“Remember that Rivers is your home. Come home to join in the development of young talents here.

Wike said: “Today is one of the happiest days in my life. You may not understand. So many factors come into play. At least, as a governor in my time Rivers State produced a Grammy award winner, as far as music is concerned in the entire world. “Also, the state produced the most beautiful girl in Nigeria. What is key to let us to know that Rivers State and Niger Delta has a lot of potentials. When you have opportunity like this you thank God for what he has done for Rivers State.

Wike stated that the state would support any talent that is interested facing his or her career in the industry, adding that time has come when the state would look inward to improve in entertainment. He said:

“How many of you are interested in us showing you how to fish? How many of you are patient? Some of you come to politics to make quick money. How many of you are ready to be patient to learn? “Today, I will not give you fish, but I will teach you how to fish. The time has come when we must look inward and come home. Home is home. “We are here to support anybody who wants to excel. We will not support those who only want to clap hands. We must give you the necessary support.”
