Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said that the reason why he is yet to form his cabinet is that he is seeking for committed people who will work with dedication and passion.
Wike explained that he is yet to form his cabinet because he was seeking for passionate and dedicated persons to appoint.
He further went on to say that he isn’t bothered by the criticisms levelled against him because he is committed to doing what was right for the State.
Governor Wike spoke when the Committee for Accreditation and Approval of Private Schools in Rivers State submitted its report at the Government House in Port Harcourt.
“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.
“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.”
Moreover, he said that the main focus of his administration was to sustain the development of Rivers State.
According to him, he has set up the Committee for Accreditation and Approval of Private Schools in Rivers State because of the urgent necessity to check the downward slide of private schools in the state.
“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.
“People have unnecessarily commercialised education. They have become traders in the field of education. We will not allow that to continue,” he said.
