Wike deceiving Rivers people – PDP campaign spokesman


The PDP Presidential Campaign Spokesman for RIVERS State Leloonu Nwibubasa has advised the Rivers State Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike to stop misleading the good people of the state by deliberate misinformation.

This he said while reacting to statements made by the governor during the inauguration of the state gubernatorial campaign council.

Dr Nwibubasa said it wasn’t correct for governor Wike to claim that the PDP Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar did not reach out to him to send nominees from the state to the Presidential Campaign Council of the party, rather it’s the Gov that denied RIVERS PEOPLE more representation in the campaign council by refusing to send in nominees.

“Again Rivers People will not be deceived or hoodwinked to support any other Presidential candidate apart from Atiku Abubakar on the basis of Governor Wike’s twisted ‘state interest’.

“It is in public domain that no other Presidential candidate has the interest of Rivers State at heart like Atiku Abubakar. Atiku’s businesses in the state has provided more jobs in Rivers State and trained over seven hundred thousand people in Rivers State in various skills and craft.

“His investments has created wealth and boost the economy of the state . He is a friend of Rivers People, that’s the reason despite Gov Wike’s antagonism he still appointed many very credible Rivers sons into his Presidential Campaign council” .

Nwibubasa said that it is a great surprise and also of grave concern that Gov Wike openly declared party leaders, fathers and kinsmen in the state ‘enemies of the state’ for their decision to support our Party’s Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar.

“Rivers People must recall that few months ago, the same ‘enemies of the state’ traversed the length and breath of this country risking their lives on land and in the air to help Gov Wike in his ill-fated Presidential bid.

“They gave their best. If their best could not push Gov Wike through, should they also join Gov Wike to destroy the party that made them, With Gov Wike being the highest beneficiary?

“Also remember, that though Barr Wike was not the most qualified to be governor of Rivers State in 2015, more so for reasons bothering on equity and fairness, Gov. Amaechi having done two terms from the same Ikwerre ethnic group, these men who are now named enemies of the state for the love of PDP, for party cohesion and unity supported Barr Wike in no small measure to be governor of Rivers State. Who has stolen the memories of my dear governor. Who has bewitched you to attempt to destroy womb from which you were made. My dear governor, in the words of Dame Patience Jonathan ” there is God oo”.

“My dear brother and sister from Rivers State, do not allow anyone push you against your brothers for any reason. Who you vote for is your personal choice
born of your personal conviction.

“We will continue to support Atiku Abubakar because of the verifiable evidence of his productive passion for the development of our dear state. Atiku is set to do more for Rivers State and our dear country”.
