Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that the electoral prospects of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state have been enhanced following the outstanding performance of his administration. Speaking during a special appearance on Viewpoint, Rhythm FM, Port Harcourt Phone-in Programme on Saturday, Governor Wike said that his projects and programmes rolled out across the state had made the PDP more acceptable to the people. He said: “If elections are held 100 times in Rivers State, the PDP will win. The chances of the PDP are even brighter in Rivers State as a result of my performance. “I have projects located in all local government areas of the state. I have reasons in each local government area why the people should vote for me.”.
He explained that if it was in terms of performance and projects delivery, the PDP would wax stronger in subsequent elections. Governor Wike said though several groups had endorsed him for a second term, he would only declare after extensive consultations with stakeholders across the board.
He said: “If I have the consent of stakeholders, I will win in 2019 because I have projects located state-wide. In all Local Government Areas, I have reasons why the people should vote for me”. The governor noted that the series of awards that he had won were testimonies that his administration had done well.
