Governor Wike makes history as he recieves the "Golden Key" into Opobo



Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on wednesday made history as he received the ‘Golden Key’ to the city of Opobo as the first governor to drive into the ancient island.
Amayanabo and Natural Ruler of Opobo Kingdom, King Dandeson Douglas-Jaja, who presented the Golden Key of Opobo kingdom to Wike, thanked the governor for constructing the road that has opened up the kingdom.

Jaja said: “Opobo people are happy that you have constructed this road into our town. This is a historic moment that the governor is the first to drive into the kingdom.”
He prayed God to continue to bless the governor and lift him up to greater heights for improving the area.

“This is the Golden Key into the historic city of Opobo. With this key, you are now a citizen of Opobo. You have all the rights of an Opobo citizen,” he said

Also speaking, Alabo Godwin Bupo said since 1870 when Opobo Town was founded, no governor has driven into the ancient island.
According to him, “By this singular act, you have made history which cannot be equaled. We remain grateful to you for keeping your promise to our people that they would drive home in December 2018.”

He noted that the new road is already positively impacting the economy of Opobo kingdom as wholesalers have started moving wares into the town.
