The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has called on the All Progressives Congress, APC, to prepare its handover notes at the Federal level for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 2023,
The top South-South Governor, boasted that Nigerians are earnestly waiting for the PDP to take over power, in order to ensure good governance in the country.
He spoke on Wednesday, at the inauguration of the 11.53km Agbonchai-Afam road, connecting Eleme and Oyigbo Local Government Areas, and performed by the former Senate Majority Leader, Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume.
Governor Wike, in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri, said that the PDP has continued to satisfy the increased yearnings of Nigerians for good governance, improved economy, and developmental projects in its various States.
His words: “Eleme people, I want to sincerely thank you for the support that you have given to me and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. Do not relent. Continue, because the hope of this country depends on PDP.”
He maintained that the PDP is working in Rivers State and its various controlled States, insisting that the party would kick out the APC at the centre, come 2023 general elections.
He urged Senator Ndume and the APC to respect the wishes of Nigerians, who are determined to return the PDP to power in 2023.
He added: “To our special Guest of Honour (Ndume), he should not be angry, because we are taking over from them. When they came, we did not fight, they took over. Now, that Nigerians have decided to change them, let them also hand over to us as quickly as possible, without any fight.”
The Governor expressed happiness for fulfilling the promise of reconstructing the Eleme-Afam road, when he campaigned in the area, saying that the completed road would serve as an alternative route to neighbouring States.
Governor Wike also said that his administration completely rebuilt the Government Secondary School, in Onne Town, with the one in Eteo, reaching finishing level.
He said: “Today, we are in Eleme commissioning Agbonchia (in Eleme)-Afam in Oyigbo Local Government Road. This road traverses two Local Government Areas. Nobody will say that we have not come to Rivers East Senatorial District to do anything.
“As I speak to you now, by the end of this month, we are coming back to Alesa Secondary School and Ascension High School. Those Schools will be rebuilt completely.
“And because you gave me a good, reliable, and trusted person who is my Commissioner of Finance, there is this other road here that needs attention, I will reconstruct it.”
