Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint people like the Minister of Youth and Sports,Solomon Dalung, into his cabinet.

Wike said this during a courtesy visit by the Minister to the Government House in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

He commended the Minister’s commitment to the development of a united Nigeria irrespective of party affiliation, adding that he has shown an uncommon courage in allowing Rivers State to host the National Wrestling Championship and the African Wrestling Championship in 2018.

“If we have Ministers like you, nobody will be talking about political parties. People like you work well for Mr President; people like you are the ones Mr President needs to move the country forward.

“What you have done for Rivers State is not what money can buy. You have by this action introduced a positive change for Rivers State – you are telling the world that Rivers State is peaceful and a place to invest,” Wike said.

He also commended the President of the Nigerian Wrestling Federation, Daniel Igali, for his decision to promote the hosting of the championship in the state.
