Market women, youth and commercial motorcyclists groups in Ikwerre local government area of Rivers State, have declared support for the reelextoon bid of governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, based on his performances in office.
The groups made the declaration yesterday at Isiokpo, headquarters of Ikwerre local government area, during a sensitisation tour of One Million Youths for New Rivers State, said they will work for the reelection of Wike because his projects have impacted their lives positively.
Speaking at the rally, chairman of Ikwerre local government area, Hon. Samuel Nwanosike stated that the antics of the opposition will fail in the area because the people are with the governor.
Nwanosike noted that key projects such as Isiokpo internal roads, Ipo-Airport road, General Hospital, Isiokpo and the reconstruction of basic schools in the area have transformed the local government area.
He furrher noted that the decision to reelect Wike flows from the fact that more projects will be attracted to the area during his second term.
In his speech, coordinator of One Million Youths for New Rivers State, Hon. Ehie Edison assured that the youths will continue to drum support for the governor because he is youth friendly.
Edison said since the creation of Rivers State, no administration has offered youths more opportunities in government than the Wike led administration.
He said, “All Rivers youths will stay at the INEC office and defend their votes. We will not be intimidated by the use of SARS , military or thugs.
We shall stand firm to defend votes cast in favour of the PDP and Governor Wike.”
