The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commissioned a multi-million naira Ultra Modern Multi-Purpose Hall located at the State Party Secretariat along Aba Road in the state capital, Port Harcourt.

Speaking Friday at the event, the State Party Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah, described the party as a vehicle for sustainable socio-economic development, good governance and effective service delivery. He said that while striving to achieve that, the party leadership and members must imbibe party discipline, the right value system and good ethical conduct, which are necessary tools for such transformation.

Obuah commended the efforts of the State Governor, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, other party leaders and stakeholders for the success of the party in the state and their support for the completion of the project. He reiterated the continued commitment of the leadership of the party in ensuring the success of PDP in the state.

Obuah called on all party functionaries and public officers (elected or appointed) on the platform of the party to be guided by the party’s manifesto, rules and regulations as provided in the constitution of the PDP 2012 (as amended). He stressed that no individual or groups, no matter how highly placed is bigger than the party. “The party is supreme and will remain as such,” he said.

The PDP Chairman also called on all party faithful serving in different capacities to see such opportunities as platform to render service to the state, and to endeavour to pay their monthly dues. “I charge you all to always be willing to contribute towards the growth and wellbeing of the party. As without which, our stay in government will be fruitless and any effort in futility is worthless. As leaders of the party in the State, we shall continue to uphold the tenets and foundational principles already established for us by our founding fathers,” he said.

Speaking shortly after commissioning the project, Governor Wike commended the leadership of the party under Bro. Obuah for being focused, supportive and completing such meaningful and gigantic edifice, saying he was surprised to see the project completed. “I am truly surprised because the Chairman only mentioned it once to me, only for me to come here today to commission an already completed edifice,” he said.

Commenting on the recent Appeal Court judgment nullifying his election, Governor Wike alleged that there is a grand plot to take Rivers State at all cost. He explained that although the party is not afraid of participating in any re-run election provided it is conducted without external influence and intimidation, it will exhaust its legal options by approaching the apex court following the ruling of the Court of Appeal.

Governor Wike however warned against rigging in the event of any re-run, stressing that the party will not fold its hands and watch anyone rig election against the will of the people.

While calling on the teeming supporters and party faithful not to be disillusioned by the decision of the Appeal Court, he called on them to remain calm and go about their normal businesses and not make trouble.
