Governor Wike says Nigerians can’t wait for PDP to return


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that Nigerians are yearning for the return  of  the  Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  following the failure  of  the  APC to deliver democracy dividends.



Governor  Wike  further declared  that APC  will lose the rerun  elections  of July 30, 2016 in Rivers State,  even if Chief John Odighie -Oyegun conducts the elections  as returning officer.


Speaking  during a  solidarity  visit  by the Grassroots Development Initiative  (GDI) Worldwide,  Governor Wike said: “It is obvious that Nigerians are yearning for the return of the PDP.


“No amount of  intimidation will change  the  support  of  the  people  for the PDP.  Nigerians  are wiser now”.


The governor  said his superlative  performance  in the course of his first year has expanded  his support base across Rivers State,  making the PDP  the preferred  choice of the people.


He pointed out  that irrespective  of  the  resident electoral commissioner who conducts the  rerun  elections  in the state, the APC candidates  will  continue  to  lose because  the people understand  that the APC  cannot deliver  development  projects.



The governor  noted that the APC  Senatorial Candidate for Rivers South East promised Ogoni  people projects during his sojourn in political  office, but delivered  none.


He said: “We promised the Ogoni people during the campaigns and today we are dualizing the Sakpwenwa-Bori road and rehabilitating the Birabi Memorial Grammar School, Bori.  Therefore,  the Ogoni people know the political  party that is committed  to  their welfare “.



He commended  the  GDI  for working  with  the  PDP to ensure the victory of the choice of  the people during the 2015 elections.



Earlier,  the President General of  GDI, Mr Bright Amaewhule praised Governor Wike  for using his mandate to improve  the  living condition  of the people.
