Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State has begged the British government to support his administration in developing the State Neighbourhood Safety Corps Agency.
The governor made this appeal on Friday at the Government House in Port Harcourt, capital of the state while hosting the United Kingdom Department for International Development Team.
He was quoted saying: “Virtually all states in Nigeria have security challenges. We have established the Neighbourhood Safety Corps Agency to help the security agencies with critical information to fight crime.”
“Such information will help the security agencies nip crimes in the bud. We need assistance for the provision of necessary security training aids for operatives of the Neighbourhood Safety Corps Agency”.
He also spoke on Agricultural development in the state
“One of our key areas of priority is agriculture. We want to partner with you to develop all forms of agriculture. This is necessary because we are interested in using agriculture to create employment for our youths. In this sector, we are looking at crop farming, fishery and poultry.”
