The Chairman of Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro. Felix Obuah has again commended the State Governor, Nyesom Wike, over what he described as solid and landmark achievements across the state particularly in Ogoniland.
Obuah stated this while reacting to a special thanksgiving Church service in Bori, headquarters of Ogoniland on Sunday, September 10, 2017, to appreciate God for the re-run election in the state, “notwithstanding the macabre tale certain unprogressive and undemocratic elements turned the exercise into.”
The State PDP boss, according to a statement, noted with pride that Governor Wike has impressively kept faith with the yearnings and expectations of the Ogonis within the two years he has spent in office and is still counting.
“He recalled Governor Wike’s landmarks in Ogoniland to include the dualisation of Saakpenwa – Bori – Kono Road, which transverses the three Ogoni Local Government Areas of Tai, Khana and Gokana, completion of Kpopie/Bodo Road, reconstruction and equipment of Zonal Hospital in Bori, the reconstruction and modelling of Birabi Memorial Grammar School (BMGS) to a Model College, general renovation of Schools in Ogoni Communities and most significantly, the appointment of Ogoni sons, and daughters into positions of trust in his administration, describing those who feign ignorance of these laudable achievements as the real enemies of the Ogoni people.”
The State PDP boss thanked the people of Ogoni for the warm reception accorded the state Chief Executive during the Church service and noted with pride the resilience of the Ogoni people against the plot and threats of some self-seeking politicians whom he said are bent on thwarting their collective will for their own personal interests.
Obuah, while reassuring them of greater government presence and development project in Ogoni, also enjoined them to remain steadfast in their support for the PDP.
“Your indomitable spirit is not in doubt and is noted nationwide. We are grateful to you for believing in us and to the glory of God, we have not disappointed you. In the days ahead, more developmental projects will be extended to all nooks and crannies of Ogoni because you do not deserve anything less. I thank God, you have all discovered from the actions and reactions of the opposition in the state and as the party driving the ship at the national level, the untold hardships it has inflicted on Nigerians, that there is no alternative to the PDP. The decision is now yours whether to remain with the democratic forces led by our amiable governor, ‘Mr. Project’, Chief Barr. Nyesom Wike or to drown with the visionless APC,” Obuah declared.
