The state’s governor, Nyesom Wike, has stated that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is fully prepared for the 2023 general election in the state.
The statement was the refrain during the governor’s New Year’s visits to former Rivers governor Dr.
The Governor of Rivers State told Dr. Odili that he remains eternally grateful for the support he has provided his administration since 2015.
Governor Wike was joined by the PDP gubernatorial candidate, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, senatorial candidates for Rivers South East and Rivers East, Senator Barry Mpigi and Allwell Onyesoh, Member of the House of Representatives, Ken Chikere and others.
Ahead of the 2023 general election, he urged Dr Odili to pray for a seamless transition in the state and for the PDP to win all electoral positions.
In response, Dr. Odili said that every sincere Rivers person is proud of Governor Wike for the honor he has brought to the state as the top performing governor in the country.
He commended Governor Wike for fearlessly defending and protecting the interests of the state from existential threats that many did not know existed.
The elder statesman assured the governor that he remains committed to the PDP’s total victory in the state in the 2023 general election.
In Emohua, Governor Wike told His Royal Majesty, Nne-Nwe-Eli Emohua XIII (OLO IV), Ohna Sergeant Chidi Awuse that he had come to the council to formally inform PDP stakeholders that the party was politically active and ready for the 2023 General Election.
“We are prepared for the politics and elections of 2023. We want to make it clear whether we are ready for this year’s elections at the local, national and international level.”
He praised the king for his unparalleled support to the Rivers State government since 2015.
The governor, who had previously visited former Senate Minority Leader Senator Bennett Birabi in Yeghe in the Gokana Local Government Area, said he is optimistic his administration will end strongly.
Governor Wike said any road construction projects flagged statewide will be completed before he leaves office in May.
“Continue to pray for us as our term of office draws to a close. We pray that we end well, as we have always hoped that God will allow us to end well.
In the same vein, the governor also visited the former president of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People, MOSOP and Ledum Mitee in the K-Dere community.
He praised Mitee for sacrificing his legal career in pursuit of justice, fairness and fairness for the Ogoni people.
I said, ‘We have come to wish you a Happy New Year and encourage you to continue to play the role of your elder statesman to ensure that Rivers State is one, Rivers State working together for the benefit of each person. You are a serialized Rivers person.
“Nigerians know you as someone who will always stand for justice, equality and fairness. You paid the price to stand up for justice. Everyone knows that if you’re not for what you stood for, you’re one of the shining spotlights in the legal profession.’
Mitee said in response that he was delighted with the visit and prayed to God to continue to give the governor the wisdom to manage the affairs of the state.
“We are so thankful to God for giving you the vision and passion for Rivers State,” he added.
