Rivers State governor and Chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Mr. Chibuike Amaechi, has said that despite comments by detractors against his government, God will continue to strengthen him to deliver dividends of democracy to the people of the state.
Governor Amaechi, who spoke, Sunday night in Port Harcourt, at a special thanksgiving service to dedicate the state to God, said his administration will continue to depend on God, as it strives tirelessly to build a new Rivers State to better the lives of the people.
He said: “We need to tell our critics that development is not only about roads, but the projects that impact on the lives of the poor. What about education, health, power, water? But unto God, every day is thanksgiving. I am ready for a debate with all those who criticise what we have done in the state. They should tell us what they have done with the position they held. I am open to debate with all those people and I will show them what I have done.”
