2023: Rivers can’t be second class citizens to anybody – Wike

Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike has told Rivers people to stand firm and resist persons, who want to make them second class citizens in the country.

Speaking about the forthcoming presidential election, the Governor appealed to the people to use their votes and protect Rivers.

THE NATION reports that, Wike spoke on Monday at the Kelechi Nwogu Legacy Stadium where the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) inaugurated its campaign for Omuma Local Government Area.

The Governor said nobody could take away the flag from them insisting that they would never allow anybody to intimidate them.

He said no matter the gang-up, the people must stand firm and support all arrangements designed to protect the interest of the state.

He said: “Nobody should be afraid of whatever is going on in the country. We cannot be intimidated. Nobody can take away this flag away from us. We are not second class citizen to anybody and we must continue to stand firm and make sure our state is protected.”

Wike said in Rivers, only the PDP governorship candidate Siminialayi Fubara and his running mate Prof. Ngozi Odu, could consolidate on the gains of his administration.

Insisting that Rivers would be safe in the hands of Fubara and Odu, Wike described the duo as seasoned technocrats with requisite experience about the workings of government and capacity to continue with the state’s developmental trajectory.

The Governor recalled that when he asked Omuma people to vote for him as Governor in 2015 and 2019, he made promises that had all been fulfilled in terms of project delivery.
