The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said it impressed with Governor Nyesom Wike’s commitment within 100 days in office to decongest the state of abandoned projects which ‘were the only legacy left behind by his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi.’
The State PDP Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah, through a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, Tuesday, said Governor Wike has ‘lived true to his electioneering campaign promise of leaving no abandoned projects in the State, irrespective of under whose administration such projects were started, since government is a continuum.’
The State PDP boss said notwithstanding that the enemies of the State and political opponents had cashed in on the promise to litter the State with abandoned projects amounting to billions of naira deficit, Gov Wike has proved that ‘he is the Governor for Rivers State and not for a particular party or group by ensuring that such projects that will impact positively on the people are completed, not minding the lean resources at his disposal.’
“This is what makes our party different from others who have turned morality on its head, to whom what was bad, became good, what is good, bad.
“Our opponents and critics have lost sight of the fact that human dignity and well-being lie in the heart of all progress which the PDP symbolizes,” the PDP chairman declared.
He therefore, congratulated Gov Wike for his magnanimity in victory and commitment to overall development of the State through meaningful and realizable infrastructural investments, assuring the governor of the party’s unalloyed support and prayers and also hoping that at the end of his tenure, the evil men and prophets of doom will but take their rightful place in shame and agonizing melancholy.
