His excellency, the executive governor of Rivers State, Chief Ezenwo Nyesom Wike has transformed the state in several ways following the delivery of quality and World-class projects in Rivers State.

The Rivers State governor, who is popularly addressed as "Mr. Project" was earlier announced as the award winner of the governorship blueprint newspaper and the outstanding governor of the year in terms of project constructions in Rivers State.

Governor Nyesom Wike's administration is not just focused on a particular set of people neither a particular local government area, his transformation is all around the twenty-one local government areas of Rivers State.

The reason why many Rivers' citizens claim that the Rivers State governor is only focused on developing Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor local government areas, is because those are the nearby local government areas, the capital of the state, and his local government area respectively.

However, apart from executing good projects in Rivers State, such as good roads, flyovers, schools, health care facilities, and others, the Rivers State governor is yet to fulfill the promise he made to Rivers' people for almost a year now.

Recall that the Rivers State governor promised the youths of the state that his administration will employ not less than five thousand civil servants in the state.

The Rivers State governor made this statement in November last year. Following the announcement made by the Rivers State government, over ten thousand indigenous and non-indigenous people of Rivers State applied for the job, hoping to be employed soon by the Rivers State government.

Unfortunately, the year ended without any employment granted to the Rivers' citizens. And now, it is getting to a year ever since the Rivers State governor promised to employ the citizens, meanwhile, the standard of living is on the increase, coupled with the hardships and sufferings in the pandemic era.
