Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has presented 15 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado VX and TXL to lawmakers representing the State at the National Assembly and urged them to defend the interest of the State fearlessly.

He has therefore advised them to resist distraction, remain united and consult the party regularly.

Wike gave the charge at a brief ceremony for the presentation of 15 Land Cruiser Prado VX and TXL cars to members of the National Assembly at Government House, Port Harcourt.

The Governor was represented by the Rivers State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ambassador Desmond Akawor.

Wike said the gesture would ease their movement and enable them to discharge their legislative duties effectively.

He urged them to keep faith with the Party so they could collectively recover what was lost at the national during the forthcoming 2023 general election.

Responding on behalf of the lawmakers, the Senator representing Rivers East Senatorial District, Senator George Thompson Sekibo expressed gratitude to the Governor for the gift.

He noted that despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic on the state finances, the Governor still saved funds to provide them vehicles.

The member representing Khana/Gokana Federal Constituency, Hon. Dumnamene Deekor commended the Governor’s benevolence.

He said the governor has been consistent in encouraging the federal legislators to protect the interest of Rivers people.

Also speaking, the member representing Obio/Akpor Federal Constituency, Hon. Kingsley Ogundu Chinda assured the governor of their continued support.

On her part, Hon. Boma Goodhead who represents Akuku-Toru/Asari-Toru Federal Constituency prayed for greater triumph for the Governor because he has always integrated the National Assembly members in the scheme of things.

In his reaction, Hon. Awaji-Inombek Abiante representing Andoni/Opobo-Nkoro Federal Constituency said they would reciprocate the gesture by representing Rivers people well in Abuja.

Also speaking, the Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Tammy Danagogo said there is healthy synergy between the national lawmakers and the state government.

He said the synergy is made possible because Wike has remained a leader who unifies all segments of leaders.



  1. This arrogant governor is wasting public money meant for development and the same people are clapping hands for him. Why are the black people especially Nigerians so devilish?. How do these vehicles purchased in River state benefit the masses?. To me Wike is the most stupid governor I have ever seen. He is enriching individuals who have already made it – the judges and legislators. The next set of people will be his cabinet members, I think so. Foolishness of the highest order. Father Christmas governor !!!

  2. Shame on these people, this is what they are doing with the money being given to them to develop Niger Delta? exporting the money to foreign jurisdictions, yeye people . What value does this add to the people?

  3. First the judges and now the law makers. May be Wike will present private jets to his commissioners! Yet River people live in abject poverty! Who do blacks offend?

  4. Prado SUV please. There is nothing like Prado Jeep. Prado is a model of Toyota (Japanese automobile company) while Jeep is an American automobile company

  5. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is how 200 million Nigerians going to get dividend of democracy.
    Vast majority of us can’t secure meaningful employment, schools, hospitals, infrastructure are nonfunctional. Resources are scarce and politicians are living life of Ultra luxury for themselves and their clones.
