A group in the Ikwerre Ethnic Nationality of Rivers State known as Iwhuruohna First Movement IWF, has urged the governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, to channel his attention towards industrialization in order to take the youths off the street.
The group, believed to be a non-governmental organization accused the governor of prioritizing flyover construction over human capital development.
This is coming shortly after a group of supporters of the Wike’s led administration posited that natives of Rivers State will not forget the governor because of the numerous flyovers constructed across the capital city, Port Harcourt.
IWF is clamouring for the creation of factories, capable of employing good number of youths in order to take them out of poverty.
According to leader of the group, Mr. Ihuanne John, “we clamour for change that could pull youths off the street and place them in a better state of living. However, the Rivers State Government led by His Excellency, Chief Barr. Ezenwo Nyesom Wike and other political leaders, have deliberately refused to give ear to our plea.
“It is on this note that we have come to the public, to draw global attention to the fact that youths are not being carried along by the ruling class in the state. We also made it clear in our statement, that our supreme leader, Emeka Irhuohna and his Austria counterparts, had established this issue of industrialization to the governor of Rivers State.
“Governor Wike who preferred building flyover round the city of Port Harcourt instead of getting into human capital development projects, it is, as a matter of urgency, that the group reminds His Excellency to consider the plight of his children, create factories that are capable of employing good number of youths.”
Ihuanne added that, “our political leaders have used political parties to regroup the youths into enemies, hence they sing praise over a campaign T-shirt and caps.”
