Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, on Tuesday, said his administration will provide the necessary logistics support needed for the military to carry out its constitutional duty if the military avoids the influence of politicians as they discharge their duties.

The governor who spoke at the Government House, Port Harcourt when he granted audience to the General Officer Commanding, GOC, 82 Division, Enugu, Major General Ibrahim Attahiru, stressed that his administration will always collaborate with the Military to maintain peace and security in the state.

He said, “In carrying out your activities, you should be careful so that politics does not come into it.

“Rivers State is important to the economy of the nation. Therefore, the peace of this state is critical. This administration will never support anything that will make the state ungovernable”.

In his response, General Attahiru commended Wike for his support to the 2 Brigade of the Nigerian Army.
