Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has stated that elections were over and it was time to fulfil the campaign promises he made to people of the state.

According to a statement signed by his Media Aide, Simeon Nwakaudu, Wike made this known while receiving the Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim at the Government House Port Harcourt.

The Rivers State governor also said he was not in any contest or fight with the electorate.

“We are here to assist. We are not fighting with anybody. We are here to complement the efforts of the Government,” Wike said.

“Politics has come and politics has gone. We have won the election here, they have lost. But they have won in other places. Politics has ended and we are now talking about governance.”

Speaking on NYSC in Rivers State, Wike urged corp members to serve in the various state they are posted to instead of looking for means to return back to their states.

He assured that the Rivers State Government will continue to promote the welfare of Corps Members serving in the state.

Wike also said his administration is still willing to assist the family of the corps member killed during the rerun elections.
