor,  Engr Chukwuemeka Woke said that he will make his contributions to the actualization  of the vision and mission of the Wike Administration. 

The Secretary to the Rivers State Government,  Dr Tammy Danagogo assured that he will bring his wealth of experience  to bear in the discharge of his responsibilities.  He thanked the Rivers State Governor for the opportunity  to serve the people of Rivers State,  saying he will live up to expectations of Rivers people.
