… Commends Party Members
… As Delegates Emerge Across The State
The Chairman Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Bro Felix Obuah has expressed joy and satisfaction over the peaceful and successful conduct of ward congresses in the 319 wards of the State.
The PDP Chairman also commended party members for peacefully turning out en-masse to vote delegates of their choice during the ward congresses held on Saturday November 1, 2014.
He said the successful and peaceful conduct of the ward congresses has proved the party right that those who were calling for the postponement of the ward congresses are agents of the All Progressives Congress, APC, who are moles in the PDP, acting out the script of their pay master and Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi.
He assures that the PDP would win all elections in Rivers State.
