– Wike may also unveil Atiku as Nigeria’s best hope for 2019
When former president, Abubakar Atiku, made up his mind to run for 2019 on the platform of the PDP, it was to Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and in fact in the Brick House in Port Harcourt that the Adamawa kingpin announced the decision.
Now, he is back in PH to do more groundwork, apparently believing that Wike, plus the national chairman of the party (that Wike installed), Uche Secondus) would be the pillars of his ambition.
Atiku has thus unveiled Wike as the best governor in Nigeria and says he has found out why, after helping to commission a road in PH.
Atiku Abubakar has stated Wike has continued to win the best governor’s award because of his state-wide delivery of relevant projects.
Speaking before commissioning 11 roads under the Isiokpo Internal Roads Phase 1 constructed by the administration of Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike in Ikwerre Local Government Area on Thursday, Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar said that Governor Wike has won the “Governor of the Year Award ” consecutively since 2016 because he is executing projects to improve the lives of the people.
He said: “Since May this year as part of the Third Anniversary of Governor Wike’s administration, one project is commissioned each day. The Isiokpo Internal Roads form part of the projects.
“No wonder, Governor Wike keeps winning the “Best Governor of the Year ” consecutively since 2016. No governor has achieved that record. It will be very difficult to beat that reord.
“I am extremely proud of Governor Wike’s achievements and we are proud of the governor’s leadership “.
In his remarks, Wike said that the second phase of Isiokpo Internal Roads would be completed before the end of this year.
The governor said the previous administration in the state could not commission projects because no projects existed.
“When we make promises, we fulfill our promises. We are not like those who make promises and give excuses why they cannot be achieved “, he said.
Governor Wike urged Isiokpo people to reciprocate the developmental strides of his administration by ensuring they supported PDP in 2019.
