“They told us that one dollar will be equivalent to one Naira, today because the economy is so battered, all our professionals are leaving in droves, people are crying for security from the North East, North Central, North West, everywhere. Rivers State is the safest State to live and do business now in this Country, and that is because we have a leader in the person of Governor Wike”, Banigo added.
