The political ovation for Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, one of the top producers of oil and gas in the Niger Delta area where abject poverty is a disturbing feature, came louder again on Sunday.

Former Attorney General of Adamawa State, Professor Maxwell Gidado (SAN), on Saturday declared that the big oil state is lucky to have an action governor who is committed to the rapid development of the state.

Before Gidado, the first Vice President of the Nigerian Law School Class 1984, Bukhari Bello had said that he was impressed with what he has seen since they arrived in the state.

“I wish the government and people of Rivers State more progress to make Rivers a state it should be. I wish the state more success and progress in the years ahead,” he said.

Governor Wike took out time to present gifts to lawyers of the set who have clocked 60 years.

The state Arts and Culture Troupe, the Famous Owembe Dance Troupe and Arinze Baba the comedian entertained guests at the event.

It was a state dinner organised in honour of the Nigerian Law School Class of 1984 at the Government House Port Harcourt after their delegates conference on Saturday.

Professor Gidado hailed Governor Wike for key developmental projects in the state. According to him, “Rivers is lucky to have an action governor in Wike. In the next four or five years, Rivers will be on a course of greater development.

“This is a state to watch. An oil rich state with all the resources, culture and good people,” pointing out that with what members of the class of 1984 of the Nigerian Law School saw during project inspection, Rivers is on the right path.

“I am saying with all air of sincerity, that when they took us round, it was as if one was driving through the streets of London, with street lights well lit. I can say that Rivers State is on the right track. And I pray that my children will also come here for youth service like I did.”
