Rivers State Givernor, Nyesom Wike, has called on prominent indigenes and Nigerians to stop de-marketing the state.
Speaking during the commissioning of the Port Harcourt International Airport Terminal on Thursday by President Muhammadu Buhari, Wike said that it was in the best interest of the entire South-South region, for investments to flow into Rivers State.
“I urge all of us who are from Rivers State and others from Nigeria to market Rivers State and not de-market it.
“With this people will come and invest in the state. Other airlines will also operate from this airport,” the Governor said.
Governor Wike also assured that Rivers State is safe and secure for investments, hence the execution of key projects without hitches.
“What has happened today showcases the fact that Rivers State is safe, Rivers State is secure for people to invest.
“If Rivers State is not safe, CCECC will not complete this project,” he added.
Wike urged Buhari to complete the domestic terminal of the Port Harcourt International Airport in line with his pledge.
