Polls: 50 reasons Wike should be re-elected –Group


A non-governmental organisation, Grassroots For Good Governance (GFGG), has said Rivers people have every reason to re-elect Governor Nyesom Wike, on Saturday.

The group also sued for peace in the state, as the governorship and House of Assembly elections approach.

Briefing newsmen yesterday, in Port Harcourt, on 50 reasons Wike should be re-elected, the National Coordinator of the group, Princess Joy Kanu, called on Rivers people to give peace a chance, and allow the will of the people to prevail.

Kanu noted the numerous transformational programmes and projects Wike’s government has implemented, which need to be sustained, and advised security personnel deployed to monitor the elections to remain apolitical.

She said: “Today’s briefing is centred on the re-election of governor Wike, because of all he has done for the people of Rivers State. We call on the people of Rivers State to give peace a chance.

“Our security personnel are advised not to take sidesbut remain neutral in the forthcoming election. What happened during the last elections, especially the killings of innocent people, will no longer be tolerated in Rivers State.”

On his part, the  state Coordinator of GFGG,  Levi Kenaam, said the governor has achieved a lot of development in the state, stressing that if given another opportunity, he would be able to complete his ongoing projects and even attract more development to the state.

He said: “Governor Wike has become the people’s favourite leader in Nigeria, following high rate of pro-people’s projects execution. These were accomplished through the governor’s prudent management of scarce resources, despite the economic recession.

“Also, these projects have direct relevance to the welfare and economic development of the state. The Wike administration is investing resources in the improvement of the living condition of the people.”
