The immediate past president of Nigeria, Mr Goodluck Jonathan, has described the Rivers State governor, Mr Nyesom Ezenwo Wike as “one of the best governors”.
Mr Jonathan said this during an interview with newsmen after his visit to Governor Wike, in Port Harcourt, on Sunday.
When asked of his assessment of the two-and-half years of the Wike administration, Jonathan described him as beyond reproach.
He said: “He is one of the best governors in terms of commitment and putting structures in ground.
“I have always say that for you to say you are doing well as a governor you must add value to whatever you met.
“He met certain structures and he improved on them. He has contributed roads and other infrastructure.
“He even invited me to commission one of roads and bridges during the state anniversary. That is why people call him Mr Project.”
When asked about a supposed meeting he came for, Jonathan said he was not in Port Harcourt for any meeting.
Rather, he said he was there to appreciate the support Wike gave him during the burial of his brother- in-law.
“He assisted us and he came physically with his deputy and some principal officers of the state,” he said in appreciation.
On the other hand, he commended the good work of the media, their objectivity reportage and sensitisation of the public.
“You have been playing your role especially as politics is involving and as we are going to different level,” he noted.
