A former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Prince Chibudom Nwuche, has urged political leaders in Rivers State and the South South in general to eschew bitterness and be their brother’s keeper.  Nwuche stated this while speaking on behalf of Rivers State Elder Statesmen at Expo Convention Centre of Eko Hotels in Lagos, during the 17th edition of the Annual Sun Awards at which the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, was conferred with the Sun Governor of the Year Award.

In a statement from his office, Nwuche urged political leaders in the South South to stop denigrating and running down each other saying such negative tendencies were affecting development in the Niger Delta region. Nwuche commended Wike whom he described as “a true statesman” for his developmental strides in Rivers State, a testimony that earned him the Sun Governor of the Year for two consecutive times, an honour he described as well deserved.  He urged Governor Wike to see the award as a morale booster to do more for the people of Rivers irrespective of whether they were APC or PDP, saying that was the reason for governance.

“Niger Delta leaders should celebrate each other instead of only celebrating outsiders. It’s a shame when Niger Delta leaders keep setting up, blackmailing and using security agencies and fighting each other instead of using their positions to develop the region and its people,” he said, adding that they must draw a line between politics and governance.
