The APC was believed not to have candidates for the coming elections in Rivers State but as Tonye Cole collected the flag in Uyo and members began to brag about certainty of winning in Rivers State, the PDP countered, saying it was sure to win.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is comfortable that it will win the 2019 general elections in Rivers State even as the opposing All Progressives Congress is enmeshed in multiple controversies.
In a press statement issued today, the Director of Information and Communications Emma Okah said the PDP has worked hard, fulfilled promises made and served the people well.
“In 2015, Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, in his convinctions, went round the state and saw the plight of his people, felt their pulse, shared their pain and made promises to turn things around for good” Okah said, noting that the state is more developed today than he met it, asserting that the 2019 general elections will be between a Governor who has earned the trust of the people and others who have no traceable signature.
According to the statement, sentiments are running high as to what the people of Rivers State should expect and the reponses that are pouring in for the governor show a good measure of appreciation and gratitude for lifting the state higher.
“There was recession but Governor Wike ran a divine economy, prudently managed resources and provided infrastructure where those who had money failed to. He unchained the judiciary, proclaimed autonomy to the judiciary and granted access to justice” he said.
Okah said those who bore the pain of a caged legislative arm of government, unpaid salary arrears, failed secondary and tertiary medical facilities, anomalies of the last government, etc can attest today that there is a new breeze blowing across the length and breadth of Rivers State since 2015.
On what to expect in the 2019 general elections in the state, Mr Okah said it will be a jamboree and a walk over as there is no credible alternative to the towering political height of Governor Nyeson Ezenwo Wike as a governor and candidate.
The statement further urged all Rivers voters to be bold enough, vote the PDP and resist the return of those who plundered our common wealth and sold our patrimony to strangers.
