Good Governance will end clamour for restructuring says Gov. Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike (m), President of the Science Teachers Association of Nigeria (STAN), Mallam Mohammed Moulud and Executive Director of STAN, Prof Ben Akpan after the visit of STAN to Government House Port Harcourt on Tuesday.

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared  that nobody will clamour for the restructuring of the country   once the Federal Government adopts a just governance model.

He said that a governance model that emphasises  the equitable  distribution  of resources and projects will promote unity and the  rapid growth of the country.
Addressing the National Executive Council of the Science Teachers Association of Nigeria  (STAN) on Tuesday at the Government House Port Harcourt, Governor Wike said that unless the Federal Government takes the right steps to address developmental challenges, agitations for restructuring  will intensify.
He said: “Nobody will clamour for restructuring once things  are put in the right perspective.  Unless the right thing is done, the clamour for restructuring will never stop”.
The governor  explained that delivering credible elections at all levels will also help reduce  the level of agitations in the country.
According to him, credible  elections  will keep leaders on their toes  and make them work for the people, instead of the present situation  where leaders  fail to work, but rely on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and the Police to help them rig elections.
He said: “If rigging is eliminated from the  system and the will of the people matters, leaders  will sit up and work for their communities.  However, INEC and the Police form obstacles  to credible  elections in Nigeria”.
Governor Wike pointed out that all Nigerians must work together  to address the challenges  in the country.
He also advocated the enthronement  of merit  in the country, stressing that the relegation  of merit  in critical areas has  led to failure and under-development.
The Science Teachers are in Rivers State for their 60th Anniversary.
