As political activities heighten across the country, the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State, Bro. Felix Obuah has expressed optimism that Governor Wike would win for another term if he accepts the calls to run in 2019.
Bro. Obuah in a statement in Port Harcourt said the cumulation of events in the State would guarantee victory for Governor Wike.
He noted that while other political parties in the State, especially the main opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) were busy bandying lies and unfounded propaganda against Governor Wike with the aim of deceiving the people, the governor has responded with executing and commissioning more and more projects.
He said that the Governor had within three years of his successful first term, made phenomenal achievements in all sectors of the economy.
The PDP Chairman emphasized that Wike had demystified governance, adding that for the first time in the history of the State, a sitting Governor has successfully won the hearts of Rivers people across ethnic, religious, economic and socio-political divides.
“You could see that all ethnic groups have endorsed him for a second term; so have all the religious organizations, women and youths groups as well as traditional rulers and the non-indigenes including members of the opposition parties”, he said, adding that the development was a humble way of showing their appreciation for a job well done.
“Rivers people are happy with Governor Wike and that explains the increased clamour for him to run in 2019 so as to continue with the good job.
“The people are right because APC has demonstrated that it represents nothing but starvation, nepotism and wanton destruction of lives and properties. APC is not an option and has no good plans for Nigeria and Rivers State in particular”, Bro. Obuah stated.
He emphasized that APC lacked any moral justification to canvass for votes in Rivers State, following what he called the deliberate plans by the federal government to strangulate its economy.
“How could they expect votes in Rivers State when they have deliberately abandoned the Port Harcourt International Airport and seaport to rot away, knowing that these are important and veritable sources to boost the economy of the State”, he posited.
Bro. Obuah further stated that Governor Wike has done so much for the people, adding that they cannot wait for 2019 to have him back at the Brick House.
According to the State PDP Chairman, the Governor ‘broke the records’ when he finally laid to rest the upland/riverine dichotomy, a situation he said, regrettably promoted ethnic hatred amongst the people of the State.
