Meanwhile, Rivers State Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has said the 2023 general election in the state will be a crucial moment that the electorate will use to decide against those who hate the state.
The governor, therefore, said that the election will be a fight to the finish and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state is going to win all contested seats at the end of the day.
Wike spoke yesterday at the local government campaign flag-off rally of the PDP, which held at Felix Obuah Pavilion, Omoku Town in Ogba-Egbema- Ndoni local government area of the state.
He stated that at previous times when PDP went into election, it won the governorship, senatorial, House of Representatives and State House of Assembly seats, adding that in the forth coming election, the situation will not be different.
Wike explained that when Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni, Abua/Odual, Ahoada East, Ahoada West local government areas of the state experienced flooding last year, the state government did not abandon them to their fate.
The governor said: “That is how you know those who hate Rivers State, that is how you know those who love us. If you hate Rivers State, we will not give you our vote. We will only give our vote to those who love Rivers State.
“You have to listen to your leaders through the director general of the campaign. They will come back to you, sit you down and tell you where we are heading to.
“It is a fight to finish. Do not be afraid. We are going to win at the end of the day. You know that we have always won. We will continue to win.
“We have never failed in anything we have told you. Success has always been with us. God has been with us. This time is not going to be different. God will continue to lead us.”
The governor implored the people to repeat the level of support that they gave to the PDP in 2015 and 2019 in order to consolidate what his administration had already accomplished.
In his speech, the PDP governorship candidate, Sir Siminialayi Fubara, recounted the successes of the Wike administration, which the consolidation team will reenact.
The PDP governorship candidate said: “What we stand for is good governance. Good governance is providing services. Good governance is making life easy, and that is what my principal has done for you and that is where I stand with you.”
