River State Governor, Nyesom Wike has vowed to prepare a handover note for his successor to ensure the person doesn’t end up like him who didn’t get any handover note.
Wike made this known after swearing in five new commissioners and assigned them portfolios at the Executive Chambers of Government in Port Harcourt on Saturday.
In a statement issued by his media aide, Kelvin Ebiri and made available to journalists, Wike urged the commissioners to put the records of their various ministries together and not wait till 29th May 2023.
The Governor said he was determined to do a proper handover to his successor, despite the fact that his predecessor did not do a proper handover to him.
He added that there’s a need for the different ministries to start compiling records of their activities from 2015 and not assume there is enough time.
The statement read: “Everybody should as a matter of fact put the records of their various ministries together.”
“You won’t wait till May 29, 2023. You have to start now since this administration started in 2015. State what we have done, and by the grace of God, when the new person (governor) comes, he will have a handover note and it will not be like me who didn’t get a handover note.”
“Everything we have done, all the records. What we have bought from ministry to ministry, you have to start compiling them.”
“I don’t want to hear a situation where you will say there is no time, there is plenty of time. You don’t need to wait till the last day. That is why things are difficult for some people.”
