Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has told the All Progressives Congress (APC) to prepare its handover notes at the federal level for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in 2023.
The governor boasted that Nigerians were earnestly waiting for the PDP to take over power in order to ensure good governance in the country.
Wike 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.
The governor in a statement signed by his Special Assistant, Media, Kelvin Ebiri, said PDP had continued to satisfy the increased yearnings of Nigerians for good governance, improved economy and developmental projects in its various states.
He said: “Eleme people, I want to sincerely thank you for the support that you’ve given to me and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). Do not relent. Continue because the hope of this country depends on PDP.”
He said the PDP was working in Rivers and its various controlled states insisting that the party would kick out the APC at the centre.
He urged Senator Ndume and the APC to respect the wishes of Nigerians, who were determined to return the PDP to power in 2023.
He said, “To our special Guest of Honour (Ndume), he should not be angry because we are taking over from them. When they came, we didn’t 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 the completed road would serve as an alternative route to neighbouring states.
Wike also said his administration completely rebuilt the Government Secondary School in Onne Town with the one in Eteo reaching finishing level.
