Ahead of next saturday’s Governorship and House of Assembly elections, Niger Delta Activist, Asari Dokubo has revealed what he wants the next Governor of Rivers State to do.
Dokubo, in a statement on Wednesday, said he wants the next Governor to divert the resources of Rivers people to invest in the economy of the state and create wealth.
According to him, he does not want a governor who will be building flyovers without investing in the people and investing to make them strong.
Part of his statement reads,
“What i want the next governor to do is to divert the wealth of Rivers people to investment. To invest in the economy of Rivers State and to create wealth.
“That should be first and foremost to create wealth and that is the direction of Tonye Cole [the All Progressives Congress, APC gubernatorial candidate in Rivers State]. I would not want a governor who will be building flyovers, and so on or who will be building skyscrapers without investing in the people and investing to make them stronger.
To send Rivers people to be skilled people. If you come to Rivers State today, our people, when they finish their tertiary education, they are not employable because the schools did not provide a good environment for them to be employable.”
