Gov Wike deserves support - Sultan

 
The Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar II, has urged Muslims in Rivers State to sup­port Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike in his efforts to transform the state.
The eminent monarch made the appeal during an interaction with Muslims in Port Harcourt on Tuesday.
He also asked them to pray for Wike to succeed in office.
Sultan Abubakar said that af­ter the political campaigns, the residents of the state, Muslims in­clusive, should line up behind the governor to move Rivers forward.
He said: “Now that the cam­paigns are over, you should sup­port the leader to succeed; if the leader succeeds, the communi­ty benefits. If the leader fails, the community suffers the conse­quences.”
The monarch also urged the Rivers Muslims to live in peace with their hosts.
Earlier, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Niger Delta De­velopment Commission (NDDC), Alhaji Mohammed Aribitonye, thanked the Sultan for the meet­ing, which he noted would lift the spirit of Muslims in the state.
He said that Rivers is peace­ful and working because Gover­nor Wike is promoting religious harmony.
Meanwhile, the All Nigeria Confederation of Principals of Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS) has commended Wike for the massive transformation of the ed­ucational sector in the state.
ANCOPSS National Presi­dent, Mr. Anselm Izuagie, spoke at the Sharks Stadium in Port Har­court, during the opening cer­emony of the association’s 60th annual national congress.
Izuagie said that Governor Wike, in his short stay in office had brought development to the educa­tional sector and also transformed the entire state.
The ANCOPSS President also appreciated the governor for the regular payment of teachers’ sala­ries and appointment of principals as permanent secretaries.
He requested that the gover­nor should adhere to the demand of its members in Rivers, especial­ly as it borders on security and payment of impress to principals of government owned schools in the state.
Earlier, the President of the state chapter of ANCOPSS, Iroeg­bu Austin, highlighted the devel­opmental strides of the state gov­ernment in the education sector and requested that the government addressed the challenges teachers face from miscreants and parents.
