The newly appointed Special Assistants and thousands of supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party filled the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Omagwa to witness the historic event.

This mass appointment is the first of its kind in Rivers State.

It started with the inauguration of appointees from the Rivers South East and Rivers West Senatorial Districts.

The appointment of 100,000 special assistants is still eliciting mixed reactions with many persons questioning Governor Wike’s reason for the move.

But apparently unmoved by the controversy, the Governor has doubled that number to 200,000.

As Governor Nyesom Wike prepares to handover to his successor, he says he will pay closer attention to the welfare of residents of Rivers State.

The job of the 200,000 Special Assistants to the Governor is to serve as middlemen between the people at the polling unit level and the state government.
