Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said that the state is one of the safest investment destinations in Nigeria.

Wike also said that claims of insecurity in the state are being sponsored by “a disgruntled political opposition.”

The governor made the comments via his Commissioner for Information and Communication, Dr Austin Tam-George who spoke to foreign journalists in Lagos.

“The narrative that Rivers State is unsafe is an ugly slander against the State by a disgruntled political opposition,” Tam-George said via a statement.

According to him, Wike also invited foreign and local investors to take advantage of the rapid developmental strides of his administration, to invest in all sectors of the State's economy, in order to  create jobs.
