In honour of his monumental achievements and legacies, the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has renamed the RIVERS STATE POLYTECHNIC in Bori as KEN ULE BEESON SAROWIWA POLYTECHNIC. The governor remarked that the memories of avatars like the late Sarowiwa who fought selflessly for the betterment of society and humanity should not be consigned to oblivion. More so, he reasoned, when such personalities are revered beyond
the shores of the country.
Signposting the achievements of the late Sarowi wa-especially as the former Sole Administrator of Bonny and the first commissioner for education in Rivers State,
Gov.Wike recalled with nostalgia, the role of the late Sarowiwa in the Niger Delta struggle that eventually consumed him. That,the governor insists, is one monument that can never be obliterated. “This literary giant must not be left unsong. He was a known and respected environmental activist whose efforts exposed the marginalisation of the Niger Delta and
attracted international attention to the region.”Gov Wike concluded.
