Rivers State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro. Felix Obuah, has called on the people of the state to remain resolute in their support for the Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike administration even as he continues to provide quality and credible leadership.

Bro. Obuah, who spoke at a reception for the All Progressives Congress (APC) members who decamped to PDP in Emohua on Sunday, told the mammoth crowd that the good job which the Governor is doing all over the state is a valid testimony that Wike is indeed a ‘promise keeper’.

He recalled that Wike had during his campaigns ahead of the 2015 governorship election assured that his administration would bring development to all the nooks and crannies of the state. Obuah noted that the Governor has not only kept his promises but has also performed beyond expectations, as evidenced by the numerous laurels to his credit from national and international bodies.

The State PDP Chairman, who was visibly overwhelmed at the rally, where over 2,000 members of both APC and Labour Party (LP) defected to PDP, said the event was a pointer that Wike is truly working.

Bro. Obuah at the rally regretted “the eight years of bitter pills which former Governor Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi foisted on Rivers people in the name of governance.” He stressed that less than three years in office, Governor Wike has demonstrated that good governance is possible through relentless effort at executing needed projects for the people.

“Governor Wike has given to every Riversman and woman a sense of pride. Our state has been rebranded and we can now proudly showcase our identity as Rivers people, to the admiration of others,” Obuah declared at the rally.

He said it was in the light of these that the people of the state are enjoined not to waiver in their support for the Governor but to take advantage of the ongoing Voters Registration Exercise and obtain their Permanent Voters Card as, according to him, the PVC remains the only instrument needed to reenact what they did in 2015 and return Governor Wike to power again come 2019.

His words: “I appreciate and congratulate you all for taking a bold step to make the right decision.  It is a wise decision you have made for yourselves and posterity as those parties you left only exist on the pages of newspapers.

“APC has nothing to offer Rivers people.  Our common resources for eight years under Amaechi were plundered and even today that APC is in control at the national level, they have abandoned Rivers people.  Our airport and seaport have been abandoned and the people from the State who have been given federal appointments have also abandoned the State and pursuing their selfish interests”.

Bro. Obuah told the people of Emohua Local Government Area to remain focused and not subscribe to any form of blackmail from the APC and their masters, assuring that so much lies in the kitties of Governor Wike to bring more developmental projects in the area but added that “to whom much is given, much is also expected.”
