Rivers State Governor, Nyesome Wike, has stated that when communities support the government, they attract more developmental projects that are better than cash gifts.
The Governor reportedly made this submission at the inauguration of Tombia Road Extension in Obio-Akpor on Tuesday, adding that the project is another fulfilment of a promise made to them.
According to him, “One of the communities that have always supported the PDP is the Rumueme community. It is a community that when they say they’re with you, they’re with you.”
He added that, “If the Nigerian Law School opens tomorrow, Rumueme will be a household name all over Nigeria. It is not only money that you get and you think you have got a dividend. But the name alone that so and so institution, or establishment is in your community, money cannot buy it.”
Meanwhile, the governor also noted that the best way to ensure that those promises are fulfilled was to hold politicians accountable for what they say and do.
