(By Iheanyi Ezinwo) -Governor Ezenwo Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, known for always being ahead of his opponents has commenced the process of strengthening his political structure as politics for 2019 appear to be heating up.
One of the approaches Wike has adopted is to appoint new hands into his administration, one of who is Chief Emeh Glory Emeh, an experienced political strategist.
Barr. Emeh Glory Emeh is like the golden fish that has no hiding place .This may have informed the reason why the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, at a time wooed and eventually won him over. However, when the Emohua born politician realised that he was in the wrong place, he retracted his steps, back to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, with over 8000 APC members, a decision that made APC to go berserk, being confused for missing such an important figure.
The former commissioner of transport and aviation is an unique politician: Very generous and accessible. He is also a team player, and loyal to constituted authorities: His vision and strategies are unbeatable.
These are the attributes many believe will assist in adding value to Governor Wike, the multiple award winning governor- both at home and abroad- to make 2019 a reality..
Those who know Glory Emeh’s political pedigree have commented on several platforms that he is a politician that can bring the opposition to their knees given his performance during the Dr. Dr. Peter Odili administration.
Apart from Chief Glory Emeh with his vast experience in political and general administration, the other 38 advisers are also men and women of integrity who have been in the corridors of power since the return of democracy in 1999.
While swearing in the Special Advisers on Monday, Governor Wike advised them to see their appointment as a call to duty, and an enlistment to the commitment of his administration to render service to Rivers people.
He urged them to use their new offices to further contribute to the development of Rivers State, and not see it as an opportunity to make money.
From all indications, the Wike team has been succeeding, having put the right foot forward from the beginning, and recording unprecedented achievements that have attracted the attention of Nigerian leaders across party lines, as well as the international community.
All we can do as Rivers people is to support the governor, the 39 Special Advisers and other appointees who have been enlisted in the project of improving the lot of Rivers people at this point in time.
The reason being that, our success as a state is tied to their success in improving the welfare of the citizens, on whose mandate they are occupying various offices in the state.
