The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has commissioned the ultra-modern Rivers State Cultural Centre completed by the administration of Governor Nyesom Wike on Saturday.
Wike said it is a facility for the promotion of culture, arts and tradition.
Speaking at the commissioning ceremony in the heart of Port Harcourt Township, Wike renamed the edifice as Rex Lawson Cultural Centre.
The Ooni of Ife appealed to the Nigerian leaders to set aside politics of bitterness and destruction and focus on service to the people.
“Your Excellency, God will continue to be with you. God will continue to be with the good people of Rivers State. How many leaders can execute and commission projects so close to the people? How many leaders can stand tall and speak so close to the people.
“Today, I am very proud to be associated with Mr Projects, the governor of Rivers State for the love he has for his people. I want other governors to learn from him”, the Ooni of Ife said.
