Wike Flags off PDP State Campaign, Says APC Lost Political Stake In Rivers


Gov. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike of Rivers State on Wednesday in Port Harcourt flagged off his campaign for a second term, declaring that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has lost the political struggle in the state due to the greed of a political godfather. 

Speaking at the State Campaign Rally flag-off in Tai Local Government Area on Wednesday, Wike alleged that the APC in Rivers was looking for a political party to support during the 2019 general elections. 

He said that the APC has attracted no value to Rivers State, hence Rivers people will overwhelmingly  vote PDP candidates. 

“I hear that the APC in Rivers State are negotiating  for a political  party to support during the 2019 General elections.  But it is already  too late”, he said. 

He said that he has entered a covenant with  Tai people to deliver more projects for them during his second term, noting that they are under obligation to protect their votes during the elections. 

The governor said that over the last three and half years, his administration has planted key projects in the area. 

He announced that  in the coming days he will flag off the construction of General Hospital. 

“This is a project I have agreed with  Tai people to execute for the benefit  of the masses”, he said. 

He said despite the assurances of the New Inspector General of Police (IGP), Rivers people should remain vigilant. 

He said: “Anybody who rigs election in Rivers State will suffer God’s wrath. If you leave your home to come and rig in Rivers State, your family will suffer the consequences “.

Governor  Wike said all the people of Rivers State are looking for,  is free and fair elections, where the people will be allowed to choose their leaders.

He charged the people of Tai  Local Government Area to vote overwhelmingly for PDP Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar during the Presidential elections.  

“Buhari does not like Rivers State.  The only person that will help Rivers State  is Atiku Abubakar.  That is why we will vote for him”, the governor said. 

Rivers South East Senatorial District PDP Candidate, Mr Barry Mpigi said the people of the area will vote Governor Wike because the Rivers State Governor is the father of modern Rivers State. 

Rivers State PDP Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah  said Tai Local Government Area is a fertile ground for PDP  because of the key projects executed by Governor Wike. 

Commissioner for Special Duties, Dr John Bazia noted that  Governor Wike has executed eight projects in the area. He said all Tai people are solidly  in support of the Rivers State Governor. 

Hundreds of APC chieftains led by the party’s women leader, Mrs Victoria Mgboh  defected to the PDP. The Former APC Women Leader said they were attracted to the PDP by Governor Wike’s  performance.
