Employ Rivers indigenes in top positions – Wike

Nyesom Wike, the Rivers State governor says his administration has tackled issues of multiple taxation to encourage economic growth.

Governor Wike also urged corporate organisations to partner with the Rivers State Government for the empowerment of the people.

The governor said this on Thursday during a courtesy visit by the management of Airtel Nigeria.

According to him, “We have worked hard to reduce multiple taxation. If you run into any problems with any local government area, get in touch and we will resolve them.

“If investors go away, our people will not be employed. So, we will provide an enabling environment that is conducive for investors to thrive”.

Governor Wike charged corporate organisations to always employ Rivers indigenes in top positions and also avoid cutting corners in their operations, adding that the investment climate of the state has improved because of the efforts of his administration to create opportunities for the people.
