At the head of any component state in Nigeria is a chief executive referred to as a governor. He is at the helm of the administrative and managerial affairs of the state. Like the federal government, the state has three arms of government- the legislature, the executive and the judiciary. 

The Current Rivers State Executive Council  

The Rivers State executive council is composed of an elected executive governor, the deputy governor and commissioners appointed by the executive governor to man the affairs of the various ministries of government.

Edostate.gov.ng

Edo Stateis one of the states in the Niger Delta with 18 local government councils. It is populated by different ethnic groups among which are Edo, Ishan, and Etsako. Edo State is known for ancient bronze works. Benin which was the headquarters ofBenin Empire is the capital city of Edo State. The people are known for arts and craft and farming. The recent political situation in the state whereby power was wrested from the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) by the less popular Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) is an indication of political enlightenment of its peoples. It is the only state in the south- South of Nigeria with a reasonable number of Muslim population. A fresh local government election was held on April 20, 2013 and the ACN clinched virtually all the positions in the local council.

Cross River State was created on May 27, 1967 from the former Eastern Region, Nigeria by the General Yakubu Gowon regime. Its name was changed to Cross River State in the 1976 state creation exercise by the then General Murtala Mohammed regime from South Eastern State. The present day Akwa Ibom State was excised from it in the state creation exercise of September 1987 by the then regime of General Ibrahim Babangida. The State is composed of three major ethnic groups: the Efik, the Ejagham, and the Bekwarra. The Efik language is widely spoken in Cross River State, and as far as Arochukwu in neighboring Abia state. The current governor Liyel Imoke served from May 29, 2007 to July 14, 2008 and from August 26, 2008 to the present. The state is a major tourist centre because of the beautiful landscape adorned with lush vegetation and attractive physical features. It is referred to as the people’s paradise.
