He said, “I have not formed my cabinet because I am taking my time to monitor and look at people who would work with a passion for Rivers State.

“Politics is involved, but you must be ready to work for the state. That is why you see that there is a delay in the formation of the cabinet. No matter the criticism, I will do what is right.

“We must work to move Rivers State forward. In doing that, we must step on toes. We can’t allow the state to be the way it is.

“I believe that with the calibre of persons who served in the committee, you have done a good job. I have confidence in the committee.”

According to the governor, the Committee for Accreditation and Approval of Private Schools in Rivers State was established due to the urgent need to check the downward slide of private schools in Rivers.
