Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State believes the restructuring of  Nigeria’s political system will correct perceived anomalies in the country.

The governor said this when the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex socio-cultural organisation of Igbo people, paid him a courtesy call at Government House in Port Harcourt.

He declared that he would continue to advocate for true federalism because it would usher in equity and fairness.

The governor  also said he would continue to encourage harmonious co-existence and unity of the nation.

He commended the leadership of the association for its call for national security and unity.

Wike assured the group that his administration would provide the enabling environment to attract investments in the state.

He said that the Greater Port Harcourt Development project was open to people interested in investing in Rivers.

In his remarks, the President-General of the association, Chief John Nwodo, lauded the governor for the “massive” infrastructural development recorded by his administration.

Nwodo urged the governor to establish industries and provide land for members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in the diaspora wishing to invest in Rivers.

He noted that many Igbo people in the Diaspora wished to build schools and universities in Rivers but were constrained by the lack of land.
