My victory  is a function of grassroots support says Governor Wike 

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that his 2019  electoral victory was a function  of his vast grassroots support across the state.

Speaking  when he received elected councillors from all the wards of the State at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Tuesday, Governor Wike thanked the councillors and other grassroots leaders for their loyalty and support .

The Governor was represented by his Chief of Staff, Engr Chukwuemeka Woke.

He said: “I want to thank you for your support during the last elections.  We were confident because we had the support  of the grassroots.

“I will work with you and cooperate with you as we move the state forward”.

He charged the  councillors to work with their council chairmen as they strive to deliver  development  to their respective communities.  He said that councillors  must desist from fighting their Council Chairmen as they were elected  to serve their people.

“Cooperate  and work in synergy with your Council Chairmen, with a view to serving your people.  Service  is a responsibility that has been entrusted on you by your people “, he said.

The  Governor urged the councillors  to mobilise  their constituents for the State Thanksgiving on Saturday  and the Second Term Inauguration on May 29, 2019.

Leader of the Rivers State Councillors Forum, Collins Omunnakwe of Port Harcourt City Local Government Area, said that the councillors  staged the victory walk to celebrate the victory of Governor Wike and emphasise  their loyalty to his Administration.

He said: “We put ourselves  together  to stage this victory march to celebrate the governor’s re-election because  we believe  in him.

“We are from the 23 Local Government Areas and we are publicly  saying that all the elected councillors  are solidly  behind  our Governor”.
