Stakeholders in Opobo/Nkoro Local Government Area of Rivers State have thrown their weight behind Governor Nyesom Wike for a second tenure in office come 2019.
They also cautioned the All Progressives Congress (APC) to guard against inflammatory comments capable of overheating the polity in the state ahead of next year’s general elections.
Speaking with The Tide last Wednesday at Nkoro Town shortly after the flag-off of water projects in the area by the governor, some stakeholders hailed Governor Wike’s administration, describing his leadership as, “remarkable”.
Lending credence to this, chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the area, Hon. Daniel Legg-Jack lauded Wike’s development strides in all the nooks and crannies of the state, stressing that he has performed above all imaginations.
Legg-Jack, however, appealed to the electorate in the area to give the governor yet another support in 2019 polls to enable him consolidate on his lofty people-oriented development projects for their well-being, affirming the position of the oil-rich state in the comity of states in Nigeria as very commendable.
On the ongoing Permanent Voter Card (PVC) registration, the PDP boss also called on all eligible voters in the area to take advantage of the current voters registration exercise and ensure that they obtained their PVCs to enable them vote during the forth-coming local government election and subsequent ones.
He, therefore, enjoined them to guard their PVCs jealously and vote for Governor Wike and other PDP candidates.
Also speaking on the performance of the governor, former Dean, Faculty of Management Sciences, Rivers State University, Port Harcourt, Prof. Adolphus Toby thanked Governor Wike for the numerous developmental projects in the state, including the just flagged-off water project, explaining that all these have shown that the governor meant well for the people and not bogus propaganda on the pages of newspapers.
Toby, however, drummed support for the governor for a second tenure to enable him complete on-going capital-intensive projects across the 23 local government areas of the state.
