Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike reopens House of Assembly complex

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesome Wike, on Tuesday reopened the House of Assembly complex that had been shut down for almost two years following crisis that engulfed the House.

The reopening of the complex in Port Harcourt, the state’s capital, brought together a crowd of men and women who staged a red carpet reception for the governor of the state.

Although cameramen could not gain access into the complex due to the crowd, the reopening came as a big relief for many people who gathered at the complex to witness the occasion.

The governor told the gathering that the event was in keeping with one of his campaign promises to ensure that lawmakers in the state would no longer have their sitting anywhere else apart from the hallowed chamber.

According to him, the lawmakers will
not just be an appendage of government but a functional arm of government.
