Gov. WIKE & Wife Display Love In Public

You may not believe this that the tough-talking Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, is after all, a loving family man to the core with such passion and emotional balance, which make him concentrate on giving people of Rivers State value for good governance as he is popular with his nickname MR. PROJECTS.

There is no public function which has the number one couple of Rivers State in attendance without the governor taking up his hands to beckon his wife, Justice Suzette Eberechi Wike, as a way of showing members of the public that he is a caring father and husband, who does not neglect keeping his home front in order. With this, he is not only encouraging other couples in the state to emulate him and provide emotional balance with their spouses, but also telling them to do like him.

If you think that planting a kiss on wife publicly is fake, try and see how deep the Rivers State governor displays his love for his wife at public functions, which has a mark of assurance per se and it is usually, fulfilling indeed.

Ethically, Governor Wike is correct as his “handlers” must have given him a thumb up for doing it for the first time and sensing how rewarding the reactions from his citizens must have been, keeps doing it regularly. He is not the only kissing public officer as the United States of America (USA’s) First Lady Barbara Bush in her autobiography entitled: MEMOIRS-BARBARA BUSH (1994) did explain thus: 

“There were always innuendoes that we were not lovey-dovey enough in public. That is not us. We don’t need to be public about our affection; it’s just there. I know that perception is very important in public life, but I also know that people can spot fakes. It may take a while, but eventually they do. We both resisted the handlers request that we hold hands or whatever”.

It is in this regard for care for women in the state that Governor Wike made sure that all the Deputy Chairmen of 23 Local Government Councils in his People’s Democratic Party- PDP are women and one of them is heading Asari Toru Local Government Council as a result of the death of Odiari Princewill during the 

Coronavirus pandemic lockdown. In the executive cabinet, where apart from the traditional Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, women are heading other Ministries such as Culture and Tourism where Mrs. Tonye Briggs-Oniyide is holding sway.
