( By Iheanyi Ezinwo) – Engr. Emeka Woke, who was first appointed Chief of Staff, Government House, Port Harcourt at the early days of the seven year old administration of Governor Ezenwo Nyesom Wike of Rivers State in 2015. As an astute administrator, who cut his teeth in public administration from his days as council chairman of Emohua Local Government.Council, Engr. Emeka Woke quickly familiarized himself with the new context and passionately discharged his duties with all sense of responsibility.
It is therefore not surprising that he was called.back by His Excellency, not long after the dissolution of the Rivers State Executive Council, and directive to him to step aside.
Those who have been following the steady rise in the profile of the Emohua born politician in the management of public affairs can attest to his unquestionable loyalty and high sense of purpose.
His re – appointment to the same office of Chief of Staff by Governor Nyesom Wike is seen by many as a solid endorsement of the engineer turned politician as a worthy ally, who can be trusted at all times to deliver on his mandate.
We therefore congratulate Engr. Emeka Woke for his tenacity of purpose towards the NEW Rivers Vision of the Governor Wike administration. His re-appointment as Chief of Staff is, from all indications, a befitting reward for faithful stewardship. We commend the Governor of Rivers State, Ezenwo Nyesom Wike, CON, GSSRS, POS (Africa) for thoughtfully restoring Engr. Emeka Woke to the office of Chief of Staff, Government House, Port Harcourt. We have.no doubt that the Chief of Staff is returning with fresh zeal to justify the confidence reposed in him by the appointing authority – to serve God and humanity with all his strength.
It is our sincere.prayer that this last lap of the Governor Nyesom Wike administration will be used to consolidate on the gains of the last seven years, for the good of Rivers people and to the glory of God.
