Ogu/Bolo political leaders and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, delegates to the Rivers State PDP Governorship Primary have endorsed Barrister Nyesom Ezenwo Wike as the party’s flagbearer for the 2015 election.
The Ogu/Bolo PDP chairman, Mr Arnold David announced the endorsement during the interaction between Barrister Wike and the delegates at the PDP secretariat in Bolo.
He said the people resolved in favour of Barrister Wike because he has attracted key projects and appointments to the area, with a promise of more when he emerges as governor.
In his remarks, Senator George Sekibo of Rivers East Senatorial District, urged Rivers people to vote the former Minister who has proved himself as a development promoter.
He said that the decision to endorse Wike is in the interest of Rivers State and the victory of the PDP during the general election.
Rt Hon. Evans Bipi of the Rivers State House of Assembly ssaid negative propaganda by the opposition will fail as Rivers people are behind Wike.
Responding, Barrister Nyesom Ezenwo Wike assured the people of Ogu/Bolo of positive infrastructural development when he emerges as governor of the state.
He noted that he appreciates the endorsement of the PDP leaders, pointing out that with unity APC will be defeated.
The aspirant urged other aspirants to fight against APC rather than fight him (Wike).
“The more these aspirants attack me, the more support I will get from the people. No amount of blackmail will affect the support the people have for me”, he said.
He said that he is focused to delivering democracy dividends to the ordinary people who have been shut out by the present administration.
He said: “I am committed to the development of Ogo/Bolo LGA and I will never take your support for granted. I am interested in the well being of the people and that is my focus. Nobody can distract us as we shall defeat APC”.
Barrister Wike urged the people to get their permanent voter cards to vote out APC.
