Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has declared his support for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar for 2019 elections.

He spoke yesterday at the Government House, Port Harcourt, during a special thanksgiving service for the successful hosting of 2018 PDP National Convention.

His Special Assistant, Electronic Media Simeon Nwakaudu quoted the governor as revealing that he promoted the candidature of Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal at the convention.

He, however, added that he has accepted the party’s choice as the way forward.

Wike said: “I supported the Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal fully. I have no regrets for my support for Tambuwal.

“But the party has made a choice and as a loyal party man, I stand by the choice of the party. I will support His Excellency Atiku Abubakar to victory in 2019. That is what is called party loyalty.”

Wike said the All Progressives Congress (APC) has failed Nigeria, adding that Nigerians must work diligently towards sacking the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.

“We must put our heads together to ensure that this bad government is sacked. We must ensure that this bad government goes in 2019,” the governor said.

He said after the thanksgiving service, Nigerians must head to the fields to work for the PDP victory in 2019.

The governor noted that the PDP would win in Rivers State despite the machinations of the APC-led Federal Government.

He added that he would complete his mission in Rivers State through a resounding victory in 2019.

On the successful hosting of the National Convention, Wike noted that he stood his ground because of the Rivers State’s economy and the fact that the state remains the home of PDP since 1999.

The PDP National Chairman noted that after the party’s national convention, its leadership has been involved in fence-mending to bring all groups to work for victory in 2019.

He said Atiku is the best candidate to drive the country to growth and prosperity.

“APC will be finally buried in February 2019,” he said.

Secondus thanked the government and people of Rivers State for hosting the convention.

In a sermon, Apostle Zilly Aggrey said the PDP is right to thank God for the successful hosting of its national convention, noting that it was a platform for greater success.

Rivers State PDP Chairman Felix Obuah said despite obstacles, God ensured that the national convention was the best ever.
