Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike has described himself as a promise keeper, saying such attribute should be the hall mark of every successful politician.

The Governor spoke while inaugurating phase two of internal roads in Okochiri kingdom in Okrika Local Government Area and Elekahia community in Port Harcourt on Friday.

Wike, who commenced another round of project inaugurations a few days to the end of his second term, boasted that he had kept all promises he made to his people.

He recalled how he had, during his first tenure, started and completed the first phase of internal roads in Okochiri, with a promise that the second phase would also be inaugurated in his second tenure.

He said: “To the glory of God, we are here today, promise made, promise fulfilled. I’m sure, Amanyanabo, (of Okochiri) you’ll now know, we are not those politicians that will make promise without fulfilling the promise.

“I’m sure, it has made your kingdom to be one of the areas that benefited from good road network. Coming here, you won’t know that here is not part of the city. But with the internal roads now, you can say for sure, you are trying to compete with those of us who are from the city.”

Wike reiterated that he was a man of conscience, who was bonded by his words and returned to fulfill promises made.

He said such attribute had marked him out from other politicians, who were not bothered about the import of their political promises made to the people.
