Grassroots development initiatives(GDI) has appealed to the indigenes of Rivers State In diaspora to come home enmasse to participate in the 2019 general elections and vote massively for the continuation of the progressive and all-inclusive government of Governor Nyesom Wike.
At a meeting of Nigerians in diaspora held at Kempton Park, West Street in Johannesburg, South Africa, the convener of GDI, Pastor Egba B. H Egba, said that the group is particularly happy with Governor Wike for making river state a first destination for foreign investments in Nigeria. “His all-inclusive developmental projects have made considerable impact on the economy of the state.”
Egba, who doubles as the President of the Union of Rivers State Indigenes in South Africa and the founder of N. E. W. Prayer squad for the mobilisation of 1.8 million Christians for the re-election of Governor Nyesom Wike come 2019, commended him for the relief he has brought to Rivers State students who are on scholarship studying various courses abroad. “But for Governor Wike, many students would have been stranded”. Pastor Egba also commended the Governor for insisting that courses available in Nigeria would no more qualify for overseas scholarship. This has saved the state considerable cost,” Egba said.
He used the occasion to assure indigenes of Rivers State in diaspora that His Excellency, Nyesom Wike will continue to keep the welfare of state indigenes at heart at home and abroad. The event was rounded up with those in attendance feasting on their favorite Nigerian delicacies as they shower praises to God for giving them Wike.
