Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that he will accept the numerous endorsements by different ethnic nationalities when he receives their firm assurance that they will defend their votes in 2019.
The governor said that the way that the APC Federal Government has failed in all areas, it will set out to write results in 2019, hence the need for the people to defend their votes.
Speaking during the Civic Reception organised in his honour by the Apara Kingdom on Saturday in Port Harcourt, Governor Wike said: “I will declare when you assure me you are ready to protect our votes.
“The way Nigeria is going today, the APC Federal Government is only prepared to write results. But this time, the results will write them”
He said that the APC has failed Nigerians, stating that the current fuel scarcity is a sad confirmation of the suffering that the citizens face under their leadership.
“Even if there is fuel, there is no money to buy fuel. Today, the exchange rate of the dollar to naira has degenerated and prices of foodstuffs have gone beyond the reach of Nigerians. They deceived Nigerians with all kinds of lies, but today they are compounding the problems of the people “, he said.
He assured the people of Apara Kingdom that he will not let them down, saying he will continue to churn out developmental projects.
He said: “I will continue to remain focused. Some people did not expect us to perform very excellently, but we have been able to put them to shame. ”
Governor Wike said that he is developing Rivers State because he wants to walk the streets after leaving office without being guarded by soldiers like those who failed the people.
In his remarks, Eze Oha Apara, Eze C. A. Worlu-Wodo announced that the people of Apara Kingdom have endorsed Governor Wike for a second term. He urged him to present himself for a second term.
He said that Governor Wike has transformed Rivers State with good governance. He said that the state has become outstanding.
Former Rivers State Attorney General, Mr Frank Ohwor said Governor Wike has demonstrated good character and ability in leadership, noting that his achievements in the state are evident.
He said all Rivers people can see the difference between this administration and the immediate past APC government that failed them. He said that Governor Wike deserves the recognition by his people.
