Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has charged newly sworn-in commissioners to establish links with their respective constituencies, so that the people can benefit from Government Programmes.
The governor also charged caretaker committee chairmen to pay salaries of workers and support security agencies in their local government areas.
He spoke on Friday during the swearing-in of commissioners and caretaker committee chairmen at the Government House, Port Harcourt.
He said: “As commissioners, you must have a link with your people. If you lose touch with your people, government will have a problem.
” From time to time, brief your people on the programmes of government for the good of the state. Be committed to your work. If you do your work, you will get my support.”
He charged the new commissioners to be loyal to the state government, pointing out that undivided loyalty will not be allowed.
“Think outside the box on ways to improve the state”, he said.
To the caretaker committee chairmen, the governor said there should be no compromise on the payment of salaries.
He stated that any chairman found to compromise security will be sacked. He warned them against forming or arming groups.
” The extension of your tenure will be based on your performance ” , the governor noted.
“IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the politically disgruntled and the treasury looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”
