Wike Sends Message To Loyalists, Supporters On Who To Vote For in 2023 General Elections

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has told his supporters and loyalists across the state that their votes should be reserved for candidates that have developmental agenda for the state.

The governor stated this at the inauguration of the remodeled Waterlines House in Port Harcourt yesterday, adding that, he would at the appropriate time tell them “who and who” to vote for during the general elections.

“I will not allow this state to go astray to fall into the hands of armed robbers,” he vowed, stating that, he had “challenged the country in so many things that were against the interest” of the state.

Wike, a Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), said some governorship candidates in other political parties have nothing to offer the state.

His words: “I thank all Rivers people for the support you have given us and for the prayers you are offering on our behalf. I will continue to let you know that we will not let you down.

“We will continue to do the best for Rivers and that is why we also tell you to listen to us. We will tell you those to vote for because I will tell you who is who.

“There are those who just want to be governor, but they have no agenda. And in any case, why will you change a winning team that has given you all these.”

Wike maintained that the people of Rivers State were pleased with the infrastructural and human developmental strides of his administration and would vote massively for PDP candidates in the general election.

The governor said he was grateful for the opportunity that Rivers people gave him to serve them as their governor, and promised to someday render an account of his stewardship.

He said: “I will give accounts and that account I am going to give is that Rivers State, you gave me the opportunity, see what I have done. I have defended Rivers state. I will never sell this state for one Kobo.”

Wike described Rivers as the most peaceful state in the country because of the blessing of God on it.

He stressed that because the state operates a “Jesus economy,” his administration was able to initiate new projects and inaugurate completed ones.

The governor said: “Time will come when we will present a report card, local government by local government. I am sure in the next few months we will be in Kalabari to commission the Trans-Kalabari road.

“From Saakpenwa to Kono is about 31 kilometres. In the next few months, we will be there to commission that road that has opened the entire Ogoni area, that has opened Bori as a city.”

Wike also said he had given directives for the release of funds for the completion of the Andoni axis of the Ogoni-Opobo-Andoni Unity Road.

Inaugurating the remodeled Waterlines House, former Kogi State Governor Idris Ibrahim noted that the developmental projects by Wike were physical evidence of good leadership.

Ibrahim said: “Leadership is about people’s wellbeing and welfare and the feat governor Wike has achieved is great in the last seven years of his administration.”
