Asari Dokubo, a former leader of militants in the Niger Delta, has spoken out about what he wants from the next Governor of Rivers State, who will take over from Gov. Nyesom Wike.
Dokubo said on Wednesday’s The Morning Show on Arise Television that he wants the next Governor of Rivers State to invest the state’s money.
He said he doesn’t want the next governor to spend money on building flyovers instead of putting money into the people and making them stronger.
Dokubo said, “What I want the next governor to do is to divert the wealth of Rivers people to investment. To invest in the economy of Rivers State and to create wealth.
“That should be first and foremost to create wealth, and that is the direction of Tonye Cole [the All Progressives Congress, APC gubernatorial candidate in Rivers State]. I would not want a governor who will be building flyovers and so on or who will be building skyscrapers without investing in the people and investing to make them stronger.
“To send Rivers people to be skilled people. If you come to Rivers State today, our people, when they finish their tertiary education, they are not employable because the schools did not provide a good environment for them to be employed.”
