Eze Ikegbidi said time has come for Rivers youths to stand up to defend democracy in the state, stressing that no one should be intimidated by the antics of the opposition as far as the forth-coming elections are concerned.
The traditional ruler also commended Governor Wike for extending development projects to all parts of the state.
He further told youths who are willing to go for elective positions not to underrate themselves, adding that they must remain focused and work with the state government to improve the society.
Eze Ikegbidi also promised to support the group to realise its ambition.
Meanwhile, the PDP Congress of Youths and Students has rated the administration of Governor Wike high in infrastructural and human development.

Emmanuel, who hails from Bayelsa State said that Governor Wike’s achievements in three years are more than what the governors of Bayelsa have done since the creation of the state.
