Let me use this opportunity to tell you. People should understand. Rivers State is very strong as far as this country is concerned
I have told people. Rivers State is not a dumping ground and will never be a dumping ground. If we give you support, we believe you can reciprocate, so nobody should threaten us, no political party can threaten Rivers State, not one.
“So all those who are opening their mouth in Abuja to threaten Rivers State, think twice before you have a problem.
