The executive governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has said that he must “step on toes” in order to make the state better.

Gov. Wike revealed this on Monday evening during the submission of report by the Committee for Accreditation and Approval of Private Schools in Rivers at the Government House, Port Harcourt.

Wike also said that he is yet to form his cabinet because he is still looking for committed people who will work with passion and dedication and passion for Rivers state.

“I have not formed my cabinet because I am taking my time to monitor and look at people who would work with passion for Rivers State,” he said.

“Politics is involved, but you must be ready to work for the state. That is why you see that there is a delay in the formation of the cabinet. No matter the criticism, I will do what is right.

“We must work to move Rivers State forward. In doing that, we must step on toes. We can’t allow the state to be the way it is.

“I believe that with the calibre of persons who served in the committee, you have done a good job. I have confidence in the committee.”

He also explained that he’ll set up the committee because of the urgent need to check the downward slide of private schools in the state.

He said:

“People have unnecessarily commercialized education. They have become traders in the field of education. We will not allow that to continue.

“All those schools that you have denied accreditation, even the ones you have approved, I will look at them again. But specifically, the ones you have denied. They will not function in this state.”
