Sustenance Of New Rivers Vision : Emeka Woke Option

(By Iheanyi Ezinwo) – Long before he had the opportunity to preside over the affairs of Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Wike had a dream of a better state. The vision inspired him to seek and secure the mandate of Rivers people on two occasions, and evidences abound of his numerous contributions to the infrastructural and human capital development in Rivers State.

However, it is not in doubt that New Rivers Vision is not a project that can fully be achieved in eight years. Now that the governor has less than two years to conclude his two terms of eight years, wisdom demands that the right peg is put in the right hole in order to guarantee the sustenance of the New Rivers Vision.

In this connection, it is only an individual who sincerely shares in that vision that can be trusted to advance the cause of development of the state through the NEW Rivers model. Although participation in politics is open to all, it is not all that grandstand that are doing so out of sincere interest for the welfare of the citizens. Over the last six years plus, Governor Wike has worked with many people, and one man who had stood out and also worked most closely with the Governor, is Engr. Emeka Woke, Chief of Staff, Government House, Port Harcourt.

A man of action and few words, Chief Emeka Woke has demonstrated, over time, that he is not just one of those politicians, but one that can be trusted. Besides, he has also justified the use of power right from his days as Council Chairman at the Emohua Local Government Council, to other capacities that he had opportunities to serve in the state.

The increasing calls for Governor Wike to run for the office of President of Nigeria is a soft reminder that his tenure as Governor of Rivers State is coming to an end. The prayer of many a Rivers man, is that, a fit and proper person like Engr. Emeka Woke be favoured to step in, for continuity in the implementation of the New Rivers Vison.

Engr. Woke stands taller than many because he is fair minded and detribalized. He also has a record of performing his duties with distinction, and these qualities project the Emohua – born politician as a man that can be trusted to deliver even in difficult times.
