“The people of Rivers State will continue to benefit from the pro-people projects and programmes of this administration.

"We are determined to always to live up to the social contract we entered with the Rivers people” Wike said.

The governor thanked all Rivers people for their faith in him and his administration.

He has meanwhile extended a hand of fellowship to the candidate of the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Dakuku Peterside.

He praised Peterside for approaching the judiciary, instead of embarking on violence.

Peterside and APC had disputed the outcome of the poll held in 2015 citing irregularities and violence.

Late last year, the Court of Appeal nullified Wike's victory.
